Two teams who need to turn things around in a hurry will meet up this Thursday when the Miami Heat head cross country to play against the Sacramento Kings at Golden 1 Center in California.
The Miami Heat need a game like this, a their last 2 games have been against brutal competition in the Clippers and Jazz and it goes without saying that the Heat will fair far better against a team like Sacramento.
The Heat were a bit unfortunate in their last game against the Clippers, though, as they lost by only 7 points and shot only 22.3 % from three so just a mediocre shooting day from beyond the arc would have seen the Miami Heat be victorious in that contest.
Jimmy Butler certainly showed up for that contest and in general has been good this year when healthy as he dropper a triple-double on the Clippers with a final stat-line of 30/10/10 in that losing effort.
Look out for Tyler Herro in this one, as I expect this one to be an up-tempo type of contest which should suit the young shooting guard who is looking better and better as this season goes on, as he continues to look to get back to his level of play he had in the bubble.
On the other side of things the Kings are also building themselves quite the losing streak as their last loss made it 4 losses in a row.
This Kings defense had no answer for the Nets superstars last time out allowing Kyrie to drop 40 and for Harden to record a solid triple-double. Hassan Whiteside was a big positive off the bench against the Nets recording 26 points and 16 rebounds in just 26 minutes, but don’t look for a repeat of that performance here against the Heat who play much better interior defense than the Nets do.
As is usual with the Sacramento Kings the guy to talk about is De’Aron Fox who continues to get better leading this Kings team with 23.2 points per game as well as chipping in with peripheral stats like assists and rebounds as well.
Fox is having a solid year, but this will be a very tough test against a Miami team who defends significantly better than the Nets team they just faced, so the Kings will need to be strong on both ends of the court.
Free Miami Heat vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
The Miami Heat are better than the Sacramento Kings and this line seems fair enough to go with the Heat against the spread. The Heat’s defense is the biggest factor for me here, as I don’t see the Kings being able to score at will and this Kings team won’t be able to match that in terms of their own defense.
The Miami Heat also have the ability to get going from beyond the arc which has been a sore point for the Kings this year, as I can see guys like Butler, Robinson and Herro having solid shooting days against this generous Kings defense.
