The Sacramento Kings and the Cleveland Cavaliers collide at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse on Monday night. Here’s a Kings vs Cavs Prediction.

Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings have been in great form as they've won six of their last seven games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after beating the Bulls in a 123-115 road win on Saturday. De'Aaron Fox led the team with 41 points, four assists and five steals, Malik Monk added 22 points with seven assists off the bench while Domantas Sabonis racked up a triple-double of 13 points with 14 rebounds and 10 assists. As a team, the Kings shot 50 percent from the field and 15 of 39 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Bulls from the start, exploding for 39 points in the second quarter to lead by as many as 30 points before they took their foot off the gas in the second half.

Cleveland Cavaliers

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been on fire as they've won 13 of their last 14 games overall and they will be eager to build on their current five-game win streak after routing the Spurs in a 117-101 road win on Saturday. Donovan Mitchell led the team with 31 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, Evan Mobley added 28 points with 10 rebounds and three assists while Jarrett Allen chipped in with 26 points and 16 rebounds. As a team, the Cavaliers shot 47 percent from the field and 13 of 44 from the 3-point line as they made this one look easy from the start, dominating the first half by 67-45 to set up the easy win. Max Strus had a quiet game of just six points on two of nine shooting while Georges Niang scored just two points on zero of nine shooting from the field. The Cavs will face the Wizards, Nets, and Raptors after this game.

Kings vs Cavs Prediction

The Kings are coming into this one with plenty of momentum after taking down the Bulls for their sixth win in their last seven games, but the Cavaliers have arguably been the hottest team in the league with 13 wins in their last 14 games. Jarrett Allen is still listed as questionable for the Cavaliers, but that won't deter me from taking the Cavaliers who have barely missed a step over the last three weeks.
