Thursday November 1 finds the Sacramento Kings tipping off versus the Atlanta Hawks in the third week of play in the 2018-19 regular season. This match features a battle of exciting young point guards and the Association’s two fastest squads.
Last season the teams split the season series. The Hawks hold the all-time record having bested the Kings in 159 of their 314 matches.
The three longest win streaks in the Association belong to the unbeaten Bucks (7-0), the championship Warriors on a five game streak and the surprising Kings who’ve won four in a row. They’ll look to make it five in a row when they face the Hawks.
The four teams the Kings beat to run the streak are the Grizzlies, Wizards, Heat and Magic. Granted most of their opponents are likely headed to the lottery, but no team can afford to sleep on the Kings.
Sacramento’s success begins and ends with the pace they are running and sophomore point guard De’Aaron Fox who keeps the tempo constant. Fox summons visions of a taller, Westbrook with his blazing speed and an exciting untapped ceiling. His season stats are 17.5 points, 6.9 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.5 steals.
The Kings run the leagues second fastest pace (107.19) bested only by their Thursday opponent.
Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) will miss the match and is expected back in the lineup in early November.
The Hawks are undoubtedly headed for the lottery, but that doesn’t stop them from being an entertaining team to watch. Rookie Trae Young is averaging 19.1 points, 6.6 assists and spearheads the fastest paced team in the NBA
With Collins return in November Atlanta should become a more difficult out, but for now they’ll learn from the losses with a view to figuring out which roster spots to fill with potentially three first round and three second round picks coming this June.
Alex Poythress has missed three games with a knee sprain but expected to suit up Thursday. Daniel Hamilton (shoulder), John Collins (ankle) and Justin Anderson (shin)are all out.

Although both squads feature top point guard talents Fox’ length could be a major issue for Young. Still, this should be an entertaining game and has potential to be an extremely high scoring match if the squads fall into a your turn, my turn night.
