If you love offense then the Kings should be at the top of your League Pass list. The display Sacramento and the LA Clippers put on Friday wasn’t just the biggest burst this season it was the second-highest cumulative points scored in NBA history.
Two Kings scored 40 points with De’Aaron Fox dropping 42 and Malik Monk offering 45 points as a reserve. Factor in the Kings delivered that performance with Domantas Sabonis in foul trouble all night playing only 31 minutes.
On the positive side, offensively, the Kings are among the very best in the association with the highest scoring output averaging 120.6 points per game. Similarly, they perform well in the proficiency areas registering 49.7% from the field and 36.7% from deep ranking third and ninth overall.
Sacramento ranks 26th in opponent scoring allowing 118.1 points per game while foes shoot 49.4% from the field and 37.3% from the perimeter ranking 29th and 28th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- KZ Okpala, SF (questionable -not with team)
Despite star Shai Gilgeous-Alexander being sidelined with both ankle and abdominal injuries the young Thunder held their own against the Suns and if the refs had given them a fair whistle might’ve pulled off the upset.
Isaiah Joe remains the best under-the-radar signing of the offseason as he continues to be lights out from deep hitting half of his long ball attempts (6-12) en route to a career-best 28 points.
OKC limits opponents to 116.4 points per game (20th) with them shooting 46.9% from the field and 35.6% from deep ranking 10th and 12th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, G (OUT right ankle soreness/abdominal strain)
- Aleksej Pokusevski SF (OUT indefinitely, leg)
- Chet Holmgren, PF (OUT for season, foot)

Free Sacramento Kings vs. OKC Thunder NBA Prediction:
While it would seem like this is an easy win for the Kings with SGA out, Sacramento can’t afford to sleep on this scrappy OKC team. Josh Giddey needs to rebound from a poor offensive night but look for Joe to have another high-scoring night.
It’s a pivotal game in the grand scheme of things for the Thunder as they’ve said they’re invested in making the play-in but if they keep dropping games it’ll be easy to pivot to stretch-run tanking.
