Game Preview


On January 16 at Footprint Center, the Sacramento Kings (23-16) will play the Phoenix Suns (21-18).


The Sacramento Kings have been playing mediocre basketball lately, winning 4 of their previous 7 matches altogether. However, they are looking to snap a 2-game losing streak after falling short against the Bucks 143-142 in overtime on the road in their last game. Leading the team in scoring with 32 points and 5 assists on 12-of-26 shooting was De’Aaron Fox, who was supported by Malik Monk’s 28 points. Notably, the Kings have defeated their future opponent in each of their last 4 meetings. With an average of 118.2 points per game, Sacramento’s offense is presently ranked 8th in the NBA, while Phoenix’s defense is ranked fifteenth, giving up 114.4 points per game. The Kings show a 6.4 point per game disparity in their 2023–24 season between their home court (121.3) and away court (114.9).



The Suns demonstrated in their last game that outshooting the opposition by a whopping 15.6% makes winning slightly easier. By a score of 127-116, they defeated the Portland Trail Blazers. Bradley Beal finished with 23 points, and Devin Booker added 34 points, 7 assists, and 6 rebounds in yet another fantastic performance. After 2 games, Beal has scored 60 points, going 12 for 16 (75%) from outside the arc. Despite missing a lot of time and only participating in 15 games this season, Beal has set career highs in field goal percentage (51.2%) and 3-point percentage (42.4%). But when Beal, Booker, and Kevin Durant have played together, they have significantly underperformed compared to expectations. Damion Lee and Bol Bol, are both out for the Phoenix Suns. In their all-time head-to-head record, the Suns have 143 victories to Sacramento’s 104. The Suns will have to bring their best performance if they want to win this game.
