Kudos to the Kings for not buckling to the pressure of the copious segments by national pundits mostly focusing on the revamped Suns, Clippers, and Lakers with the occasional hat tip to the Nuggets.
The two teams the analysts seemed to forget completely were the Kings and the Grizzlies.
Sure they’re young squads but after the weekend when the Kings took down the Clippers and dropped 176 points on them, it’s impossible to ignore them. Sacramento backed it up with another victory Sunday to retain a 3.0 game lead over the Suns.
Presently, offensively, the Kings are among the very best in the association with the highest scoring output averaging 120.7 points per game. Similarly, they perform well in the proficiency areas registering 49.7% from the field and 36.8% from deep ranking third and ninth overall.
Sacramento ranks 25th in opponent scoring allowing 118.1 points per game while foes shoot 49.4% from the field and 37.4% from the perimeter both ranking 29th.
To summarize the injury report…
- De’Aaron Fox PG (questionable – left wrist soreness)
The timing of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s injury wasn’t great given the Thunder were hoping to get into the play-in tournament. They’ve battled in both matches since returning from the break but looked like they might suddenly flip the switch to tanking.
However, with news out of LA that LeBron James will miss extended time and knowing Zion Williamson’s hamstring injury is taking longer to heal than expected it might be the shot in the arm the club needs to reinvest in winning.
Offensively, the Thunder scores 117.8 points per game ranking fourth while shooting 46.9% from the field and 36.3% from deep ranking 18th and 13th respectively.
Meanwhile, OKC limits opponents to 116.6 points per game (20th) with them shooting 47.0% from the field and 35.8% from deep ranking 12th and 14th 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:
If Fox can’t go on Tuesday that opens the door for OKC to take advantage of the opportunity. Sacramento won’t play again until the weekend when they have a tough back-to-back versus the Clippers and Wolves — teams chasing them in the standings.
Still, the Thunder aren’t the typical low-tier team that can be viewed as an easy win so given the Kings will get a couple of days to rest before hosting the Clippers it won’t be surprising if Fox plays.
His presence has me up in the air on this game because I think OKC can steal the victory if Fox is out but if De’Aaron plays then I like the Kings to cover. So check the late injury report before placing your bet and in the interim, I’ll take the points (assuming Fox is out)
