Bet on the NBAThe Sacramento Kings and San Antonio Spurs will be competing tonight on NBA TV. The game will be at Sacramento's Power Balance Pavilion.
The Kings are 13-10 at the Pavilion this year. However, the Spurs have a greater amount of momentum going for them at this time
The two teams are meeting each other for only the second time this year. The Kings stunned the Spurs 88-86 back on January 20, giving the Spurs its first home loss of the season.
The Spurs have since gone on to one of the best runs in basketball betting. The Spurs have won six straight games. This includes yesterday's 107-100 win over Phoenix. The Spurs are also tied for the NBA's best last ten games record. The Spurs have gone 8-2 in their last ten. This has contributed to the team's 34-14 record.
Tim Duncan returned to the Spurs' lineup after sitting out a prior game earlier this week. Stephen Jackson, who was acquired off of Golden State earlier this month, is also expected to play after missing yesterday's game. Jackson was acquired for depth as a backup guard and has been contributing 10.5 points per game this year.
The Sacramento Kings have the second worst record among teams in the Western Conference. They have a 17-32 record and are five games over New Orleans for the worst record in the conference. The Kings also have the NBA's worst defense. The team has given up 103.6 points per game this year.
Marcus Thornton will be playing even though he played in 47 of the 53 minutes of a 113-106 overtime loss to Houston on Monday. Thornton had 27 points during the game, thus helping him to improve on his 19 average this year.
The San Antonio Spurs have a -4 advantage and have a -105 payout in the sportsbook. There is a -115 payout for the +4 Kings bet. People can also use a 213 over/under bet for the entire game.
