Philadelphia 76ers vs. Sacramento Kings, NBA Game. Third game of the tour on the road for the 76ers. For now the first two games, as we have said, were defeats. The suffering of the 76ers on the road is pathetic. For now, the expectations are that the team will close this tour with negative results. The Kings this season are not a threat to anyone, but in the last six games at home the team had no mercy against the visitors.
Philadelphia 76ers: It’s almost impossible.
The 76ers don’t know how to play on the road. The record is negative with 9 wins and 23 losses. The last nine games, all defeats. The most recent defeat was against Los Angeles Lakers in a game where we said exactly what was going to happen. The last victory on the road for the 76ers was against the Brooklyn Nets 117-111.
On the road the 76ers are scoring an average of 105.8 points per game, 39.12 FG points, 73.8% free throw shots, 11.41 three pointers, 44.12 rebounds, 24.62 assists. The best quarter for the team is the first with 27.7 points.
The defense allows up to 111.8 points per game, 40.56 FG points, 74.5% free throw shots, 10.69 three pointers, 43.84 rebounds, 23.81 assists.
One of the weaknesses of the 76ers in this four-city tour on the road is the absence of two important figures. Embiid and Simmons will not be available for another two weeks. For now the team must settle for Tobias Harris 19.2 and Al Horford 11.6 points per game.
Sacramento Kings: Strong at home.
The home team lost with the 76ers on the road this season. The record is negative 14-15, but lately the Kings are playing well at home. In the last six games, the team won against Timberwolves, Heat, Spurs, Grizzlies, Pistons and Wizards. The Kings have not lost a game at home since the first day of February.
At home the Kings are scoring an average of 109.2 points per game, 40.55 FG points, 76.1% free throw shots, 12.34 three pointers, 42.97 rebounds, 22.38 assists, 14.28 turnovers. The average in the last is 118 points per game at home.
The defense allows up to 110.7 points per game, 39.41 FG points, 80.1% free throw shots, 12.10 three pointers, 44.38 rebounds and 24 assists.
The team’s points leader is injured, De’Aaron Fox, he will be listed as probable for tonight. Fox is averaging 20.4 points per game. Holmes and Bagley are also injured. Holmes is doubtful for this game against the 76ers.
