SACRAMENTO KINGS vs NY KNICKS
December 11 2015, Sacramento CA 3:30 GMT +0
Tommorow early in the morning (by GMT +0 time) a matchup with Kings and Knicks will unfold.
The kings are averaging 45,3% shot from the field and 105,2 PPG (5th most in the league), and allowing the opponents to score a average of 108,7 points per game with 46,4% shooting from the field. After losing their last 3 games, they managed to win over Utah Jazz at home, by 8 points. Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins both scored 23 points and lead the Kings to victory. Now Kings hope to make it 2 wins in a row, when NY Knicks come to their town. The statistic of 108,7 PPG that Kings allow opponents to score might be a problem against Knicks, who have Carmelo Anthony (21.0 PPG)and Kristaps Porzingis (14.2 PPG). If Kings shut those two down, they won’t have a reason to worry. Both Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins will lead the Kings attack.
On the other side we have NY Knicks, who suffered a loss against Utah Jazz (106:85), who could not catch up with Utah Jazz, Gordon Hayward (24 points) and Derrick Favors (20 points) were too much to overcome. That loss was 13th of the season and 3rd in a row, now they have a chance to stop this loosing streak and win in California against Sacramento Kings. Both Anthony and Porzingis will need to prove themselves in this matchup and improve their game from game agains Jazz where they combined only 16 points. But Knicks also have Arron Afflalo, who could actually make a big difference in this match. He is averaging 12.4 PPG in last 15 games. The main key to Knick victory will be their defence (who allow 98,7 points per game), who will try to stop Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins. If they succeed there is no doubt Knick will win.
BET: Kings -5
