The Chicago Bulls and the Sacramento Kings do battle tonight at the Sleep Train Arena.
The Bulls look to be in a serious slump after falling to the Jazz by 105-96 in overtime on Monday for their fifth loss in seven games. Jimmy Butler led the team in scoring with 26 points, Pau Gasol added 19 points while Derrick Rose chipped in with 14 points as the Bulls lost despite leading by 93-90 with just 18.5 seconds left in the fourth quarter. The Jazz would rally to tie the game and force overtime where the Bulls committed three turnovers and finished without making a single field goal. With the disappointing loss, Chicago falls to 26-21 on the season and 10-12 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Kings were able to snap a four-game skid with a 111-104 win over the Bucks on Monday. Rudy Gay scored a game-high 32 points with nine rebounds and six assists, Rajon Rondo added 19 points while Marco Belinelli had 18 as the Kings rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Bucks without their best player in DeMarcus Cousins who is dealing with a sprained ankle and is listed as questionable for tonight's game. With the win, Sacramento improved to 21-27 overall and 13-12 at home.
In ATS trends, the Bulls are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games overall and 1-5 ATS in their last six games against a team with a losing record, while the Kings are 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a win and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall.
Head to head, the Bulls are 1-6 ATS in the last seven meetings overall and the home team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
Cousins has been spotted at the shootaround which means he is likely to suit up for tonight's game against the Bulls and if he does, I think this is a great spot for the Kings at home.
