Projected Lineups:


Oklahoma City has played some exciting games the past couple of days. Now, they travel to Sacramento where the 9-16 Kings have been trouble this season. The beat the Lakers and the Trail Blazers in Sarcramento. So, this team isn’t a pushover at home. They sit at 6-4 while at home.

The Kings are led by Tyreke Evans and Demarcus Cousins. However, Marcus Thornton leads the Kings in scoring with 17.3 points per game. Sacramento may rank towards the bottom in a lot of statistical categories, they do rank near the top in rebounding.

Kings coming off a 86-84 loss to the up-and-coming T-Wolves. Oklahoma City is on cloud nine after the last second win over the Golden State Warriors 119-116 on Tuesday night.

Looks like Thabo is out again. Cook will continue in the starting line up. Kings have no real injuries that should effect the game.

Keys to the game

Rebounding for the Thunder will be key in this one. The kings rank seventh in total rebounding and the Thunder are ninth. OKC needs to limit the opportunities to keep the kings in this game.

Russell Westbrook
Westbrook has a lot of ability. He should be announced as an all-star tonight. (This is posted before the announcement) He should dominate Evans. Him dominating is very key if you ask me. I think a double-double out of Westbrook is due tonight.

See the Kings
The Kings are tonight, and a tough divisional opponent, the Jazz are tomorrow night. Focus on the Kings. If you’re not careful, this team will beat you. They might not score a lot or limit teams on the regular. However, at home, they do those things. Do not over look this team.
