Things have been already out of hand for the Knicks, but now the Kings are seeing their playoff hopes slipping away.
The two will meet with the Kings in almost desperation mode as they need wins and need them to come quickly.
Sacramento went through a patch in the middle of January where they won 5 in a row and DeMarcus Cousins was playing at an unreal level.
Cousins is still playing at an unreal level, but its everyone else who has tapered off. Sacramento now sits in 11th in the West, 7.5 games out of a playoff spot. At this point, the Kings not only have to win games like this, but they also have to steal some of the ones coming up.
Defense will certainly be a key for the Kings. They are among the worst in the NBA as they allow nearly 110 points per game. That was showcased in the loss to Detroit last time out as they allowed 115 points.
The road has also not been kind to Sacramento as they are just 12-22 SU. The defense even gets worse by a full point when the Kings play away from home.
The Knicks can play the spoiler role down the stretch of this season, but that certainly wasn’t the most ideal situation for them this year.
New York has been a mess all season long and things don’t figure to be easy here as they will be in Washington on Saturday before returning home here to play the Kings.
New York has leaned on Carmelo Anthony and F Kristaps Porzingis, their top draft pick, but lately the rookie has certainly hit some growing pains. Porzingis shot 1 of 11 from the field and has shot 30% over the past 6 games.
At home this year the Knicks have played a little better as they are 16-18 with an identical 16-18 ATS record.

Free Sacramento Kings vs. NY Knicks NBA Prediction:
The key for New York will be slowing down Cousins.
With the exception of him, this Kings team really lacks offensive firepower.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Kings ATS.
With this being a back to back for New York, fatigue plays a role here as Cousins wears them down in a close game that the Kings pull out.
