The Kings and Wizards are both longshots at this point to make the postseason, but both are fighting for positioning until the dire end. Sacramento enters this contest as the No. 9 seed out West just 3.5 games behind the eighth-seeded San Antonio Spurs, while the Wizards sit in the 11th seed out East but also just 3.5 games back from being in the top eight.
These two tip off at 7:00 p.m. ET.
The Kings enter this game as the No. 10 scoring team in the NBA this season. They are scoring an average of 113.6 points per game.
On defense, this group is giving up an average of 114.7 points per night. That puts the team in the 26th position in the league.
When looking at advanced metrics, the Kings jump up to 15th in Defensive Efficiency. This group is giving up 107.6 points per 100 possessions, which is currently tied with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The dip from 10th in raw scoring to 17th in Offensive Efficiency can be best explained by Sacramento’s pace this season. On the year, the Kings are running the No. 3 pace in the Association, which has helped improve their raw scoring numbers by simple virtue of added possessions and forcing opponents to play at a faster pace than they’re used to.
The Wizards are a lot like the Kings in that their fast pace is a big reason why they’re offense has found the success it has. On the year, Washington is No. 8 in pace and sixth in scoring. The team is putting up 114.5 points per night but just 108.6 points per 100 possessions.
That number is still in the top half of the league, but it’s also a dip from eighth down to 13th.
