The Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns play Wednesday night at the Talking Stick Resort Arena.
The Sacramento Kings could use a big road win after a tough 1-3 start to the year. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 108.5 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 110.5 points on 49.4 percent shooting. Rudy Gay is averaging 18.3 points and 2.7 assists while Rajon Rondo is averaging 15.3 points and 6.7 assists. Darren Collison is dishing five assists and Omri Casspi is grabbing 7.3 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are coming off a Tuesday loss to the Grizzlies in which they allowed 48.2 percent shooting. The Kings defense has been pretty bad to start the season, and they’ve lost 10 of their last 13 games when allowing 100 or more points. DeMarcus Cousins is out with an achilles injury.

The Phoenix Suns look for a nice home win to get a game above a .500 record. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 100.5 points on 40.3 percent shooting and allowing 98.8 points on 43.4 percent shooting. Eric Bledsoe is averaging 21 points and five assists while Brandon Knight is averaging 18 points and five assists. Tyson Chandler is grabbing 11.8 rebounds and Jon Leuer is dishing 1.5 assists. The Phoenix Suns are relying on their 52.8 rebounds per game and their high volume offense that includes 90.5 field goal attempts. The Suns have won nine of their last 12 games when scoring 100 or more points. Devin Booker is questionable with an ankle injury.
The Kings are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games. The Suns are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games. The Kings are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Phoenix.
The Suns should eat all day with the way the Kings are taking plays off defensively. Add in the fact Cousins won't be playing, and I see Phoenix dominating the glass and winning this by double digits.
