Dallas Mavericks vs Sacramento Kings by QuidProQuo
Injuries are still lingering for the Kings and Shawn Marion is going to skip game tonight, I think the line is too high. Rudy Gay is expected to play but he tweaked his foot a little bit more last game and Cousins is maybe going to play, but he hasn't played in a while and he won't be 100% offensively even if he plays anyway.
Both teams are not playing any defense and finally both coaches and players are starting to pay attention to it. So I think tonight they will really try to defend more.
Coach Michael Malone even said "I told our team afterward that I am going to start playing guys who are willing to defend, I can no longer be a hypocrite. I've been a hypocrite the whole year. I got the job in June and I preached defense and that's what I believe in. We're one of the worst defensive teams in the league."
Also, both Dirk Nowitzki and Isaiah Thomas said after last games how they're not happy with the way they and their teams play defensively and with all these injuries and preaching about defense, I expect this game to stay in low 200s...
