The Sacramento Kings and the Miami Heat duke it out at the Kaseya Center on Wednesday night. Here’s a Kings vs Heat Prediction.

Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings are starting to heat up again as they are now gunning for a fifth straight victory after blowing past the Grizzlies in a 103-94 road win on Monday. De'Aaron Fox led the team with 23 points and four assists, Domantas Sabonis tallied 20 points with 26 rebounds and five assists while Kevin Huerter chipped in with 17 points. As a team, the Kings shot 51 percent from the field and 11 of 38 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start, scoring just 18 points in the first quarter to fall behind by 15 points. However, the Kings responded well and dominated the rest of the game to win with time to spare in the end. The Kings will face the Pacers and Bulls after this game.

  • Domantas Sabonis ranks 1st amongst qualified players for rebounds per game (13.0) this season.
  • De'Aaron Fox ranks 5th amongst qualified players for steals per game (1.6) this season.

Miami Heat

Meanwhile, the Miami Heat have been in terrible shape as they are now hoping to arrest a seven-game slide after getting scorched by the Suns in a 118-105 loss on Monday. Jimmy Butler led the team with 26 points, eight rebounds and four assists, Terry Rozier added 21 points while Tyler Herro chipped in with 17 points, six rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Heat shot just 39 percent from the field and 14 of 36 from the 3-point line as they struggled to keep pace from the start, falling behind by 13 points going into halftime before things really got ugly in the third quarter where they trailed by as many as 28 points at one stage.

  • The Kings rank 1st in the league for opponent offensive rebounds per game this season (9.3).

Kings vs Heat Prediction

The Kings have been one of the more streaky teams all season, but they're on a winning streak right now as they've reeled off five straight wins. In contrast, the Heat are mired in their worst slump of the season, they are still missing Duncan Robinson and they just lost to the Suns for their sixth straight defeat. The Heat will turn things around sooner rather than later, but I'm not comfortable backing them as favorites at the moment, so I will lean towards the Kings to pull off the minor upset here.
