Sacramento Kings vs Phoenix Suns: Prediction (Feb 13, 2024)

Sacramento Kings vs Phoenix Suns: Prediction (Feb 13, 2024)

The Sacramento Kings will take on the Phoenix Suns for the fourth time this season on February 13 (Tuesday). The Kings hold a 2-1 lead in the head-to-head clash. Domantas Sabonis and De’Aaron Fox will lead the Kings as they try to clinch the season series. The Suns and Kings have played three entertaining games this season. Their last meeting on January 16 was definitely the most exciting matchup between the two, which the Suns won 119-117. Kevin Durant led a furious fourth quarter rally to stun the Kings. The Kings are 1-3 in their last four games and were defeated 127-113 by the OKC Thunder on Sunday. 

 

Preview 

It looked like the Kings were heading for a win in their last matchup with the Suns. Once Phoenix began to disrupt Sacramento’s free-flowing offense, the Kings lost momentum. They will now be better prepared for the rematch. Vogel’s adjustments in the fourth quarter were crucial to the Suns’ impressive victory. He instructed the defense to keep the ball out of Domantas Sabonis’ hands. This move took Sacramento by surprise and their attack failed. Phoenix will try the same on Tuesday but will expect a quick adjustment from Sacramento. 

 

Starting lineup 

The Kings will most probably start with Domantas Sabonis, De’Aaron Fox, Harrison Barnes, Keegan Murray and Kevin Huerter. The Suns will stick to their usual starting five, consisting of Kevin Durant, Jusuf, Grayson Allen, Bradley Beal and Devin Booker.

 

Betting tips & Prediction 

The over/under point prop for De’Aaron Fox is 23.5, which is below his season average of 26.4 points per game. He hasn’t scored more than 20 points in his last four games. “Swipa”  averaged 15.3 points per game during that span. He might struggle to surpass this mark. Devin Booker has a 29.5 over/under point prop. Unlike Fox, he has been dominating, consistently having 32-point games. He only managed 16 points in Phoenix’s comeback win over Sacramento in their last meeting. “Book” will be determined to score much more in the rematch and get over his point prop.
