On Thursday, March 4th the Sacramento Kings and Portland Trail Blazers will meet for the third time this season. Portland won both of those games.
The Blazers hold the all-time record between the clubs with 137 wins in 218 meetings. Last season, the teams played on four occasions with each team winning two contests.
This is the second game of a back-to-back set for the Kings who played Wednesday. With LeBron James remaining in LA nursing a sore ankle and a myriad of other nagging injuries Sacramento took advantage pulling out an impressive 123-120 upset victory.
It was only their second win in the last 12 games played but far more satisfying than the win over the Pistons.
With just one more game to play prior to heading on a brief All-Star break, the Kings will try to garner another victory to end the first half on a positive note.
In the victory, Buddy Hield factored large, scoring 29 points. Hield wasn’t even sure he’d be playing as he nursed a sore ankle but elected to fight through the pain.
De’Aaron Fox added 23 points, eight assists, and three steals before fouling out late in the match. Harrison Barnes (20), Richaun Holmes (16), Marvin Bagley III (14), and Cory Joseph (13) were the other double-figure contributors.
Rookie Tyrese Haliburton missed the last three games with a calf injury and is expected to be out until after the All-Star break.
Jabari Parker (protocols) is listed as day-to-day while Robert Woodard (hamstring), Chemezie Metu (wrist), Hassan Whiteside (protocols) are all out.
Portland Trail Blazers
If anyone wants to question why Damian Lillard should be in the Most Valuable Player conversation the Blazers victory over the Warriors and his play down the stretch is a perfect example of why,
In the victory over the Warriors on Wednesday, he hit one of those typical super deep 3-point shots to put the Blazers ahead with under 15 seconds remaining.
But, the charge he took from Draymond Green on the very next play ensured victory. Although, Warriors coach Steve Kerr asked for a coach’s challenge it was proven unsuccessful.
Carmelo Anthony matched Lillard with 22 points while Enes Kanter delivered a double-double of 11 points and 14 rebounds. Robert Covington and Gary Trent Jr. each scored 15 points as the other double-figure contributors.
The win was significant as the Blazers had lost four in a row prior to the win versus the Hornets so they’ll be looking to make it three games in a row entering the break.
CJ McCollum (foot), Jusuf Nurkic (wrist), Zach Collins (medial malleolus stress fracture to his ankle), and Harry Giles (calf) are all out.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Blazers are 7-3 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
- The Blazers are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 head to head meetings
- Over/Under is 6-4 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
Free Sacramento Kings vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Prediction:
Neither team has the rest advantage having both played and won on Wednesday. But if I have to bet on relying on a player to keep their team focused I’ll take Dame every time.
