The Sacramento Kings, coming off a solid three point win over the Charlotte Hornets, go on the road to take on the Philadelphia 76ers who gave the Rockets a good fight but had a very difficult time competing with the Chicago Bulls last night.
The 76ers will be playing this game without the services of Joel Embiid and with him sitting out for this game it makes things pretty tough for a team when you take away their best player on both ends of the floor. The 76ers have continues to struggle greatly on the defensive end of the floor and you have to hope that this young up and coming team will find a way to improve on that end as the season goes on.
The Sacramento Kings are still very much in the playoff hunt and anyone that is a basketball fan should be excited by the idea of DeMarcus Cousins getting to showcase his talents in the greatest stage. The Kings have been limited this season by their defense and lack of rebounding but over their last few games should take heart with Darren Collison starting to play much better.
Take the Kings to get the win and small cover in this one as they are the better overall team with Embiid out for the Philadelphia and should be in for a much needed win.
