It’s a Western conference showdown on Saturday night in the Mile High city. The Sacramento Kings make the trip to the Pepsi Center to take on the Denver Nuggets.
The Kings have won four of the last six games played between the two teams. In the last two games however the Nuggets have won both games.
Most people understand that is a rebuild year for the Sacramento Kings, but they still have a lot of good young players that if anything should make it an exciting team to watch.
They come into this game off a loss in their first game of the season, but they still played pretty well all things considered.
They came in as 7.5 underdogs against the Houston Rockets, but when the game ended they had only lost by five, 105-100.
They did a good job of slowing down the pace against a Rockets team that loves to push the pace, and that is what kept them in the game.
The Kings were led by Willie Cauley-Stein who had his first double double of the season. He went for 21 points and ten rebounds.
One of the big issues for the Kings was their bench unit. Outside of De’Aaron Fox the top scorer off the bench was Vince Carter who only had six points.
To win this game they need to get more production out of the bench. They can’t put that much pressure on the starting unit every night, or it’s going to be a long season.
On the other side of this match up is the Denver Nuggets who also come into this game off a loss, and a very disappointing one at that.
They got out to a fast start against the Utah Jazz, but a terrible second half did them in and they ended up losing 106-96.
The Jazz are a tough team to play against because of their defense, but that game was very disappointing. Nikola Jokic, and Jamal Murray combined for only 15 points, and that isn’t going to cut it this year.
To win this game it’s all going to come down to the offensive end. They need to try and push the pace a bit in this game and the starters need to be better offensively.
If this game is played at a faster pace, that really works to the advantage of the Nuggets.
