The Sacramento Kings take on the Charlotte Hornets in Charlotte, North Carolina, at the Spectrum Center on Tuesday. The Sacramento Kings are coming off of a win over the Golden State Warriors after having a surprising loss to the New York Knicks. The Kings are .500 in their last ten games, winning five and losing five.
The Kings are back on track with their winning streak, resulting in an improving 12-14 record after having a disappointing start to the season. A huge reason why the Kings are finding success again is that they now have their two stars back from injuries. The return of Marvin Bayley III and De'Aaron Fox has changed the way the Kings have played and brought them back to a promising team.
The Charlotte Hornets are coming off of a crushing defeat to the Indiana Pacers, losing 107-85. The Hornets have not scored over 85 points in their last two games, but are 5-5 in their last ten games as well.

Sacramento is 16-10 ATS this season
Under is 4-1 in Kings last five games following a straight-up win of more than 10 points.
Charlotte is 15-14 ATS this season
Under is 4-0 in Hornets' last four games as a home underdog.
I think that it can be argued that the Charlotte Hornets actually have the least talented roster in the entire NBA, at least right next to the New York Knicks. However, Charlotte is a better team than what their talent has shown. I think this game will end up being close, however, even though Charlotte is a decent team, the Sacramento Kings are largely a different team, and back to the team that we all thought they were going to be, now that De'Aaron Fox and Marvin Bagley are back. Final Score Prediction, Sacramento Kings win 102-93.
