DET vs SAC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Both the teams will be looking to get back to winning ways when Sacramento Kings play host to Detroit Pistons in an NBA match at Golden 1 Center, in Downtown Sacramento, California, on Friday morning (IST).
Sacramento Kings fell to a shock 111-115 loss against Phoenix Suns last time around. The way Kings have been playing this season, it was out of the blue kind of result.
The Kings and Suns were heading into their encounter as one of the least performing teams. Sacramento lost six times in their last eight matches before the encounter against Suns. While Phoenix lost 8 of their last 10 games heading into the match against Sacramento.
The visitors are in a desperate need for a win after losing six times in the last seven matches. At one point they were at the top of the Eastern Conference table, while as things stand, they are sitting outside the playoff position.
It could be a golden opportunity missed by Pistons in the last game when they faced Los Angeles Lakers. After all the Showtime were without Lebron James, while Kyle Kuzma only returned in the last game and looked rusty. And not to mention all the problems and the confidence which get hit when results don’t go north.
But Pistons proved to be a brittle opponent for the Showtime and overpowered Detroit 113-110 at Staples Center. No player could touch the 20-point mark for them, while Kyle Kuzma chose them as his opponent for his career-high performance. The 23-year-old dropped a massive 41 points in the game, while Brandon Ingram produced an all-around performance to win the game for Lakers.
Pistons are now 17-22 in the East and will be travelling fior their next three ganes.
Regular Season Record-
Sacramento Kings: W-20, L-21
Detroit Pistons: W-17, L-22
Players to watch out for:
Buddy Hield – The only player in Kings’ roster to average in the 20s this season as the 26-year-old is dropping points at 20.2 per game. In the last game, the 26-year-old could manage just 16 points.
De’Aaron Fox – Scored a game-high 24 points in the last game to lead the resistance against Phoenix Suns. And that shows how talented gifted De’Aaron Fox is at a tender age of just 21 years. The young point guard is averaging 18.0 points per game, and he is also dropping the most assists for Kings this season.
Blake Griffin– He is Pistons’ best player by some margins. And he is doing everything in his capabilities, scoring points at an average which is good enough to fetch him an NBA MVP award. The 29-year-old is racking up 25.3 points per game this season.
Andre Drummond – He showed his class once again against Lakers as he dropped a game-high 17 rebounds in the match. And that’s why the points may not do justice to what he has been doing for his team. But his average of 17.1 points per game is more than decent. However, it’s his job inside the paint which is indispensable. The 25-year-old is accumulating 15.3 rebounds per game which is the highest in NBA this season.
