Saturday, January 19th brings you an NBA matchup as the Sacramento Kings head east to take on the Detroit Pistons live from the Little Caesars Arena. Sacramento won the last meeting between these two teams 112-102, just nine days ago. We will see if that magic can continue on the road this time.
The Kings lost their last game on Thursday at Charlotte 114-95, while the Pistons beat Miami on Friday in a close one, 98-93. Detroit will be playing the second game of a back to back here, so those tired legs may come into play for the Pistons.
The Kings have won three out of their last five games, with both losses coming to sub .500 teams Phoenix and Charlotte. As it stands right now, Sacramento is 1.5 games out of the Western Conference playoffs, as they sit in 10th place, a game behind Los Angeles Clippers, who sit only a half game behind the Lakers for the 8th and final playoff spot.
Over their last five games the Kings have averaged 107.4 points a game, which is nearly 7 points lower than their overall season average of 114.22 points per game. On the bright side though, they have given up an average of 107 points per game over their last five, which is over 8 points lower than their season average of 115.38 points against per game.
SG Buddy Hield had a game high 24 points in the Kings loss to the Hornets on Thursday night. C Willie Cauley-Stein led the team with 11 rebounds. SG Bogdan Bogdanovic led all Sacramento bench players in scoring with 17 points in 27 minutes in a game where only four Kings players scored in double digits.
Injury Report: The Kings are reporting no injuries at this time for Saturday night’s game.
Detroit too comes into this game winners of three out of their last five games as they creep up on that .500 plateau. They currently are on the outside looking in on the playoff picture, but they are definitely knocking on the door as they sit only one game behind Charlotte who currently hold the 8th and final playoff spot.
Over their last five games the Pistons scoring has been down by a little over two points per game at 104.6 points per game, as opposed to their overall season average of 106.73 points per game. And, same as Sacramento, their defense over their past five has been slightly better, nearly 5 points per game at 104.8, instead of their season average of 109.20 points against per game.
PF Blake Griffin led all scorers in Friday night’s win over Miami en route to a double-double with 32 points and 11 rebounds. SG Reggie Bullock had 19 points in a starters role, but SG Luke Kennard really shined as he poured in 22 points in 34 minutes off the bench. All in all, the Pistons had four players score in double digits.
Injury Report: PG Ish Smith, SG Khyri Thomas, Power Forwards Jon Leuer and Henry Ellenson as well as C Andre Drummond, are all listed as “questionable” for Saturday’s game.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Kings are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games

- Over Under is 3-7 in team’s last 10 head to head matchups
Free Sacramento Kings vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
The Piston’s are pretty banged up at the moment, but they could be getting some much needed help in the return of Andre Drummond on Saturday night. If he plays, expect him to be the difference maker in this game.
As the Kings have been taking it pretty easy with their star rookie Marvin Bagley III because of all of his injury problems this year, this could actually be the game that they let him loose and tangle with Blake Griffin for a bit. Last time these two played, Bagley scored 10 and grabbed 7 boards in 20 minutes, just think of what he could do in 30 plus.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Kings -1
Make sure you check the status of Drummond before you place any money on this game. If he plays, go with Detroit, if he sits again your money has to go with the Kings.
