Sacramento Kings vs Atlanta Hawks
NBA Regular Season
SAC VS ATL MATCH PREVIEW:
Sacramento Kings host Atlanta Hawks in NBA action on Friday (IST) at Golden 1 Center, California.
Both teams, Kings, and Hawks are struggling this season and are already out of NBA playoffs contention.
Sacramento are 12th in Western Conference while Atlanta are last in the Eastern Conference and have lost a staggering 50 games this season, third worst and behind only Memphis Grizzlies and Phoenix Suns who have lost 52 and 53 games respectively in 2017-18.
For kings, the calculation is simple, they can't finish higher than 12th in NBA this season. But depending on results, all the teams below them still have the room to move above them in the table.
Meanwhile, for Hawks, the gap between them and the 12th placed Chicago Bulls is just three games. So they still have the chance to improve their rankings.
When: March 23, 07:30 AM IST
Where: Golden 1 Center, California
Form of the Team-
Sacramento Kings are heading into this match after suffering back-to-back defeats against Utah Jazz and Detroit Pistons. In fact, they have lost four times in their last six games.
So the home team will be hoping for some solace at Golden 1 Center and be aiming to avoid the 3rd straight defeat against another struggler Atlanta Hawks.
The visitors, on the other hand, have lost 11 times in their last 14 NBA games. But Hawks will certainly be not on short of confidence in this match after beating red-hot Utah Jazz in their last game. The match also saw Dennis Schroder accumulating his best ever career tally as he scored 41 points in that victory.
Sacramento Kings – Win – 23, Loss – 49
