Sunday, December 10 the Toronto Raptors arrive in California to play a late matinee with the Sacramento Kings. Toronto is on a five game win streak with wins over the Suns and Grizzlies earlier this week. As for the Kings they upset the Pelicans in overtime Friday.
Although they are a lottery squad many of their victories have occurred versus the top teams and the Boogie era in Sacramento has a history of wins over the Raptors.
The reformulated squad features Raptors killers like Vince Carter and Zach Randolph who typically perform well against Toronto. Last season, the squads played twice with the Kings sweeping the season and Sacramento hold a four-game win streak over Toronto.
The Kings hold the all-time record having bested the Raptors 26 of their 41 matches.
It sure looked the Raptors were about to hand Memphis their second win in 14 games when they let the Grizzlies build a 17 point lead in the first 18 minutes Friday. Still leading by 13 the Grizzlies forced a turnover leading to a fast break and wide open Ben McLemore.
One failed 360 dunk attempt later and the sleeping Raptors awoke and became intent on not getting punked.
In the end the Raptors won by nine, but as soon as Toronto took the lead it was clear who the eventual winner would be. Rookie OG Anunoby was everywhere on the court forcing turnovers and helping on several key defensive stands.
Reserve Fred VanVleet was also key to the comeback pushing the pace to suit the Raptors and scoring 8 of his 12 points in the pivotal final frame.
While the Celtics and Cavaliers boast 16 and 13 game win streaks it is the Raptors who have quietly crept into second place in the East and after this road trip will have completed 12 of their 15 opposite coast road games. Conversely Boston and Cleveland have just three opposite coast games each to their credit.
Presumably the offseason thinking of the Kings was to add veteran leadership to help lead their young roster and accomplish growth in the competitive Western Conference.
To accomplish this goal Sacramento added Randolph, George hill and former Raptors star Carter. Ironically it is the Raptors who are the younger squad (7th) and are excelling at what the Kings 10th youngest squad was hoping to.
Still, the Kings youngsters are making a mark with De’Aaron Fox, Frank Mason Jr. and Buddy Hield all contributing. Despite having only eight wins closer examination of who those wins are against points to the ability of this young Kings squad.
Half of the wins are against current playoff seeds (76ers, Blazers, Warriors, Pelicans) with another vs. the Thunder.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
The Raptors will be focused on getting a win in Sacramento after key losses against this team. Twice in recent years referees have had a hand in the final outcome. Recalling the Kyle Lowry ejection a few years back and Terrence Ross’ game tying shot are two which stand out. So look for the Raptors to learn from their mistakes and jump on the Kings early.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Raptors -7
Raptors play again on Monday in LA versus the Clippers and won’t want to expend extra effort, so if Toronto sticks to the game plan they’ll look to shut down Sacramento early to allow the league’s best bench to finish the game.
