Who’s Playing

Sacramento @ Milwaukee

Current Records: Sacramento 18-29; Milwaukee 29-19

What to Know

The Sacramento Kings are 2-10 against the Milwaukee Bucks since November of 2015, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Saturday. Sacramento will take on Milwaukee at 7 p.m. ET at Fiserv Forum after having had a few days off. If the game is anything like the Bucks’ 129-128 victory from their previous meeting in April of last year, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

It was close but no cigar for the Kings as they fell 133-131 to the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday. A silver lining for Sacramento was the play of small forward Terence Davis, who shot 7-for-13 from downtown and finished with 35 points and six rebounds.

Speaking of close games: things were close when Milwaukee and the Chicago Bulls clashed on Friday, but Milwaukee ultimately edged out the opposition 94-90. Milwaukee’s power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo did his thing and posted a double-double on 30 points and 12 boards.

Sacramento is expected to lose this next one by 9.5. Now might not be the best time to take Sacramento against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past two consecutive games.

Sacramento is now 18-29 while Milwaukee sits at 29-19. A couple defensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Kings are third worst in the league in points allowed per game, with 114.1 on average. The Bucks’ defense has more to brag about, as they they have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 43.60%, which places them second in the league. So the cards are definitely stacked in their favor.
