Washington Wizards (3-2 SU, 2-3 ATS, 3-2 O/U) vs. Sacramento Kings (1-4 SU, 2-3 ATS, 2-3 O/U)

NBA: Sunday, October 29, 2017, Golden 1 Center, Sacramento, California, 6 pm ET

Line: N/A; Over/Under: N/A

It’s an inter-conference tilt between two teams from opposite coasts meeting in the capital city of the Golden State. The Washington Wizards cap a four game road trip out west as they face the Sacramento Kings Sunday evening. Washington lost its second straight with a 120-117 road loss to the Warriors Friday night. Sacramento has lost three in a row after falling 114-106 at home to the Pelicans Thursday. The Kings hold a 104-90 edge in the all-time regular season series but the Wizards swept the two game set last season.

Washington Wizards Try to Cap Road Trip on Positive Note

Washington has dropped two straight to fall to 1-2 on their road trip. The Wizards look to even their record and end the trip on a positive note with a win here. Washington led by as many as 18 in the game: they held a 14 point edge at the half and a 10 point bulge after three quarters. The Wizards were outscored 33-20 in the fourth quarter to take the loss. Washington shot 44.3 percent from the floor and knocked down 15 of 33 from three point range in the contest. Otto Porter Jr. had 29 points and 10 rebounds to lead Washington in the loss. Bradley Beal was ejected for an altercation with Draymond Green.

The Wizards are 5th in the league in scoring offense with 112 points per game. Washington is 21st in the league on the glass with 42.6 boards per game. The Wizards are 4th with 24 assists per game. Washington is tied for 23rd in the league as they allow 110.4 points per game on the year. John Wall is leading the team with 22.2 points and 10.6 assists per game. Bradley Beal averages 20.4 points a game while Otto Porter Jr. (19.2 points, eight boards, 2.8 steals) continues to move along his development curve.  Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat (13.6 points, 9.8 rebounds) are the other Washington starters and both are capable scoring options: Morris is still out and isn’t ready to return. Kelly Oubre Jr. along with Jodie Meeks, Mike Scott and Tim Frazier will be looked at to contribute off the pine. Washington is 17th in field goal percentage as the team shoots a collective 44.9 percent from the floor. The Wizards are tied for 24th in the league with 8.4 triples a night while ranking tied for 21st in three point shooting. Washington hits 32.8 percent from downtown.

Sacramento Kings Look to Stop Slide at Three

Sacramento dropped their third straight as they received a rude return from DeMarcus Cousins, who became the third player in NBA history to go for 40 points and 20 rebounds in a game against a former team. The Kings led by 13 after one quarter and 14 at the half before letting things slip away: they were outscored 58-36 in the second half. Sacramento shot 46.9 percent from the floor and went 7 of 20 from three point range. The Kings were beaten 47-34 on the glass in the game: De’Aaron Fox led the team with 14 points off the bench in the contest.

The Kings have struggled on the offensive end of the floor this season. Sacramento is 25th in the league in scoring with 98.6 points per game and tied for 22nd in rebounding with 41.1 boards per contest. The Kings are 25th with 19.6 assists a night. Sacramento has been average defensively, ranking 16th by allowing 104 points per game. De’Aaron Fox leads the Kings with 14.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and five assists per game. Buddy Hield (12.2 points) and Skal Labissiere (12.2 points, 5.2 rebounds) are part of the young wing group for Sacramento. Willie Cauley-Stein (11.2 points, seven boards) is the key man in the low block while Bogdan Bogdanovic and Garrett Temple (11 points) provide veteran help in the backcourt. George Hill, Zach Randolph, Vince Carter and Kosta Koufos have to be mentors for the young guys along with Frank Mason III and Justin Jackson. Sacramento is tied for 21st in the league in field goal percentage as they shoot 43.4 percent from the floor. The Kings stand tied for 24th in the league with 8.4 three pointers per game and currently are 4th in three point shooting at 37.8 percent from beyond the arc.

  • Kings are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference

Washington had their chances to upend the Warriors but let things slip away in the fourth quarter. Beal’s status is up in the air for this one as the league may contemplate disciplinary action for the incident with Green. Sacramento is an extremely young team: they’ve sprinkled in some veterans like Hill, Randolph and Carter to help out but the fact remains the Kings are driven by youth. That’s a tough road to travel for any team, especially one that is struggling without a cornerstone player. The Wizards get the nod here as they head home with a .500 road trip.
