The Suns' last game was the quarterfinals of the In-Season Tournament, where the team faced the Los Angeles Lakers. Phoenix could not stop LeBron James, who had a great game, and Devin Booker failed in the Suns - 21 points, 11 assists, but 7 losses and only 6 of 16 from the floor. As a result, Phoenix was not helped even by 31 points for efficiency from Kevin Durant. 103:106 - the Suns lost and left the tournament.
Durant's injury is not serious, and there is no information that the team leader will miss any other games besides the game against Sacramento. Grayson Allen will also not play against the Kings. Bradley Beal is still in the infirmary as well.
The Kings also made the In-Season tournament playoffs and lost to New Orleans. The team, which often happened to them in the last championship, was effective on offense but failed on their side of the floor - 117:127. Domantas Sabonis' triple-double - 26 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists - should not be ignored. D'Aron Fox scored 30 points, Malik Monk - 21.
Sacramento has a better injury situation than Phoenix. Colby Jones and Chris Duarte will not participate in the upcoming game, but these players can hardly be called the main ones.
Expert Betting Tips
Without Kevin Durant, Phoenix is unlikely to have any chance of success against such a tough team as Sacramento. Although in two previous games, in the absence of their leader this season, the Suns won, the opponents there were Western Conference outsiders Memphis and New York. The Kings are unlikely to allow themselves such a thing. Let's bet on the guests.
