The Sacramento Kings look to rack up their first three-game winning streak of the season in a visit to the Philadelphia 76ers early Sunday morning. The Kings have won two straight, beating the Bucks in a contested game on Wednesday before walloping the Pacers on Friday. The Kings have gone 3-1 on this road trip, losing by 40 to the Bulls but hammering the Wolves before that.
The last time the Kings met the Sixers was just 10 days ago in Sacramento. Philly won by 22.
But the Kings have Tyreke Evans this time, and sincere hopes of continuing to fight for a 25-win season. Anything less would objectively be seen as regression, which has been the conventional wisdom since the team got off to that awful start. With 11 games remaining, the Kings need to win six to hit 25. Sunday's Sixers game is, unfortunately, one of the more winnable games remaining. That's not saying much, as B-Ref's win probability gives the Kings a 21 percent likelihood of winning.
