Both Atlanta and Sacramento will be playing in their 2nd leg of a back to back on Thursday as they both carry modest two game winning streaks into their Wednesday matchups.
Atlanta will be in Portland Wednesday and the Kings will be inside the Staples Center to take on the Lakers.
Sacramento has won 2 straight, both on the road and will finish their 3 game road swing in Los Angeles. Atlanta’s pair of wins came both at home and will now hit the road for 4 straight.
While it’s tough to say Atlanta is turning a corner for the better with just a 2 game winning streak, they have at least looked a lot better as of late.
Atlanta has defeated Brooklyn and Orlando in back to back games and will now set their sights on a 4 game road swing that starts in Portland and ends in Denver on 1/25. Between these two they’ll encounter the Kings here and then Phoenix on Saturday.
Atlanta hasn’t been as good on the road this season as they were last, as they sit 10-10 SU thus far. They’ve dropped 2 straight away from home as they fell to Charlotte and Milwaukee in their last 2.
The Hawks have jumped into the 4th spot in the East and are currently tied for 3rd with the Bulls.
The Kings are right there in that log jam in the bottom of the Western Conference as they sit in 10th place just .5 game behind 8th seeded Utah.
The Kings will finish off their 3 game road trip with their 2nd straight game inside the Staples Center before coming home for this one against the Hawks. The Kings have gone 2-0 on this road trip and had an impressive win last time out against the Clippers.
Sacramento ended the Clippers 10 game winning streak behind DeMarcus Cousins and his 19 point, 13 rebound day. Cousins has been the back bone to this Kings team as he has averaged 25.9 points per game to go along with 11.1 rebounds.
This one against the Hawks will start a 3 game home-stand for the Kings that will also feature Indiana (Saturday) and Charlotte (Monday).

Free NBA Prediction:
The Kings only go when DeMarcus Cousins goes. And frankly, he’s been going lately. The Kings have gotten themselves back into the Western Conference and will get a chance to not only make it 3 in a row with a win over Los Angeles, but then will come home for 3.
The Hawks however have dominated this head to head series. Atlanta is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Sacramento and have gone 14-3 ATS in the last 17 meetings. Expect Atlanta to have the upper hand here as this team is finally coming around.
