The Miami Heat invade the Golden 1 Center to take on the Sacramento Kings on Monday night. Here’s a Heat vs Kings Prediction.

Miami Heat

The Miami Heat have been in great form as they’ve won seven of their last nine games overall and they will be aiming for a fourth straight win after routing the Pelicans in a 106-95 road win on Friday. Bam Adebayo led the team with 24 points on 11 of 18 shooting, Jimmy Butler added 23 points with nine rebounds and six assists while Duncan Robinson chipped in with 17 points off the bench. As a team, the Heat shot 46 percent from the field and 13 of 29 from the 3-point line, but this win was all about their effort on defense as they were actually deadlocked with the Pelicans in the first half, before they clamped down and held the Pelicans to just 37 points in the second half to make it look easy in the end.

 Sacramento Kings

 Meanwhile, the Sacramento Kings are starting to get on a roll as they are now gunning for a fourth straight win after blowing past the Clippers in a 123-107 road win last night. De’Aaron Fox led the team with 33 points and seven assists, Harrison Barnes added 22 points on eight of 12 shooting while Domantas Sabonis tallied a triple-double of 17 points with 15 rebounds and 12 assists. As a team, the Kings shot 49 percent from the field and 15 of 37 from the 3-point line as they caught fire in the second quarter to take the lead into halftime, and things only got better for them in the second half once Harrison Barnes and Kevin Huerter joined in on the scoring.

Sacramento Kings Team Facts

  • The Kings have lost each of their last eight games on the second leg of a back-to-back against the Heat.
  • The Kings have failed to cover the spread in each of their last seven games as home favorites on the second leg of a back-to-back.
  • Each of the Kings’ last 11 games as home favorites against opponents who are on the first leg of a back-to-back have gone OVER the total points line.

Miami Heat Team Facts

  • The underdogs have won each of the Heat’s last four games at Golden 1 Center.
  • The Heat have covered the spread in each of their last six games.
  • Each of the Heat’s last 12 games against Pacific Division opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Heat vs Kings Prediction

The Heat could be short handed once again with Orlando Robinson, Terry Rozier and Tyler Herro all listed as questionable, while the Kings are still without Sasha Vezenkov and Alex Len. The Heat have been flying under the radar a bit lately as they’ve been playing some of their best basketball of the season with seven wins in their last nine games, while the Kings are aiming for a fourth straight win after routing the Clippers in an impressive road win last night. There’s an injury cloud hanging over the Heat in this one, but I think we’re getting enough points to back the Heat to at least keep this one close.
