The Chicago Bulls play host to the Sacramento Kings at the United Center on Saturday night. Here’s a Bulls vs Kings Prediction.

Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings have been in great shape as they've won five of their last six games overall and they will be eager to keep it going after routing the Pacers in a 133-122 road win last night. Domantas Sabonis led the team with 26 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists, De'Aaron Fox added 25 points with six steals, Malik Monk scored 23 points and six assists off the bench while Harrison Barnes chipped in with 22 points. As a team, the Kings shot 56 percent from the field and 13 of 34 from the 3-point line as they stormed out of the gates with 71 points in the first half, before they went on another run in the third quarter to push the lead out to 18 points. The Kings will play against the Cavaliers after this one.

Chicago Bulls

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls have been in decent form as they've won four of their last seven games overall and they will be hoping to build some momentum after sneaking past the Hornets in a 117-110 road win on Wednesday. Coby White led the team with 35 points, seven rebounds and nine assists, Nikola Vucevic added 22 points with 12 rebounds and two blocks while Ayo Dosunmu chipped in with 16 points and six assists. As a team, the Bulls shot 51 percent from the field and 11 of 29 from the 3-point line as they got off to a slow start and trailed by 10 points early, before they took over in the second half to get the road win and improve to 9-15 on the road so far.

Chicago Bulls Player Facts

  • Alex Caruso is one of only six qualified players in the league averaging at least 1.0 threes, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks this season.
  • Nikola Vucevic ranks 8th amongst qualified players for rebounds per game (10.5) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Bulls ranks 30th in the league for pace this season (96.3).
  • The Bulls rank 29th in the league for opponent three-point field goals made per game this season (14.2).
  • The Kings rank 1st in the league for opponent offensive rebounds per game this season (9.2).
  • The Kings rank 30th in the league for free throw percentage this season (72.8%).

Bulls vs Kings Prediction

The Kings are coming into this one with plenty of winning momentum and they would've taken plenty of confidence from last night's big win over the Pacers. The Bulls have cooled off a bit recently and they were far from convincing in their narrow win over the Hornets, but they should be well-rested as they haven't played since Wednesday. You can make an argument for either side here, but with the Kings playing this one on zero days' rest, I'm more comfortable going with the shorthanded Bulls at home.
