What to Know
The Sacramento Kings are staying on the road on Wednesday to face off against the Detroit Pistons at 7 p.m. ET at Little Caesars Arena. Sacramento staggers in eager to bring about an end to their five-game losing streak.
The Kings fought the good fight in their overtime game against the Miami Heat on Monday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 118-113. Sacramento lost to Miami 118-113. Sacramento’s defeat shouldn’t obscure the performances of PF Nemanja Bjelica, who had 22 points in addition to six boards, and G Buddy Hield, who had 20 points and seven assists along with seven boards.
Meanwhile, Detroit was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Monday as they fell 106-100 to the Washington Wizards. PG Derrick Rose (21 points) was the top scorer for Detroit.
The Kings got away with a 103-101 win when the two teams previously met in January of last year. Will they repeat their success, or do the Pistons have a better game plan this time around? We’ll find out soon enough.
