Kings Begin 9-Game Homestand Against Hornets

The Sacramento Kings have been so, so much better at home than on the road this season: 8-6 at the Snake Oil Center, 4-20 in away games. That speaks for itself, but it's also reflected in the points margin: the Kings on -2.5 points per game at home and -10.3 on the road ... even after some pretty close road games of late.

So while the Kings haven't been perfect in Sacramento, home is welcome respite. The same can be said of the competition, as the visiting New Orleans Hornets are the only West club worse than the Kings at 9-29. The visiting competition won't all be easy -- the Mavericks, Celtics, Wolves and Grizzlies will all play in Sacramento during the stretch. The Hornets are one of three sure-bet lottery teams that will visit, along with the Warriors and Pistons.

The Kings are 2-0 against the Hornets this season, with a 96-80 home win in early January -- the infamous DeMarcus Cousins suspension game -- and a 100-92 road win in February, one which came thanks to a massive second half comeback. The Hornets are still without Eric Gordon, still relying on Jarrett Jack and Marco Belinelli. This is a strong opportunity for a win for the Kings.
