NBA Tips – Brooklyn Nets V Sacramento Kings

13:00 (AEDT), Wed 20th Mar @ Golden 1 Center, Sacramento

History: Played 88: Kings 49 V Nets 39

Last meeting: January 21, 2019: Nets 123 d Kings 94 at Barclays Center

Final Thoughts: The Brooklyn Nets are aiming to snap a losing streak and consolidate their place in the top half of the Eastern Conference. The Sacramento Kings are clinging to life in the Western Conference playoffs race.

The 36-36 Nets are seventh in the East but have lost their last three to the Thunder, Jazz and Clippers. This is their fourth assignment in a punishing eight-game road stand.

D’Angelo Russell has been the Nets’ talisman. He put up 32 points, 10 assists and 5 rebounds in the three-point defeat to the Clippers.

The Kings are ninth in the West with a 34-35 record. They have lost nine of their last 13, but creamed the Bulls 129-102 two days ago with Marvin Bagley (21 pts, 9 reb) starring off the bench.

The growth of second-season point guard De’Aaron Fox (averaging 17.5 pts and 7.2 assists) has been a feature of the Kings’ campaign.

The Nets powered to a 123-94 victory when the teams met in January. Russell was the standout with 31 points, 8 assists and 4 rebounds.

But the Kings have won three of their last five against the Nets at home, including an overtime success last season.

The Nets are 15-20 on the road, losing for of their five away from Brooklyn. The Kings are 21-14 at home but have dropped three of their last five at Golden 1 Center.

The Kings have not managed back-to-back wins since February 10. Despite their recent run of outs, the Nets look excellent value as sizeable away underdogs to get back in the winner’s circle.
