The Line: Washington Wizards -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Sacramento Kings could be without a couple of key players when they take on the Washington Wizards tonight.
The Kings have eight of their last 10 and will be disappointed that they had their two-game win streak snapped on Friday when they lost to the Celtics by 99-89. DeMarcus Cousins had a monster game of 31 points and 16 rebounds while Isaiah Thomas added 24 points, but the Kings could do little to stop the Celtics who were led by Jared Sullinger's 31 points and 16 rebounds. Sacramento did beat the Bulls and the Raptors prior to Friday, but they're going to need others to step up in the absence of Rudy Gay and Marcus Thornton who are both listed as questionable for tonight's game. The Kings are now 17-33 on the season and 6-17 on the road where they've lost seven of their last eight.

On Friday, John Wall had a monster night of 32 points and 10 assists while four other players finished in double figures, but on the defensive end, the Wizards allowed 67 points in the first half and just couldn't find a way to stop the Cavs' backcourt duo of Dion Waiters and Kyrie Irving who scored 24 and 23 points respectively. With the loss, Washington drops back below .500 at 24-25 on the season and 12-13 at home.
