SACRAMENTO KINGS (19-24) 107.5 ORtg (#16), 110.7 DRtg (#26), 92.4 Pace (# 9)
BALLHYPE | NBA.com PREVIEW
Each team has a distinct advantage on paper.
- Charlotte's point guards have been some kind of terrible. Raymond Felton can't shoot a Red Rider this season, and Jeff McInnis couldn't score at Mustang Ranch. (R.I.P.) Sacramento's defensive issues start at point guard, so you'd think preventing a 25-point outburst from Felton or an efficient 15 points (or so) from McInnis wouldn't be difficult.
- Gerald Wallace and Emeka Okafor might combine for 42 putback dunks. Sacramento's among the worst defensive rebounding teams in the league; Okafor is a killer rebounder on both ends and Crash's always good for a showstopper or three.
7 p.m. germs and madams. Go Kings.
