The Sacramento Kings hope to avoid an interconference season sweep when they visit the Milwaukee Bucks Saturday evening.
When these teams met Nov 28, Milwaukee earned a lopsided 112-87 victory as Giannis Antetokounmpo added 32 points on just 16 shot attempts. Overall, the Bucks shot 59% to overcome 13 missed free-throws while holding Sacramento to 40/29% shooting on its home floor.
Having won three of four, Milwaukee also enjoys two days of rest before Saturday’s encounter, while Sacramento competes Friday night vs. the Chicago Bulls.
The Bucks list both Jabari Parker (knee) and Matthew Dellavedova (knee) as out vs. Sacramento. The Kings report no current injuries.
Following a monumental upset of Golden State, Sacramento’s brief high was cut short Nov 28 by Milwaukee. Among the league’s worst teams, nonetheless, Dave Joerger’s men have split their last four contests and could earn a seventh win of the season tonight vs. Chicago before traveling to Milwaukee.
Kings guard Buddy Hield and pivot Wille-Cauley Stein have overcome rough patches while sparking Sacramento’s mini-rise from bottom-tier status.
Over the duo’s past four games, Hield has become a ppm machine, while averaging 15 points in 20 mpg; comparatively, Cauley-Stein has averaged 16 points and 7 rebounds on 62% shooting.
Since Nov 22, the Kings have climbed from either last or almost last in Offensive and Defensive rating to place 20th and 18th in each category respectively.
Although, with a stinging home defeat vs. Milwaukee in recent memory, and jet-lagged legs from a previous night’s game, Saturday’s season-series finale at the Bradley Center should constitute a test of endurance for the Kings.
Milwaukee has overcome a subpar beginning to win seven of its last ten contests, and two straight. Throughout this run, the Bucks’ defense has stifled opponents while ranking fourth in DefRtg. Further, the trio of Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Eric Bledsoe has become a viable two-way threat for opposing perimeter units.
Milwaukee’s trade of Greg Monroe for Bledsoe has placed the Bucks ahead of the competitive curve in a lagging eastern conference.
As such, Milwaukee enjoys heavy favorite-status for Saturday’s meeting with Sacramento.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Bucks are 7-3 SU in their last 10 contests.
- Milwaukee is 1-0 SU head-to-head this season vs. Sacramento.
- Sacramento is 2-9 SU in road games this season
Free Sacramento Kings vs.Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
At 6-15, and with a smattering of rookies and expiring veterans, Sacramento is little more than a trap-game worry for opponents this season. Though, with wins over Philadelphia, Portland, Oklahoma City, and Golden State, the Kings’ upset potential must be recognized.
Even so, the Bucks have too much momentum and rest, to be less than an 85% favorite vs. Sacramento.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bucks -11.5
Expect Giannis and company to turn the Kings over often and capitalize with timely offense which the NBA’s 28th-ranked defense will struggle to contain. Young superstar Antetokounmpo could have a monster outing vs. Sacramento.
