Kings Look For Third Straight Win Against Pistons


The Sacramento Kings will look to win their second road game of the season tonight, against a young Detroit Pistons team. Both the Pistons and the Kings have struggled early this season, and have begun to play competitively in their last several games. Both teams come in winning two games in a row, missing their young guard.

Rodney Stuckey is questionable for tonight’s game with a left ankle sprain. Tyreke Evans will travel to Los Angeles to seek a second opinion on his troublesome left knee. Both guards have been playing at an elevated level and play major rolls for their teams.

The Kings have averaged 105 points, and 28 assists in their last four games. The Kings must continue to pass the ball, and play team basketball. Both John Salmons and Isaiah Thomas had big games against the Celtics, and will need to step up with Tyreke Evans out. Aaron Brooks will be back in the Kings lineup after practicing with the team yesterday.

Demarcus Cousins had his first triple double against the Boston Celtics, and will have to be at his best tonight against another young talented center in Greg Monroe. Cousins will need to avoid foul trouble and stay on the floor tonight!
