Both the Cavs and the Kings have shaken things up with trades bringing in new star players. The Cavs won in Utah on Friday, and Luol Deng scored 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting in his debut for Cleveland.
The victory was just their third road win of the season, and they are now 3-15 overall on the road.
The Kings are coming off back to back wins over Orlando and Portland, and Rudy Gay has really made an impact in those wins. Gay is averaging 23.4 points per game, and the Kings have a winning record since his arrival.
DeMarcus Cousins though is still the man in Sacramento, and he’s averaged 27 points and 13.6 rebounds over his last five games.
These teams met twice in 2013, and the Kings won and covered in both of those games. With Deng still nursing an Achilles injury, and Gay firing on all cylinders, you have to like the Kings as a small home favorite in this fixture.
