Sacramento Kings vs Player Special by EliteTips
Great matchup here for the rookie of the Sacramento Kings De'Aaron Fox as they will face the struggling Phoenix Suns and I like the player props offered by bet365 in which we need more than 23.5 points, rebounds and assists for this very promising rookie.
I heard a lot of things about Phoenix tanking(losing on purpose in order to get the first draft pick of the next season) this season and I believe that is true, for what I have seen about this team they play like they dont really want to play and now Eric Bledsoe will not form part of the lineup and he might not even play for Phoenix the rest of the season, what does this have to do with Fox? Well the Point Guard position in Phoenix is vacant and Fox is a Point Guard so if Bledsoe does not play who is going to defend the athletic rookie of the Kings De'Aaron Fox? The backup.
The thing is that the backup of Bledsoe is Ullis but he has not played much this season and coach does not seem to like him a lot, Mike James who is the third string Point Guard might start tonight and either way either PG is not that good and they will struggle against Fox who is to me one of the best rookies of all of the drafted players this season.
Now lets look at the numbers. Fox is averaging so far in the season through 3 games played 13.7 points, 5 rebounds and 5.3 assists for a total of 24 points + rebounds + assists, just what we need here and the matchup is even better against Phoenix who is the worst defense in the NBA. The only downside is that he will be sharing minutes with George Hill but I think that 26-30 minutes should be enough for him to reach this total.
