The Nets collapsed late on their match against the Lakers as they were outscored by 10 points on the final quarter. The absence of Kyri Irving and ben Simmons continue to hurt the Nets, so they need to adjust more in order for them to win their next matches. Due to this loss, the Nets dropped to 6-8 in the league, and is needing to badly bounce back in this match. In fact, they dropped big time in the three-points territory, as they only made seven out of their 27 three-pointers. From 35.9%, they are now at 25.9%, which is not a good sight to see. Defensively, they are doing quite well, only allowing 108.7 points per game, making them seventh in the league defensively.

Kevin Durant have stepped up big time for the Nets, following the absence of their other key players. He is averaging 30.6 points per game, 5.3 assists, and 6.6 rebounds per game. However, although Durant is playing big, this squad is missing out the performances of some of their key players. Kyrie Irving is still suspended, and Ben Simmons is still suffering from his knee injury. As for Seth Curry, he is in need of rest, that is why he will not play here, while Nic Claxton have some eye issues.

This squad is confident coming into this game as they were able to beat the Warriors, with a score of 122-115. This is all thanks to Domantas Sabonis who have been monstrous in this game, having a double-double performance. He had 26 points and 22 rebounds across his name, allowing the Kings enjoy a 6-6 record. At home, they have a split record of 3-3, but they won their last three matches at home, so they have the little advantage here. The Kings are phenomenal offensively, and they have proved that they are currently one of the best shooting teams. They are are actually 5th offensively as they are scoring 116.8 points per game.

If Sabonis continue to play this way, the Kings will definitely go far this season. He is actually the second when it comes to team scoring, but in this match, he proved that he is more than just the rebounds he can make.

Prediction:

Sacramento Kings
Total Under: 113.5
