What to Know
The Sacramento Kings will be playing at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers at 10:00 p.m. ET on Monday at Golden 1 Center. Both teams worked hard to overcome the odds in their previous battles and are surely both feeling confident heading into this clash.
Winning is just a little bit easier when you outrebound your opponent 16 to 5 on the offensive boards, a fact the Kings proved on Friday. They walked away with a 105-98 win over Oklahoma City. The victory made it back-to-back wins for the Kings.
The Kings’ victory was a true team effort, with many players turning in solid performances. Perhaps the best among them was Kevin Huerter, who earned 28 points along with 9 rebounds and 3 steals. Huerter continues to roll, besting his previous point total in each of the last three games he’s played. Keegan Murray was another key contributor, dropping a double-double on 24 points and 11 rebounds.
Even though the Cavaliers have not done well against the Warriors recently (they were 1-9 in their previous ten matchups), they didn’t let the past get in their way on Saturday. Cleveland came out on top against Golden State by a score of 118-110.
The Cavaliers’ win was the result of several impressive offensive performances. One of the most notable came from Caris LeVert, who earned 22 points along with 4 steals.
Their wins bumped Sacramento to 4-4 and Cleveland to 4-5.
Both teams pleased both fans and bettors in their last games by winning and covering the spread. Looking forward, the Kings are expected to win a tight contest, barring any buzzer beaters. For those looking to play the spread, keep Cleveland’s opponent in mind: they have a subpar 2-6 record against the spread vs Sacramento over their last eight matchups.
This contest is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: The Kings haven’t given up the ball easily this season, having only averaged 13.6 turnovers per game. However, it’s not like the Cavaliers struggle in that department as they’ve been averaging only 13.4 per game. Given these competing strengths, it’ll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.
