The Sacramento Kings and Philadelphia 76ers meet Friday in NBA action at the Wells Fargo Center.

The Sacramento Kings are shooting 37.5 percent from beyond the arc and 72.2 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.4 rebounds per game. The Sacramento Kings have lost five of their last seven road games.
The Philadelphia 76ers look for another win after winning seven of their last 11 games. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 114.8 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 111.5 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Joel Embiid is averaging 27.2 points and 13.6 rebounds while Tobias Harris is averaging 19.9 points and 2.6 assists.

The Kings are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Friday games, 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The 76ers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest and 25-9 ATS in their last 34 vs. NBA Pacific. The Kings are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Philadelphia and 7-19 ATS in the last 26 meetings. The under is 19-7 in 76ers last 26 overall. The under is 21-5-1 in Kings last 27 overall.
Despite the lack of positive results recently, the Sacramento Kings are still competing and fighting for a playoff spot. The Kings had the Boston Celtics on the ropes last night before falling apart in the second half. The Philadelphia 76ers are winning, but they rarely blow teams out, as they're outscoring teams by an average of three points in their last five games and are shooting just 44.5 percent from the field in those games. The Kings should be able to push the pace in this contest and test that 76ers defense. I'm just not a believer in the 76ers and their inconsistent, often sloppy play.
