Wednesday December 27th finds the Cleveland Cavaliers travelling to play the Sacramento Kings. The Cavaliers are fresh off a Christmas Day loss to the Golden State Warriors.
The Kings enter the day on three full days rest after their loss to the Spurs. This is the second meeting between the squads this season. Although the Cavaliers won the first game 101-95 the Kings gave Cleveland a test for most of the match.
Last season, the squads played the typical East-West two game series resulted in each squad winning on the other’s court. The Cavaliers hold the all-time record having bested the Kings 59 of their 116 matches.
On a weekly basis the Cleveland Cavaliers are noted as having endured one of the easiest schedules. to this point in the season.
Part of the reason for this ranking is the Kings are Cleveland’s fifth opposite coast and only the ninth game they’ve played against a west coast team. In contrast the Raptors will play their 14th game on the opposite coast tonight and 17th total.
LeBron James continues to post MVP type numbers leading the Cavaliers with averages of 28.1 points, 9.1 assists, 56.5% field goal percentage, 1.4 steals and 1.1 blocks.
The injury report for the Cavaliers includes Iman Shumpert (knee), Derrick Rose (ankle) and Isaiah Thomas (hip). All three will be missing for the game versus Sacramento, but Thomas is nearing a return in the New Year.
Despite being a lottery team the Kings don’t roll over in games. The greatest oddity of the Kings is they have issues scoring, but they boast the second best perimeter efficiency in the NBA.
The problem is the Kings take the fewest three point shots.
Sacramento has caught a few of the upper echelon teams napping and with vets Zach Randolph, Vince Carter and George Hill mentoring them they’ve garnered a few unexpected wins in the process.
Vince Carter is expected to play despite a rib strain. Rookies De’Aaron Fox (quad injury) and Harry Giles (knees) are both expected to miss the contest. The latter hasn’t played this season and continues to rehab with hopes of making it to the court sometime in February.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
Although the Cavaliers got caught by lottery teams early in the season, they’ve since feasted on low end squads.
LeBron James won’t be happy his team lost an opportunity to gain ground on the Celtics with the loss Christmas Day, so expect a charged up Cavaliers squad. Additionally, the Kings are playing a back-to-back, so will have the more weary team.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Cavaliers -9.5
This one could get ugly if the King has his way. Watch for vets Zach Randolph and Vince Carter to post good games, perhaps as an audition for later in the season should they become available via waivers.
