What to Know

The 76ers have quite the challenge ahead of them as they're expected to be blown off the court. Having just played yesterday, they will head out on the road to face off against the Sacramento Kings at 10:00 p.m. ET on March 25th at Golden 1 Center. Both teams come into the contest bolstered by wins in their previous matches.

Winning is just a little bit easier when you make eight more threes than your opponent, a fact the 76ers proved on Sunday. They strolled past Los Angeles with points to spare, taking the game 121-107.

The 76ers' victory was a true team effort, with many players turning in solid performances. Perhaps the best among them was Tyrese Maxey, who scored 24 points along with six assists.

The Magic typically have all the answers at home, but on Saturday the Kings proved too difficult a challenge. They had just enough and edged the Magic out 109-107. The success was a return to things as normal for the Kings, who in their previous outing suffered a shocking 109-102 upset defeat to the Wizards.

Multiple players turned in solid performances to lead the Kings to victory, but perhaps none more so than De'Aaron Fox, who scored 31 points along with eight rebounds and three steals. The team also got some help courtesy of Domantas Sabonis, who dropped a double-double on 21 points and 14 rebounds.

Philadelphia's victory ended a four-game drought on the road and puts them at 39-32. As for Sacramento, they are on a roll lately: they've won three of their last four contests, which provided a nice bump to their 41-29 record this season.

Monday's match is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: The 76ers haven't given up the ball easily this season, having only averaged 11.1 turnovers per game (they're ranked first in turnovers per game overall). However, it's not like the Kings struggle in that department as they've been averaging only 12.7 turnovers per game. Given these competing strengths, it'll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.
