Both teams had an almost similar campaign this season. They are placed at the 5th spot in their respective conferences. The Kings have scored at a much better rate than the 76ers. They are ahead in most of the other offensive stats as well. However, the 76ers’ defense might trouble the Kings in the upcoming game.

The status of De’Aaron Fox is still questionable for the next game. In his absence, Domantas Sabonis is a most dependable player for the Sacramento Kings. Sabonis is averaging 17.2 points per game in the current season. On the other hand, the Philadelphia 76ers will rely on Joel Embiid who had a historic night just 2 days ago.
