The Sacramento Kings are going through one of the toughest portions of their schedule early this season, and with the San Antonio Spurs coming to down, the team needs DeMarcus Cousins to get back on the floor.
The Kings have had a lot of trouble with the Spurs, dropping five in a row and 24 of the last 26 meetings.
The team has lost four in a row without Cousins, who has been nursing a strained right Achilles. On the season, Cousins is averaging 22.0 points and 11.0 rebounds.
San Antonio Spurs:
The Spurs make the trip out to Sacramento coming off a season-high 55.6-percent shooting effort in a 114-94 win over the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday.
Kawhi Leonard paced the squad with 23 points, and Patty Mills chipped in 15 off the bench. As a team, the Spurs dished out a season-high 35 assists.
Former Spurs guard Marco Belinelli, who’s now playing with the Kings, will face off with his former team for the first time since making the move.
Belinelli poured in a season-high 22 points on Saturday.
The Kings are playing their third game of a six-game home stand at Sleep Train Arena, and this is the contest DeMarcus Cousins has targeted for his return.
His absence has had a major impact on Rudy Gay, who shot 37.1 percent in the four games Cousins has missed, compared with 45.1 percent in the three games Cousins was on the floor.
The competition on this home stand has been tough on Sacramento, which lost 116-110 to the Houston Rockets and then 103-94 to the Golden State Warriors the next night.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Kings are heading in the right direction under George Karl, and while their record may not reflect that just yet, the return of Cousins figures to help improve the team’s ability to be competitive on a nightly basis.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Spurs -7.5
While the team is trending upwards, the matchup with the Spurs is just not a test they’re quite ready to face just yet. San Antonio’s ability to play fundamental basketball is just too much for a Kings squad that likes to play fast and loose.
With the Spurs’ increased depth in the front court, they’ll be an even tougher out for the Kings on this night.
