In California’s capital, the Sacramento Kings (43-29, 40-31-1 ATS) will host the Phoenix Suns (38-34, 37-34-1 ATS) in a matchup between two Pacific Division rivals and Western Conference contenders. This will be their fourth and final meeting, with Phoenix winning two and Sacramento taking one two weeks ago. Both teams are currently in position to have home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, but a win in this game would be crucial for their playoff positioning.
The Suns have been on a bit of a rough patch lately, going 1-5 in their last six games after a strong run of 16-5. They currently hold the fourth seed in the Western Conference but are only two games ahead of the seventh seed, which would force them into the play-in tournament and eliminate their home-court advantage. They are coming off an 11-point loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, where the absence of Deandre Ayton on defense was noticeable.
Despite their struggles, the Suns’ offense is still solid, ranking 15th in offensive rating and boasting an efficient three-point shooting percentage. However, the loss of Kevin Durant, who was acquired at the trade deadline but has been injured, has hurt their offensive hopes. On defense, they are typically stout but have the worst free throw rate in the league.

The Kings, on the other hand, have been surprising many with their offensive prowess, boasting the highest offensive rating of any NBA team this season. However, their defense is a cause for concern, ranking 26th in defensive rating and allowing opponents to shoot at a high percentage. They are currently in the third seed in the Western Conference and only two games behind the second seed.
In their last game, a loss to the Boston Celtics, the Kings struggled with turnovers and defense. Kevin Huerter was absent from the game and is questionable for this matchup.
Overall, this game will be important for both teams in terms of playoff positioning and momentum heading into the postseason.
