The road trip continues for the Sacramento Kings as they take on the injury-reeling Pistons in Detriot tonight at 4 PM PT.

The Sacramento Kings are officially reeling. After Monday’s heartbreaking overtime defeat in Miami, they have now lost 14 of their last 17 games and own the second-worst record in the Western Conference. They are relatively healthy for a chance, but that hasn’t changed the outcome on the court.

They will travel to Detriot for the third of their five-game road trip to take on the Pistons who have troubles of their own. The boys from Mo-Town are 5-13 since December 16th, are without Blake Griffin, and find themselves in the thick of trade rumors.

Last season’s matchup between these two teams in Detriot ended in dramatic fashion with Buddy Hield’s buzzer-beating game-winner. The Kings might need a little more magic to get themselves back on any kind of track for the remainder of the season.
