Two teams fighting for the 8th and final playoff place of their respective conference are clashing tonight, when the Sacramento Kings (34-35), who still mathematically have chances for the postseason and want to turn their latest victory into a streak, are hosting the Brooklyn Nets (36-36), who have dropped three straight but are still 2 ½ games above the 8th place.

Sacramento Kings have a 34-35 record (41-27-1 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 Bulls with a 129-102 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Buddy Hield with 20.9 ppg, adding 5.2 boards per game. He is followed by De’Aaron Fox with 17.5 ppg, 3.7 boards and a team high 7.2 dimes per game.
Brooklyn Nets have a 36-36 record (38-34 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 7th place of the East. They have three consecutive losses and in their last game they lost on the road against the Clippers with a 116-119 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by D’Angelo Russell with 20.4 ppg, adding a team high 6.8 dimes per game. He is followed by Spencer Dinwiddie with 17.5 ppg and 4.8 dimes per game.

Kings are better offensively, scoring 114 ppg to Nets’ 111.5 ppg, while Nets are better defensively, allowing 111.8 ppg to Kings’ 114.9. Kings have better percentages both in field goals (46.4% to 44.9%) and in 3-pointers (37.3% to 35.3%). They are also better in dimes made (25.6 to 23.8) and in turnovers committed (13.2 to 14.3), while Nets are better in boards grabbed (46.1 to 45.4). Kings are the favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -3.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds against a struggling lately Nets team.
