The Sacramento Kings prepare to play the Orlando Magic today, as they are in the second game of a Florida back to back. The Kings couldn’t hang on last night in Miami, losing to Lebron James and the Heat in double overtime.
The Kings showed heart against the NBA’s defending champion, and will have to find a way after playing two overtime periods to bring energy to Orlando against a Magic team that is hungry for wins.
The Kings will need to continue to share the ball, and find Marcus Thornton who scored a season high last night. The Kings also had a season high 33 assists last night, and showed what they are capable of.
With the Magic’s most recent trade of J.J. Reddick, the Kings need to take advantage of the Magic’s depleted offense. Sacramento will see their old starting point guard Beno Udrih, who is expected to be in tonight’s lineup.
Sacramento is currently in the middle of a six game losing streak, and if they play like they did last night, they will have a good chance at breaking that streak, and winning only their six road game of the year.
