It is hard to remember such an exciting finish to a regular season than this. With two games left to play 1st through 3rd are separated by 1 game, 4th and 5th likewise. 6th and 7th are also a game apart while 8th through 10th are on the exact same record with tie-breakers deciding the order. 

Sacramento are precariously perched at 8th leading the 3 team train of 45 wins and 35 losses that are all vying for a double shot at the Play-In. They are though in a very different form trend right now than the Suns having lost 4 of their last 5 games coming into this matchup.

Phoenix on the other hand stopped a two game losing skid at home last start against the Clippers and have won 8 of their last 12 games. They have arguably the toughest finish of the teams having to play the Kings then the Timberwolves both on the road. 

But they are a more experienced team than the Kings and have one of the league's best scoring duos in Kevin Durant and Devin Booker at their disposal. Defending both of these guys while also keeping an eye on the Suns wingmen will be a difficult task for the Kings who are currently struggling through injury. Suns will win outright and cover as 5 poinit favourites.

  • The Suns are 5th in the league in FG% hitting at 49.2% on the year
  • The Kings allow their opponents to shoot 48.2% from the floor putting them at 21st in ranking
  • Phoenix average over 30 points across each of the first three quarters of games all top 6 rankings
  • Sacramento have average or below average defensive numbers when broken down into quarters

2022-23 Season Series: 

The series was split 2-2 with Phoenix taking two early wins, one on the road and one at home before Sacramento took two to finish the season. In the last 10 games the record is 5-5 with Sacramento covering 7 of 10. The Over/Under is also 5-5.

Phoenix Suns Form


Devin Booker is on fire at the moment. Earlier in the month he scored 52 at New Orleans as well as 40 at home against the Cavs. Whilst Durant has cooled letting his teammate shine he is still producing great numbers on the season contributing with 27.2 pts per game on 52% shooting.

Phoenix have at times struggled on the road this year but have recently had solid wins against Denver and New Orleans showing that they can match it with the big guns when they want to.

Sacramento Kings Form


Unfortunately for Sacramento their good early season form has taken a massive hit with injuries affecting the second half of their season. Malik Monk was on track to be 6th man of the year before being struck down with injury and with Kevin Huerter’s perimeter shooting missing, defences are more easily able to plan for the likes of Sabonis and Fox.

The Kings defence is average allowing 115.1 points per game to their opponents putting them at 17th in the league
