The Kings definitely had a year to build on as they approach a .500 record as the 2018/19 regular season winds down. Sacramento doesn’t have their own draft pick this Spring so they might as well win and build momentum towards next season at this point.
The Mavs may come into Thursday’s tilt a bit tired after a tough 8 point loss in Portland on Wednesday. Does Dallas bring a full squad into this matchup, especially against the Kings up-paced offense?
Dallas gave it their all on Wednesday, falling 126-118 to Portland and covering the +10 spread in the process. What they also did in the process was use great load management which gives them a solid shot at the Kings on Thursday.
No Dallas starter logged more than 29 minutes vs. Portland. Luka Doncic (28:50) should be relatively fresh as should Tim Hardaway (23:42) and Jalen Brunson (26:09). Somebody had to play the minutes Wednesday however so will Dallas’ burnt out bench be their downfall in this one?
With the loss to the Trail Blazers the Mavs are now just 1-9 in their last 10. They are the 2nd to worst team in the Western Conference but things actually aren’t as bleak as they look.
Yes the Mavericks have been losing lately, but they’ve been largely competitive. They have a 4 point loss to the Pelicans, a 1 point defeat in Denver, a 7 point loss to the Spurs and another 1 point defeat to the Rockets in the last 11 days alone. Are the Kings -8.5 points better than Dallas here?
The Kings looked like world beaters for 3 quarters in their last game. Then D’Angelo Russell happened, dropping 27 points in the 4th quarter as the Nets outscored Sacramento 45-18 in the final stanza to get the 123-121 win. Does that loss stick with the Kings (or their fans) coming into Thursday’s game?
Sacramento is going to fall short of the postseason as they now sit 7GB from the Western Conference 8 seed with just 12 games to go. A 13-21 road record is what did in the Kings this year but they are at the Golden 1 Center Thursday where they are 21-15 on the season.
At the very least, the Kings rookie is fresh compared to Luka Doncic. That’s Marvin Bagley III who is returning from a knee injury but has still been dominant in limited minutes. Bagley had 28 points in 25 minutes Tuesday and gives Sacramento a solid front court option for the future as their back court also looks like superstars in the making.
De’Aaron Fox went for 27 vs. the Nets although his defense was a bit suspect late in allowing Russell to go off. Buddy Hield was held to 8 points, his third straight game being limited to 16 points or less. Both of those players will need to be on for Sacramento to cover the number in this one.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
Dallas is in a back-to-back, but their usage Wednesday vs. Portland was very minimal. The teams have met up once this season with the Kings getting a 120-113 win in Dallas in mid-December.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Mavericks +8.5
Dallas didn’t expend a lot of energy vs. Portland and should be OK in the back-to-back. Sacramento’s defense had an absolute meltdown on Tuesday and that’s going to stick with them.
