The Sacramento Kings could use a nice win after losing 13 of their last 16 games. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 106.4 points on 46.3 percent shooting and allowing 109.2 points on 46.4 percent shooting. Rudy Gay is averaging 17.2 points and 6.4 rebounds while Darren Collison is averaging 13.6 points and 4.1 assists. Rajon Rondo is dishing 11.7 assists and Omri Casspi is grabbing six rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 35.5 percent from beyond the arc and 72.7 percent from the free throw line. The Kings are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.4 rebounds per game. The Sacramento Kings have lost seven straight home games. DeMarcus Cousins is questionable with a knee injury.
The Suns are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 7-21 ATS in their last 28 road games. The Kings are 3-11-1 ATS in their last 15 games playing on 1 days rest and 8-19-1 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The over is 9-3-1 in the last 13 meetings.
I don't trust either one of these teams, but assuming Cousins plays, the Kings should beat up an injured Suns team that's lost 12 of its last 15 road games.
