The surprising Sacramento Kings will go for their sixth win in a row when they take on the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday night. The Thunder had no problems beating up on the Kings last year, defeating them in all four of their meetings.
After losing their first game of the year, the Kings have now won five straight after beating the Phoenix Suns 114-112 in overtime on Friday. They didn't play particularly well in that one, but they did end up with a 60-42 rebounding advantage.
Through six games, the Kings are in the top five in the league in scoring with 105.5 points scored per game. Their best player has been center DeMarcus Cousins, who is averaging 24.2 points, 11.8 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game. Small forward Rudy Gay has also had a good start to the season by scoring 22.2 points per game.
The Thunder lost their third consecutive game on Friday night when they were beaten 91-89 by the Memphis Grizzlies on their home court. They made just three of their 11 free throws in that loss and they turned the ball over 17 times.
Without star Kevin Durant, the Thunder have had a hard time scoring this season, averaging just 90.5 points per game. Point guard Reggie Jackson has averaged 19.3 points per game and nine assists per game so far this season, while power forward Serge Ibaka is averaging 17.7 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game.
