The Sacramento Kings take on the Toronto Raptors in this early season showdown.
The Kings won both of last season’s games by an average score of 106-98.
The success of this team starts and ends with talented but mercurial center Demarcus Cousins. The All Star big man is starting off this season red hot, averaging 28 points and 9 rebounds per game this year.
It will be a great matchup against the Raptors front line, but there shouldn’t be any reason that Boogie Cousins does not reach his season numbers.
Rudy Gay has been the subject of trade rumors his entire time in Sacramento, but his strong play this year, plus a deep draft class may get the talented wing moved by the deadline.
On the season Gay has put up good numbers as the second scoring option, averaging 22 points and 5 rebounds per contest.
He will have a good matchup with athletic wing Demar DeRozan guarding him for a good chunk of the game, but he will still have a chance to put up 20 points.
Getting Rajon Rondo out of the backcourt will do wonders for the chemistry and morale of the team.
Veteran pont guard Ty Lawson did not work out in Houston, but he is a very capable pass first guard who can average over 7 assists per game in the right offense.
He is putting up numbers similar to Rondo did last year and the speedy guard should put up good numbers against fellow vet Kyle Lowry.
Reaching the Eastern Conference finals last season was the peak of Raptors basketball, and resigning DeMar DeRozan was the #1 priority for the front office. Signing the talented guard to such a lucrative deal has paid off so far this season as he is one of the top scorers in the league.
He is averaging 36 points and 6 rebounds per game in the early part of the season.
He will go toe to toe with Rudy Gay, but I don’t see Gay being able to slow down this scoring tear by DeRozan, expect him to get his 3rd 40 point game of the season.
Kyle Lowry’s shooting woes from the playoff have continued so far this season. He is averaging 17 points per game on a very inefficient 33% field goal percentage and 27% 3 point percentage.
He shouldn’t have any issues against the Kings backcourt, as their perimeter defense outside of Rudy Gay lacks any punch. I’m expecting 25 and 9 from the point guard.
Jonas Valanciunas has grown into one of the more consistent big men in the Eastern Conference. He is averaging 13 points and 11 rebounds this season which are right around his career average.
Against Demarcus Cousins he will need to focus on getting him into foul trouble early on the offensive end, and do his best to contain him when playing defense.
His injury is a big loss for the 76ers roster.
