In the fourth and final meeting between these two Western Conference opponents, the Sacramento Kings will hope to avoid being win less against the San Antonio Spurs during the 2016-17 season.
Both teams are on opposite ends of the playoff spectrum.
The Kings, in their second meeting since trading their enigmatic superstar DeMarcus Cousins, will hope that they’ve developed some continuity with their new players while also being in full blown tank mode.
The Spurs on the other hand are hot on the trail of the Golden State Warriors for the top seed in the Western Conference and home court advantage throughout the playoffs.
The Kings have little desire to win these days and are 2-8 in their last ten games. The team has been free falling from the playoff picture ever since they traded Cousins all the while trying to find continuity in his absence.
One of those players searching for continuity is SG Buddy Hield. Acquired from the New Orleans Pelicans as part of the Cousins trade, Hield is putting forth his best effort to prove his worth as the sixth overall pick from last year’s draft.
Hield has had a mini resurgence during his time with Sacramento, increasing both his scoring load and his efficiency numbers during his time with the Kings.
Part of his increased productivity has included Hield having more opportunities as a playmaker, rather than simply a spot up shooter.
Despite Hield’s presence however, the team has not made much improvements in the short term. They are scoring more in their last five games, but their defense has suffered as a result of losing an interior presence.
Most notably the team has simply gotten younger up and down their lineup. This includes rookies Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis and second year player Willie Cauley-Stein, all receiving significantly more playing time since the trade.
It’s apparent that the Kings are embracing a youth movement, which is positive for their future, not so much for their present.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs received quite a scare of the past couple of weeks when star player Lamarcus Aldridge missed time due to a heart condition. For many NBA fans, this reminded us of Chris Bosh’s recent issue with a heart condition that has sidelined him indefinitely.
However Aldridge has returned and did so in a big way.
He scored 21 points in 34 minutes against the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night. However, given coach Gregg Popovich’s propensity to sit his players, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Aldridge receive limited time in Sunday’s game versus the Kings.
This may have little to do with Sunday’s outcome though, the Spurs have a clear objective to win and take care of lesser teams.
The Spurs have been reeling a bit, losing three of their last five, but they are still a team at the top of the league that feasts on lesser opponents.

Free Sacramento Kings vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction:
Both teams are off of a back to back, so there isn’t a huge advantage in that aspect.

However, the Spurs being at home with a clear goal in mind have a clear advantage in this game.
NBA Free Score Prediction: Kings 94 – Spurs 110
The Spurs should be rolling in this game with a healthy, albeit limited, Aldridge back in the fold. The over seems like a safe play.
