Kings vs. Pacers Preview: Looking for three in a row

The Kings have an opportunity to extend their winning streak to three games.

Coming off their most decisive victory of the season, the Sacramento Kings will look to make it three wins in a row on Sunday afternoon, when they’ll square off with the Indiana Pacers.

The Kings made a franchise-record 22 three-pointers in their blowout 140-110 victory over the Charlotte Hornets. Just about everyone that played for the Kings showed out in a major way contributing to the victory.

The Pacers come into the contest at just 3-7, but clearly, they have more talent and ability than their record indicates. Five of their seven losses have been by 4 points or fewer.

The Kings catch a bit of a break in terms of when they are getting the Pacers as they will be without their leading scorer, Malcolm Brogdon, who has been sidelined recently with a non-COVID-19 related illness. The Pacers will also be without wings Jeremy Lamb and T.J. Warren for the game.

A major key for the Kings in this game will be limiting the production of two-time All-Star Domantas Sabonis, who will likely be a major component of the Indiana offense.

It’s unlikely that the Kings are going to go quite as nuclear as they did from a distance again on Sunday, but nonetheless, Sunday’s matchup is one the Kings should take care of if they are truly an improved team this season.
