Game Preview

The Kings are 12 games above .500 and look to be a serious threat in the Western Conference. The one loss lately came to the Minnesota Timberwolves by four points, but Sacramento has won six games since the All-Star Break ended.

In the recent win against the New Orleans Pelicans, Kevin Huerter led the way with 25 points and Domantas Sabonis had a 19/11/11 triple-double as De’Aaron Fox missed the contest.

The Knicks were riding high after a thrilling victory over the Boston Celtics on Sunday. However, the Hornets stunned New York on Tuesday night as Jalen Brunson once again sat out for New York.

RJ Barrett had 27 points to lead the Knicks, but the story of the week was Immanuel Quickley’s massive 38-point performance against Boston.

This New York team is much different without Brunson, and it remains to be seen whether or not he returns for Thursday’s game.


Even if Jalen Brunson plays, the Kings are simply too dangerous offensively to get it down. De’Aaron Fox should be available soon, if not Thursday, and the Kings are having a terrific season while paying at Golden 1 Center. Sacramento’s impressive season continues with a close win over the Knicks.
