On FrIday, January 22nd, Inter-Conference opponents will meet as the New York Knicks and Sacramento Kings will face off for the first time in the shortened 2020-2021 regular season.
New York Knicks
New York will be looking to grab a third straight win Friday night after defeating the Magic in a 91-84 home win on Monday. Second year player RJ Barrett led the team with 22 points, 10 rebounds and four assists, Julius Randle played another great game adding 21 points with 17 rebounds while Reggie Bullock chipped in with 13 points.
The Knicks have shown some promise early in the year under first year coach Tom Thibodeau as they sit in the 7th spot in the Eastern Conference. Their game starts and ends on the defensive side of the court as they have only surrendered 102.7 points per game which ranks 1st in the league. In the teams last three matchups they’ve managed to only allow 88.3 points per which is the best by a wide margin, the next closest team is the LA Clippers with 97.3.

Sacramento has not played good basketball as they continue to try to break through to prominence. They sit in the 13th spot in the Western Conference at 5-10 and have been streaky all season. They began the year at 4-4 which included starting 3-1 then going 1-3 and have quickly fell off going 1-6 in their last 7. They will be hoping to avoid a fifth straight defeat after getting routed by the Clippers in a 115-96 road loss on Wednesday.
The Kings are led again by bright franchise star De’Aaron Fox who leads the way with 20.8 ppg, 5.9 apg, and 1.5 spg. (All Kings bests) He is followed in production by veteran Harrison Barnes and shooter Buddy Hield.
There continues to be tension surrounding the team as former #2 overall pick Marvin Bagley continues to hear trade rumors regarding his future with the team started by his own father who has been vocal about getting his son to a different team via twitter. Recently PG De’Aaron Fox’s dad felt the need to step in as well agreeing with the sentiment that Marvin needs to go. The bitterness off the court has not helped the chemistry on the court as the Kings continue to stack up losses and tumble down the standings.

Free New York Knicks vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
The Knicks have played competitive basketball under new coach Tom Thibodeau and have been in surprisingly good form lately including gritty win over the Magic in their last outing which will carry them into this matchup with the Kings. Sacramento has continued to struggle losing 9 of their last 11 games and allowed an average of 128.3 points during their current four-game skid which is worst in the NBA. It’s hard to bet on the Knicks given their unremarkable track record in the past but its safer to grab points than give them in this one especially considering how dominant New York has played defensively late. I’ll take the Knicks to escape with the upset in this one.
