The Sacramento Kings could use a victory after losing five of their last seven games. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 104.9 points on 45.4 percent shooting and allowing 109.1 points on 47.1 percent shooting. Rudy Gay is averaging 18.4 points and 6.7 rebounds while Darren Collison is averaging 12.8 points and 3.9 assists. Rajon Rondo is dishing 11 assists and Omri Casspi is grabbing 6.2 rebounds.

The Kings are allowing 34.5 percent shooting from deep and have allowed 100-plus points in four straight games. The Sacramento Kings have lost five of their last eight home games. Caron Butler and DeMarcus Cousins are questionable.
The Mavericks are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Monday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Kings are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss. Mavericks are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Mavs haven't been good at all recently when playing on the road. Also, I don't like an older Dallas team against a younger and more athletic teams. If Cousins plays, I like the Kings to get the job done here.
