Saturday, December 11th the Sacramento Kings face the Cleveland Cavaliers for the first meeting between the clubs in the 2021-22 season.
Both teams are playing in a back-to-back set with the Cavaliers pounding the Wolves 123-106 and the Kings losing a 123-124 nailbiter to the Hornets on Friday.
Since Alvin Gentry has assumed the interim coaching role the Kings have played better. His record is above .500 with five wins and four losses. What hasn’t changed is the offense remains the focus which isn’t surprising given that’s the area of the game where Gentry shines.
Moving forward if Gentry wants to change that interim tag to official he’ll need to hire the right assistants to teach defensive schemes with the goal of seeing palpable effects on the hardwood.
On Friday, Gentry’s charges battled but lost and what made the defeat more sour is it was in De’Aaron Fox’s hands to win but he missed two critical free throws at game end
Oddly, Fox was eight for eight at the charity stripe prior to that point in the match so for him to miss both was head-scratching. Fox led his team with 31 points, plus five assists, two rebounds, and four steals.
Two players getting much more playing time under Gentry also had big games with Terence Davis registering 19 points, eight rebounds, an assist, three steals, and a block while Marvin Bagley collected a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds plus two assists, and a block.
Tyrese Haliburton was the other double-figure scorer with 15 points.
Richaun Holmes missed the match after another injury to the same eye he hurt prior and is questionable to play Saturday.
it was a big night for the 2021 rookie class as Scottie Barnes registered a double-double of 12 points and 15 rebounds (plus three assists, two steals, two blocks) and James Bouknight scored a career-best 24 points hitting six 3-pointers.
The Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month Evan Mobley didn’t match the above stat performances but did something he’s done all season with is defend and make his club better when he’s on the court.
Mobley collected 11 points, eight rebounds, and two blocks, and most importantly the win. Seven Cavaliers scored in double-figures with a trio of Cavs registering double-doubles.
Specifically, Jarrett Allen (21 points, 10 rebounds, two blocks), Darius Garland (12 points, 12 assists), and Kevin Love (18 points, 13 rebounds, four assists) were the trio.
Love is getting more minutes lately which makes me wonder if he’s reingratiated himself with the organization or is being showcased in order to solicit a trade.
Collin Sexton (knee) is gone for the remainder of the season.

Free Sacramento Kings vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction
My inclination is to pick the over because the Kings are predominantly an offensive squad and both teams have gone over in 10 out of their last 13 cumulative contests.
While the Cavaliers could just as easily blow out the Kings 217 points is a reasonable tally to hit even if JB Bickerstaff’s charges limit the Kings’ offense.
