Sacramento Kings vs New York Knicks: Prediction (2024)

Sacramento Kings vs New York Knicks: Prediction (2024)

The Sacramento Kings will face the New York Knicks on Thursday at Madison Square Garden. This will be the second and final matchup between the two teams this season, with the Knicks winning the first one last month. The Kings will hope to even the series in the upcoming matchup. The Knicks will be without O.G. Anunoby and Julius Randle but will have Jalen Brunson and Donte DiVincenzo. Josh Hart and Mitchell Robinson are also questionable. If New York goes heavily undermanned, Sacramento could have a great chance of winning. Sacramento will also be without Malik Monk and Kevin Huerter in the game. 

 

Preview 

The Kings are currently in 8th place in the Western Conference with a 44-31 record. They are coming off a 109-95 win against the Clippers on Tuesday. Domantas Sabonis led the team with 22 points, 20 rebounds and nine assists. With injuries to Monk and Huerter, the team is now dependent on De’Aaron Fox and Sabonis for playoff hopes. Both players will have to put up great numbers in the upcoming contest to lead their team to victory. 

On the other hand, the Knicks are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference with a 44-31 record. However, Josh Hart’s health is currently a concern for them. He has been playing with a sprained right wrist and was seen struggling badly in the game against the Miami Heat. If he is ruled out for Thursday, the Knicks will be in big trouble because Anunoby and Randle will also be absent from the game. 

 

Starting lineup 

The Kings will most likely start with De’Aaron Fox, Keegan Murray, Domantas Sabonis, Keon Ellis and Harrison Barnes. 

The Knicks will most likely start with Miles McBride, Jalen Brunson, Donte DiVincenzo, Isaiah Hartenstein and Josh Hart. 

 

Betting tips 

Jalen Brunson has an over/under of 28.5 points for the upcoming matchup. He had 30 and 60 points in his previous two games before scoring 20 points against Miami. 

De’Aaron Fox’s over/under for the upcoming match is 25.5 points. He managed to score 20 points in his previous game. He can go past his points prop in the upcoming game.
