What you need to know about the Kings
The Kings fell 126-114 on the road against the Golden State Warriors on Thursday. Harrison Barnes had 25 points along with five rebounds in the defeat and Davion Mitchell had 26 points and eight assists.
Mitchell has started the last five games with De’Aaron Fox battling an ankle injury and the rookie has played well. Mitchell is averaging 19.4 points and 5.4 assists per game during that stretch and is shooting 48.8 percent from the floor and 38.9 percent from the 3-point line during that span. Fox is questionable for this matchup
What you need to know about the Thunder
Meanwhile, things were close when Oklahoma City and the Portland Trail Blazers clashed on Friday, but the Thunder ultimately edged out the opposition 96-93. Small forward Luguentz Dort (23 points) was the top scorer for Oklahoma City. The Thunder have now won three games in a row despite being without star guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (ankle).
Dort has become the primary scorer with Gilgeous-Alexander out and it’s a role he’s taken to. The Arizona State product is averaging 23.7 points during the current winning streak and he’s had at least 23 points in three of his last four outings. He’ll have to be a primary focus of the Kings on Saturday.
