Who’s Playing

New Orleans @ Sacramento

Current Records: New Orleans 1-7; Sacramento 3-4

What to Know

The Sacramento Kings will be returning home after a four-game road trip. They and the New Orleans Pelicans will face off at 10 p.m. ET Nov. 3 at Golden 1 Center without much rest after finishing up games yesterday. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.

Sacramento was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Tuesday as they fell 119-113 to the Utah Jazz. The top scorer for the Kings was small forward Harrison Barnes (23 points).

Meanwhile, the matchup between New Orleans and the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday was not particularly close, with New Orleans falling 112-100. New Orleans was up 36-22 at the end of the first quarter but couldn’t hold on to the lead. Center Jonas Valanciunas put forth a good effort for the losing side as he dropped a double-double on 23 points and 14 rebounds.

Sacramento is the favorite in this one, with an expected 5.5-point margin of victory. Their home court has been no bettor’s paradise, though, as they’ve failed to beat the spread in two of their two home games.

The losses put the Kings at 3-4 and the Pelicans at 1-7. Two defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Sacramento is fifth worst in the league in points allowed per game, with 112.9 on average. New Orleans has experienced some struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 46.60% from the floor on average, which is the fifth highest shooting percentage allowed in the league. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
