The Sacramento Kings need a win in hopes of snapping a five-game losing streak. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 105 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 111.3 points on 48.7 percent shooting. Rudy Gay is averaging 17.1 points and 2.4 assists while Rajon Rondo is averaging 12.3 points and 7.1 assists. Omri Casspi is grabbing 5.9 rebounds and Marco Belinelli is dishing 2.9 assists. The Sacramento Kings are getting just 57.4 points from their starters and have allowed 100-plus points in every game this season. The Kings will continue to be a mess until they get somewhat healthy. DeMarcus Cousins and Seth Curry are questionable while Darren Collison is out.
The Spurs are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Kings are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. NBA Southwest and 9-19 ATS in their last 28 games playing on 1 days rest. The Spurs are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Sacramento.
The Kings don't play a lick of defense, and now they have a lot of key players banged up. I look for the Spurs to win this game by double digits.
