[9:00 PM] Raptors @ Kings

Who will WIN this matchup?

Toronto Raptors (8-4)

@ Sacramento Kings (4-9)


The line for this game is Raptors by 3.5 points.

Sacramento Kings coach Dave Joerger needed 13 regular season games with his new team before deciding that his best lineup was DeMarcus Cousins and four smaller, quicker players. The Kings will unveil the new lineup when they host the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

Toronto faced the toughest back-to-back in the league with a loss at Cleveland on Tuesday followed by a loss to the Golden State Warriors at home on Wednesday while allowing an average of 124 points. The Raptors held four of their first six opponents under 100 points but surrendered an average of 113.2 in the last six contests.

Cousins echoed the same sentiments as Casey as he implored his team to play with as much effort at the beginning of games as it shows at the end. Cousins finished with 38 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists and three steals in the loss.

Toronto C Lucas Nogueira is expected to join the team on Sunday after missing Friday’s game for the birth of his daughter.

Collison is averaging 15.3 points on 20-of-34 shooting in the last three games.
