Head Coach Terry Stotts gets to see how his team performs in a back to back scenario after Damian Lillard missed a game-tying three-point shot at the Buzzer in Denver.
Tonight’s game is the third of four meetings between the teams this season with Portland looking to make it three in a row after a 113-106 road victory as 1 point road FAVORITES ATS on New Year’s Day.
The Trail Blazers will be without small forward Moe Harkless who missed the last three with a knee injury. Despite the loss last night in Denver, Stotts is pleased with his performance at both ends of the floor.
Portland scores (108.5) points per game on the road this season but they’ve put up (113.0) their last two in wins over Golden State and tonight’s opponent. The Trailblazers allow opponents (113.8) ppg on the road this season on (47.4%) shooting from the field which is 20th in the Association. With Lillard and shooting guard CJ McCollum in the backcourt it seems as Portland would shot a higher percentage from beyond the three-point line, it hasn’t been the case this season with the (35.6%) ranking 11th league-wide.
However, the Trail Blazers (81.4%) from the free throw line is third in the NBA.
The Best Basketball Handicappers believes the key to a Portland win tonight is to play tight defense in a back to back games. Stotts understand the Kings will try to attack what could be an exhausted Trailblazer team.
Bovada.Lv list the Portland Trailblazers win total at 42 games for 2018-19.
Sacramento Kings point guard De’Aaron Fox leads the team in steals, assists and his (17.9) points per contest is second to backcourt mate Buddy Hield, (20.1.) ppg.
Both sides played Charlotte in the past 3 days with Sacramento scoring 104 points while Portland put up 127 on the Hornets. All seems quite in Sacramento with the trade deadline coming to an end, but General manager Vlade Divac has options.
Head Coach Dave Joerger is doing a masterful job with a roster that has plenty of youthful talent. Joerger earned a reputation of playing hard-nosed defense when he was in Memphis, and he’s instilling the same principle with the Kings which shows as they’ve given up an average of (107.0) ppg the last four.
The Kings score (116.5) points per games which is 5th league-wide while (38.9%) they shoot from beyond the three-point line is second in the league. However they need help rebounding, and Stotts knows they’ll have their work cut out tonight against a Portland team that ranks third in the NBA.
It was refreshing to hear rookie Power Forward Marvin Bagley III embrace being drafted by the organization in an era where most players will do anything to get out of Sacramento.
This Sports Handicapper understands Stotts defensive, but Sacramento should force the pace tonight.
Bovada.Lv list the Sacramento Kings win total at 26 games for 2018-19.
