Sacramento wore down a shorthanded Cleveland team on Friday night and ended up winning going away, 129–110. DeAaron Fox had another 30-10 game with thirty points and twelve assists. Buddy Hield scored twenty-four points and hit some key shots in the second half for the 13–11 Kings.
Those two continued to lead the scoring in the first unit while Marvin Bagley and Bogdan Bogdanovic continued to do the same in the second. They combined for thirty-two in about fifty minutes off the bench.
Sacramento has won three games in a row, including the last two on the road. The streak started with a one-point win over Indiana out in California last week. The Kings are now halfway through their current four-game road trip, which finished in Chicago on Monday night.
Bagley missed Sacramento’s win over Indiana at the Smoothie King Center but Troy Williams stepped up to score twelve unexpected points with the second team. As is the case whenever a team takes on the Pacers, defense and discipline will be key points for the Kings.
The Pacers played that game without Victor Oladipo. They have played the last nine games without Oladipo, who hurt his knee in a game in mid-November against the Hawks.
Oladipo played just five minutes in that game, which the Pacers won. They are 6–4 in the ten games that have concluded since the injury occurred, including, most recently, a twenty-two-point road win over Orlando last night.
The Pacers’ second unit, including Cory Joseph, TJ Leaf, Kyle O’Quinn, Doug McDermott and Aaron Holiday scored just short of fifty points. Bojan Bogdanovic led the team with twenty-six and his usual fantastic defense in the starting five.
Indiana’s defense as a team was on point. Orlando has remained warm since a late burst last month and to hold the Magic to just ninety in Orlando is something to be proud of.
Sixth-Man Domantas Sabonis didn’t play in Orlando because of food poisoning. He will probably be back for this game, though it can take more than a day to get over the stomach illness. If he does play, it will be a great lift to Indiana because he got the first leg of the back-to-back off.

Free Sacramento Kings vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction: Pacers at home for the win and cover.
I’m fading Sacramento in this spot. The Kings are just going to breeze through this four-game trip, even if it is light on opponent firepower. Assuming Sabonis is back, take the Pacers to cover by a couple points.
