What to Know
After four games on the road, the Sacramento Kings are heading back home. They will take on the Detroit Pistons at 6 p.m. ET Sunday at Golden 1 Center. The two teams each escaped (but just barely!) with wins against their previous opponents.
Sacramento came out on top in a nail-biter against the Memphis Grizzlies this past Friday, sneaking past 104-101. Sacramento point guard De'Aaron Fox looked sharp as he had 25 points and five assists.
Speaking of close games: Detroit lost 113-111 to the Phoenix Suns this past Friday on a last-minute jumper from Phoenix's shooting guard Devin Booker with 0:01 left to play. The Pistons' success was spearheaded by the efforts of point guard Derrick Rose, who had 31 points, and power forward Christian Wood, who had 19 points and five assists along with nine rebounds.
The Kings are the favorite in this one, with an expected 7.5-point margin of victory. They are currently five-for-five against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Their wins bumped Sacramento to 25-34 and the Pistons to 20-41. We'll see who can continue their climb to a .500 record.
