Saturday, December 26 finds the Phoenix Suns vs. Sacramento Kings playing in a Boxing Day match in the front end of a back-to-back set both being played in Sacramento.
The Suns hold the all-time record between the clubs with 137 wins in 234 meetings. Last season the clubs played four times splitting the contests with two wins each.
It’s been a decade since the Suns reached the playoffs and they hope to change their fortune this season.
Three starters and three bench players for the Suns scored in double-figures demonstrating their depth. Devin Booker led the way with 22 points but his solid showing was tempered by eight turnovers.
Mikal Bridges continued to showcase his talent as he pitched in 18 points, seven rebounds, two blocks, and connected on four of his seven 3-pointers.
Deandre Ayton scored 13 points adding eight rebounds, an assist, steal, and two blocks, and looks to have already developed a connection with veteran Chris Paul.
The latter had a relatively quiet night but took over late with the Mavericks hot on their heels. He grabbed a critical rebound, drained the shot that put them ahead for good, and was demonstratively calming on the court in clutch time.
Cameron Johnson scored 15 while Cameron Payne and Langston Galloway added 11 each.
Frank Kaminsky (illness), Abdel Nader (concussion). and Dario Saric (quad) are all questionable for Saturday.
The Kings’ opening night win was dramatic and sent a message to the association this team is healthy and ready to compete for one of those Western playoff berths.
With the first overtime drawing to a close, the Nuggets inbounded the ball to Nikola Jokic and Harrison Barnes jumped on the play forcing a turnover that led to a breakaway.
Will Barton chased down Barnes blocking his shot but Buddy Hield who trailed the play was able to tap the ball in just before time expired.
Seven Kings scored in double-figures with three collecting 20 plus points. Hield led the way with 22 including five 3-pointers. De’Aaron Fox registered 21 points, four rebounds, seven assists, a steal, and a block.
Harrison Barnes was arguably the best King producing 21 points, nine rebounds, five assists, and two steals.
Cory Joseph (15), Marvin Bagley (13), rookie Tyrese Haliburton (12), and Nemanja Bjelica (10) were the other double-digit contributors.
DaQuan Jeffries and Jabari Parker both missed Wednesday with back ailments and remain questionable.

Free Phoenix Suns vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
If possible, Phoenix looks even stronger than they did in the bubble perhaps due to the veteran leadership of Paul. Likewise, the Kings are hinting at the young upstarts everyone thought they could be back when Fox was first drafted.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Suns ATS
Ultimately, the Suns are the deeper club with a more defined two-way system and CP3 is the calming force they’ve needed to take the next step.
The fact they held the offensively gifted Mavericks to 102 points speaks to their improved defensive intensity which they need to stop the speedy Kings.
