The Line: Portland Trail Blazers -8 -- Over/Under:
The Sacramento Kings and Portland Trail Blazers meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Moda Center.
The Sacramento Kings look to end the season on a high note after losing six of their last nine games.

Buddy Hield is averaging 20.8 points and five rebounds while De'Aaron Fox is averaging 17.3 points and 7.3 assists. Marvin Bagley III is the third double-digit scorer and Harrison Barnes is grabbing 5.6 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 37.7 percent from beyond the arc and 72.5 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 34.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.6 rebounds per game. The Sacramento Kings have lost seven of their last nine road games.
The Portland Trail Blazers look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 12 games. The Portland Trail Blazers are averaging 114.5 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 110.3 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Damian Lillard is averaging 25.9 points and 6.9 assists while CJ McCollum is averaging 21.1 points and 4.1 rebounds. Enes Kanter is the third double-digit scorer and Al-Farouq Aminu is grabbing 7.6 rebounds. The Portland Trail Blazers are shooting 35.7 percent from beyond the arc and 81.4 percent from the free throw line. The Portland Trail Blazers are allowing 35.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48.1 rebounds per game. The Portland Trail Blazers have won each of their last seven home games.
The Kings are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest, 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Trail Blazers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest, 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 8-1 ATS in their last 9 Wednesday games. The Kings are 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the home team is 5-2-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The over is 15-5-1 in Trail Blazers last 21 home games. The under is 28-13-1 in Kings last 42 overall.
The Portland Trail Blazers are still fighting for playoff position, and they're starting to catch fire again with McCollum back in the lineup. The Trail Blazers are also winning at home by an average of 8.5 points. The Sacramento Kings have nothing to play for at this stage, and it can be tough for those type of teams, as the last thing you want to do is play another meaningless game with the season so close to being finished. I look for the Portland Trail Blazers, an experienced team, to continue building this momentum and get a comfortable home victory.
