This is a Western Conference match up between 2 teams that will not make the playoffs. OK, well the Kings have not been eliminated, but they need to win out and get a lot of help to make the post-season.
In Denver’s last game they were in the Big Easy and lost to the Pelicans 101-95.
The Nuggets have lost 3 of their last 4 games and they can look forward to another high draft pick. Their leading scorer is out for the season and their D has struggled the whole season.
At least they will be facing a Sactown defense that ranks dead last in the league in opponents’ points allowed.
While the Kings rank dead last in the league in opponents’ points allowed they do have a solid offense ranking 3rd in ppg.
Kings’ leading rebounder DeMarcus Cousins will be back for this game after missing the last game due to a 1-game suspension for picking up his 16th technical foul of the season.
The Kings have 6 players that are averaging in double figures and the Nuggets have to keep Cousins and Rudy Gay (17 ppg) from having big games.
The Kings are 12-games under .500 on the road this season (13-25) and they have lost 3 straight away from Sacramento.
The Kings have won both match ups with the Nuggets this season one in Sacramento and one in Denver.
The Nuggets rank 17th in the league in scoring and 22nd in opponents’ points per game.
Even though they were the betting favorite on their road in their last game against a shorthanded Pelicans squad the Nuggets were outscored by 7 points in the 4th quarter and for the game only shot 43.4% from the floor.
With Danilo Gallinari out for the season with an ankle injury the scoring has to come from the FW duo of Will Barton and Kenneth Faried, who really struggled in the Nuggets’ last game, and G Emmanuel Mudiay.
The Nuggets have young talent, but they have trouble playing as a team all season, especially with their injuries.
Neither Denver centers Jusuf Nurkic or Nikola Jokic are averaging in double figures on the season and while their offense is not of great importance in this game their D facing Cousins will be.
In the 2 games that the Kings have beaten the Nuggets this season Cousins went for 37 points and 39 points respectively.
This season the Nuggets are 17-20 at home and they had won 5 straight in their house before a L in their last home game.
