The Kings had won 2 in a row before losing to the Lakers 101-91 at home last night. Tonight is their first game facing the Blazers this season.
Portland had their 3-game win streak snapped in their last game losing badly to the L.A. Clippers 111-80 in La La Land.
Last season the Blazers won all 4 games facing the Kings.
The Kings rank 23rd in the league in points per game and 11th in opponents’ points per game.
In their loss to the Lakers the Kings struggled on both ends of the floor only shooting 40% from the field and allowing the Lakers to shoot 51.4%.
In the game the Kings had 13 steals and forced 21 turnovers, but their poor shooting doomed them.
DeMarcus Cousins scored 28 points in the Lakers game and pulled down 9 boards, but he was only 10/25 from the field. Rudy Gay went for 15 points, which is well below his season average and Aaron Afflalo had 9 points, but missed 7 of his 10 shots.
For the Kings to win they need Cousins and Gay to score and shoot well since no other player on the team is averaging in double digits. Both of these players are averaging over 22 points per game.
Cousins has added the 3-pt shot to his arsenal and while he was a pretty good deep shooter last season he is only hitting on 22.7% of his 3-pointers this season.
The Kings are 2-4 on the road this season.
The Blazers rank 10th in the league in points per game and 27th in opponents’ points per game.
In their loss to the Clippers the Blazers simply could not shoot the rock with a paltry FG% of 35.2%.
How bad were the Blazers in the L.A. loss?
Well, besides their terrible FG% leading scorer Damian Lillard only went for 8 points, which is 22 below his season average, on 1/10 shooting and 2nd leading scorer C.J. McCollum also only had 8 points on 4/11 shooting.
No Portland starter scored in double figures in the game.
Lillard and McCollum were combined 0/6 from beyond the 3-point arc and for the game the Blazers missed 24 of their 30 long balls.
Portland gave up 14 offensive boards in the loss to the Clippers and facing Cousins tonight that has to be a concern. The Blazers lack a true C and the big guys down low have to man up and keep the Kings from dominating the glass.
The Blazers are 2-2 at home this season.
