Who’s Playing

Boston @ Sacramento

Current Records: Boston 42-28; Sacramento 25-46

What to Know

This Friday, the Sacramento Kings are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 115.56 points per game. They have the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome the Boston Celtics at 10 p.m. ET March 18 at Golden 1 Center. The odds don’t look promising for the Kings, but the bigger the opponent is, the harder they fall.

Sacramento came up short against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, falling 135-126. A silver lining for Sacramento was the play of power forward Domantas Sabonis, who had 22 points and seven assists along with five boards.

Meanwhile, everything went Boston’s way against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday as they made off with a 110-88 win. Point guard Marcus Smart was the offensive standout of the contest for Boston, picking up 20 points and eight assists.

Sacramento took a serious blow against the Celtics in the teams’ previous meeting in January, falling 128-75. Maybe the Kings will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
