Kings vs. Bucks Preview: Odds, Injuries, & Prediction

The Sacramento Kings will look to continue their solid play as they visit snowy Milwaukee on Monday evening to take on the Bucks.

The Sacramento Kings will face a monumental task if they hope to keep their current hot streak alive as they visit the Milwaukee Bucks this evening. The Bucks own the NBA’s best record by a wide margin, having lost just seven games all season. Their key to success is obviously the reigning league MVP, but Giannis Antetokounmpo might not even be available for this contest.

He is officially listed on the injury report as questionable due to personal reasons. While we hope that whatever he may be dealing with isn’t too serious, his absence would open the door for a potential road upset for Sacramento. Or would it? The Greek Freak has missed four games so far this season, and the Bucks were victorious in each.

Players To Watch

If newcomer Jabari Parker is to make his Kings debut tonight, keep an eye on him as an interesting study down the home stretch of the season. He is averaging his highest point total since the 2016-17 season but struggles with his outside shooting touch as well as his defense. He has a player option on his contract for $6.5 million, which would be a relative bargain should Parker amount to a regular rotation player.

He is probably itching to make his debut tonight. He was drafted with the second overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft by the Bucks and spent the first four years of his career in Milwaukee.

Next: Sacramento Kings 2010s All-Decade Team

Prediction:

Greek Freak or not, we see the Kings cooling off in this one.

Bucks 118, Kings 108
