Two teams from opposing conferences coming off victories in their latest matchups are clashing tonight, when the Sacramento Kings (32-31), who ended losing streak and want to continue on the winning ways, are hosting the Boston Celtics (33-32), who are coming off a huge road victory against the defending champions.
Date/Time: 03-06-2019, 22:00 EDT
Spread: Sacramento Kings +2
Sacramento Kings have a 32-31 record (37-26 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 9th place of the West. In their last game they snapped a three-game losing streak by winning at home against the Knicks with a 115-108 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Buddy Hield with 21 ppg, adding 5.2 boards per game. He is followed by De’Aaron Fox with 17.2 ppg, 3.7 boards and a team high 7.2 dimes per game.
Boston Celtics have a 39-26 record (33-32 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 5th place of the East. They have won two of their last three matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Warriors with a 128-95 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Kyrie Irving with 23.4 ppg, adding 4.9 boards and a team high 7 dimes per game. He is followed by Jayson Tatum with 16.1 ppg and 6.2 boards per game.
Celtics won both meetings against the Kings last season (at home by 27 points and on the road by 11). Kings have a 20-13 home record, while the Celtics are 15-16 on the road. Kings are better offensively, scoring 113.9 ppg to Celtics’ 112.2 ppg, while Celtics are better defensively, allowing 106.6 ppg to Kings’ 115.1. Both teams have the same field goal percentage (46.3%), while Kings have a better 3-point percentage (37.5% to 36.5%). Celtics are better both in dimes made (26.3 to 25.6) and in turnovers committed (12.6 to 13.4), while Kings are better in boards grabbed (45.3 to 44.9). Celtics have been mediocre on the road and while Vegas odds give them a -2 spread, don’t expect them to beat the odds and pick the Kings in this one.
