Last Wednesday, even if it wasn't a dominant performance, Sacramento beat the Nuggets 102-98. The Kings were down 62-46 with 8:50 left in the third quarter but they still came back for the handy four-point win.

De'Aaron Fox was the offensive standout of the game as he scored 30 points along with eight assists and eight rebounds.

Meanwhile, the Spurs and the Mavericks couldn't quite live up to the 243-over/under that the experts had forecasted. San Antonio found themselves the reluctant recipients of a 116-93 punch to the gut against the Mavericks last Wednesday. The Spurs got off to an early lead (up 15 with 5:01 left in the first quarter), but sadly they weren't able to maintain that momentum.

Victor Wembanyama put forth a good effort for the losing side as he almost dropped a double-double on 26 points and nine rebounds.

Sacramento's win ended a three-game drought on the road and puts them at 31-23. As for San Antonio, they have traveled a rocky road recently having lost eight of their last nine matches, which put a noticeable dent in their 11-44 record this season.

This contest is shaping up to be a blowout: The Kings just can't miss this season, having made 48.2% of their shots per game.

Given the Kings' sizable advantage in that area, the Spurs will need to find a way to close that gap.
