Toronto Raptors vs Sacramento Kings (By: Miyagi)
Sacrament comes from a heavy loss to the Nets yesterday (123-94) in a match that their starters, all of them, were on a poor night.
The Kings have improved their defense recently as they allow just about 106ppg during their last 8 games but they are not fooling anybody; they did a great job compared to the 116p per game they allow on average this season but they faced teams some of the least efficient (offensively) teams of the league during that stretch like the Pistons, Magic, Suns and even the more efficient but unreliable Hornets.
The Raptors might be missing Kawhi but they have been very good without him as they have missed him in many games and most of those on the road. Kawhi has missed just 3 home games this season, all during the last couple of weeks and the Raptors had no trouble scoring 121 against the Pacers and 119 against the Grizzlies which are the top two defenses of the league.
A lot of crazy things happen in those games with no rest and the Raptors have a challenging game tomorrow, so I would put them on that no-rest list as well, so no players props here, no more BS, but the Raptors should score big against the weak Kings' defense and this game might have a very high score if the Kings' starters won't repeat yesterday's performance.
