The Sacramento Kings are coming of a loss to the lowly Orlando Magic (final score 102-94.) While the Milwaukee Bucks are looking to make it three in a row, after coming of lop-sided win over the Indiana Pacers.
But now both teams hope to put their last game in the past as they look to pull out the win in this next outing.
The Sacramento Kings are coming of their third loss in a row, after coming up short against the Orlando Magic in their last game.
Orlando’s defense set the tone early, holding Sacramento to only 94 points. An because of that the team wasn’t able to recover, coming up on the losing end in this one.
Sacramento cannot allow that to happen next game with the Milwaukee Bucks. Rudy Gay wasn’t able to get going much last match, scoring 16 points on 6-13 shooting from the field. That’s just not going to cut it if the teams hoping on winning more games this year.
The Sacramento Kings don’t have a consistent second scoring option behind Demarcus Cousins. And that has really continued to hurt the team in the closing minutes of games, as opponents choose to double him forcing others to make plays.
An unfortunately, they just haven’t been able to make plays when he gets them the ball.
That’s why Rudy Gay, Ty Lawson and Arron Afflalo are going to be really important in this matchup, because Demarcus is going to need some help from one of them in this game.
Through their first six outings Sacramento has gone to Demarcus almost every possession when the game is on the line in it’s closing minutes. Sometimes it’s worked, but for the most part it hasn’t as teams continue forcing the ball out of his hands.
Meaning someone else has got to make plays at the end of this game if they’re to come out with the win.
The Milwaukee Bucks are on a two game winning streak after coming away victors in their last outing against the Indiana Pacers (final score 125-107.) Indiana just couldn’t contain Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker, and they both of them went off because of it.
Jabari scored 27 points, while shooting a red hot 11-17 from the field. And Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 27 points and dished out 9 assists, on 11-18 shooting from the field.
Their excellent play was a key contributor in getting them the win over a tough Indiana Pacers team.
But now they’re going up against a weaker defensive unit in the Sacramento Kings. So they’ve got to take advantage of that in this matchup, because Sacramento is not going to be able to contain the Bucks offensive players.
Milwaukee also has a deeper second unit, with Greg Monroe coming of their bench. An the Sacramento Kings on the other hand are totally lacking in the depth department.
I mean this team just doesn’t get much offense outside of Demarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay.
Because of that, the Kings are going to trouble keeping up once their second unit comes in to play. With the Bucks stacked reserves, they’ve got to pile on the points once Sacramento’s’ starters leave the game.
Ben Maclemore is one of the lone scoring options off of the Kings bench, meaning Greg Monroe has got to feast on Sacramento’s second unit, in order to help the Bucks pull out the win.

Free Sacramento Kings vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
Sacramento seems to have trouble scoring when Demarcus Cousins or Rudy Gay aren’t dropping 30 points apiece. So because of that the Milwaukee Bucks look to be the best bet in coming away winners in this outing. The starting units for both teams will keep the game close, but the Bucks reserves will help them pull away with the win.
