Sac enter the game against Miami on a 3 game win streak having most recently beaten the Clippers in LA as well as upending the Spurs and Denver in consecutive games. The Kings have climbed to 5th in the Western Conference but are still 4 games back on the Clippers who currently occupy 4th spot.

The Heat are on fire having won 7 of their last 9 games including the last 3 straight on their current roadtrip. In the first outing a week ago they demolished the Bucks 123-97 before edging out the 76ers 109-104. Most recently they put the Pelicans to the sword 106-95. Following this game they will face Portland and then Denver before returning home.

Miami beat Sacramento a month ago when these teams met in South Beach, Florida and are getting a 7.5 point start with a host of players out with injury or suspension. It will be a tough ride for the Heat without their best players on the court. 

  • Jimmy Butler, Thomas Bryant and Nikola Jovic are all suspended following an altercation in the Pelicans match.
  • Sacramento are 3rd in the NBA in 3pt attempts averaging 39.8 per game.
  • Miami allow their opponents to shoot an average of 36.9 three-pointers per game 6th most in the league.
  • Sacramento have the 5th best Turnover to Assist ratio averaging 2.2 assists per TO.

Head to Head 


2023-24 Match Results:

Jan 24: MIA 115 - 106 SAC

2022-23 Season Series: 


These teams each took a win on home court last season. Sacramento have covered in 6 of the last 10 whilst the Over/Under is split 5-5

Miami Heat Form


Miami are currently on a roll winning 7 of their last 9. They have taken some good scalps too beating the Bucks, 76ers and the Kings in their first match-up. The problem now is how they will be able to handle the suspensions handed out after the on-court scuffle in New Orleans.

The Heat are one of the more stifling teams in the NBA allowing only 113.4 points per game to their opposition (8th in NBA).

Miami Heat Team News


Jimmy Butler, Thomas Bryant and Nikola Jovic are all suspended. Tyler Herro is listed as questionable with a knee injury. Terry Rozier is also questionable whilst Duncan Robinson has been cleared to play following a shoulder complaint. 

Sacramento Kings Form


Sacramento will be riding high coming into this back to back following a decisive victory over the Clippers in LA. They have now knocked off two top 4 teams in their last 3 games also putting Denver to the sword last Thursday. 

Domantas Sabonis has hit a triple double two games in a row but will meet a tough opponent in Bam Adebayo in the low post.

Sacramento Kings Team News


The Kings had not yet published team news at time of publishing.

Verdict

If the Heat had all their players i would be taking them to win outright but without Butler, Jovic and possibly Herro i don’t think they can make up all those points without the Kings making it difficult. 7.5 is a big line but they have the trend in their favour. Kings to cover and game to go Under with Miami missing some of their firepower.
