The Kings and the Suns open their season in the desert where Phoenix is the slight underdog.
The Suns had the 2nd worst record in the Western Conference last season and while they did not make any big off-season splashes they have some young talent.
The Kings finished 10th in the West last season and they are hoping they will get production and not drama from star C DeMarcus Cousins.
The Kings have won 5 of their last 6 games facing the Suns and they have won 5 of their last 7 games facing them in Phoenix.
Last season the Kings ranked 3rd in points per game, but dead last in opponents points per game.
Cousins is a big time star and last season he averaged 26.9 ppg and 11.5 rpg. He and Rudy Gay can score, but can the Kings keep the Suns from lighting up the scoreboard as well.
Last season’s 3rd leading scorer in Darren Collison is suspended for the first several games of the season and 4th leading scorer Rajon Rondo is now with the Bulls.
Marco Belinelli (10.2 ppg) is also gone and the Kings have to have some of the other players step up and it would help if last season’s first round pick Willie Cauley-Stein can make a big jump this season and help out on the defensive end of the floor.
Last season the Kings were 15-26 on the road.
Last season the Suns ranked 22nd in points per game and 28th in opponents points per game.
The Suns are led by their backcourt duo of Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight, who combined to average more than 40 ppg last season.
Phoenix had 2 PF’s that averaged over 12 ppg last season, but both are gone. 4th overall pick 7’1” PF Dragan Bender has a lot of talent, but he is very young and raw.
Phoenix does not have a lot of inside scoring threats and the team is hopling that C Alex Lin (9 ppg 7.6 rpg) cane break out in his 3rd season.
Even with Tyson Chandler the Suns struggled on D last season and he has to get back to being a premier rim protector.
