Sacramento Kings at Milwaukee Bucks
Sacramento Kings Preview
A run of six victories in eight games has given the Sacramento Kings plenty of momentum heading into a road matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday. The Kings won three consecutive games, all at home, including Saturdayâ€™s convincing 122-102 victory over the San Antonio Spurs when Buddy Hield scored 31 points off the bench.
Hieldâ€™s move out of the starting lineup has done wonders as he has averaged 23.1 points over the past eight games in the reserve role. He went 9 of 10 from 3-point range Saturday and became the fastest in NBA history to hit 800 3-pointers. He did it in 296 games, nine games faster than Stephen Curry.
Milwaukee Bucks Preview
The Milwaukee Bucks have won four consecutive games and 13 of their last 14. Plus, they have a seven-game winning streak against the Sacramento Kings, their opponent at home on Monday. The Bucksâ€™ latest victory came Saturday at Orlando in a 111-95 triumph when Brook Lopez had 23 points.
Giannis Antetokounmpo scored just 18, but still did his part, nearly recording a triple-double with 18 rebounds and nine assists. He fell short in his bid to become the first player in NBA history with at least 30 points, 15 rebounds and five assists in six consecutive games. George Hill (hamstring) has missed five consecutive games.
