Saturday, March 20thK the Sacramento Kings will meet the Philadelphia 76ers for the second time this season. In the initial meeting on February 9th, the Bucks won 119-111 extending their current win streak versus the Kings to four-games in a row.
Last season, the squads played twice with the Bucks taking both contests. The Bucks hold the slim edge in all-time victories with 167 wins in the team’s 295 meetings.
The brief run of seven wins in eight games the Kings pulled off in late January – early February is well in the rearview mirror.
That was followed by an 11-game losing streak which the team has thankfully snapped out of.
They’ve returned to playing .500 basketball of late with wins versus the Pistons, Lakers, Rockets, and Wizards offset by losses to Hornes (x2), Blazers, and Hawks.
They are halfway through a six-game road trip which has them facing the Celtics on Friday prior to this game Saturday against the 76ers. A tough back-to-back draw given how well Philly plays at home.
Marvin Bagley might be the unluckiest player in the NBA given his ongoing injury woes. This season it finally looked like he’d be able to stay on the court healthy.
Then Bagley broke his hand and required surgery that will keep him off the hardcourt for a month. Chimezie Metu is also out with a fractured wrist.
So far, the 76ers haven’t been too hardpressed without their big man Joel Embiid who remains out with a bone bruise to his knee after hyperextending it.
Philly was 2-5 without Embiid prior to this injury but have won two of three since he was injured and almost pulled off the win versus the Bucks prior to succumbing in overtime.
Philly has feasted at home this season with only four losses in 22 matches two of which required overtime. The Nuggets, shorthanded Blazers, Cavaliers and Bucks are the only teams to win at Wells Fargo this season.
In the loss to Milwaukee the 76ers were their own worst enemy. They built a 45-31 half time lead but then allowed Milwaukee to tie the match and send it to overtime.
Seven 76ers scored in double-figure but none broke 20 points. Ben Simmons delivered a triple-double of 13 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists, along with two blocks as well as two steals but also had seven turnovers.
Tobias Harris led the scoring with 19 points while Dwight Howard delivered a double-double of 13 points and 15 rebounds.
Danny Green scored 18 (all on 3-pointers), while Shake Milton (15), Furkan Korkmaz (13), and Curry (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Seth Curry left the match Wednesday after spraining his ankle and is listed as day-to-day while Embiid will be out until month-end at a minimum.

Free Sacramento Kings vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
Although two of the four losses at home by the 76ers might be described as trap games it’s likely Doc Rivers has his troops dialed in especially with Embiid out.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: 76ers ATS
Still, this Kings squad is young so in spite of playing the back-to-back De’Aaron Fox and co. have blistering speed and sharpshooters so they’ll have to ward off taking Sacramento for granted.
