Sacramento Kings vs Milwaukee Bucks prediction

The Milwaukee Bucks are obviously more than capable of getting the job done here, but they're also a team that's had issues defensively and are on the end of a back to back. The Sacramento Kings are a young, athletic team that has the ability to take advantage of potential tired legs and could give a poor Bucks defense some trouble. This feels like a schedule spot that favors the Kings. Don't love it, but I'd lean toward the Kings and the free buckets.
