The Sacramento Kings look for their third straight win to climb out of a 3-7 hole. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 103.5 points on 44.5 percent shooting and allowing 108.6 points on 47.9 percent shooting. DeMarcus Cousins is averaging 26.7 points and 11.2 rebounds while Rajon Rondo is averaging 13.1 points and 9.1 assists.

The Sacramento Kings are shooting 38.2 percent from downtown and have won 10 of their last 16 games when topping 100 points. The Kings are forcing 17.1 turnovers, three more than league average. The Kings have split their last 10 home games. Rudy Gay and Darren Collison are questionable.
The Raptors are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Kings are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Raptors are 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Sacramento and the home team is 17-8 ATS in the last 25 meetings.
The Raptors have shown to be one of the more balanced team in the East and have been crazy consistent out of the gate. I'll gladly lay the bucket here against an inconsistent Kings team.
