The Sacramento Kings host the Denver Nuggets on Nov. 20 in their seventeenth regular season game. This article details three things to watch for in that contest.
The Sacramento Kings begin a three-game homestand this evening against the Denver Nuggets.
With a quick peek at the standings, Denver is currently sixth in the Western Conference, and the Kings are one spot above the cellar. The Nuggets have the on-paper advantage in this contest.
Sacramento has protected its home court recently. The Kings started off with three consecutive home losses against playoff contenders.
The Houston Rockets, New Orleans Pelicans (Boogie’s revenge), and Washington Wizards are not the worst three teams in the league to lose to though. They stormed back with three straight wins against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Philadelphia 76ers, and Portland Trail Blazers or three tough contending teams.
Hopefully, they can continue the trend tonight against the Nuggets.
Last time out, Sacramento traveled to Portland to face the Trail Blazers on Nov. 18. The Kings lost 102-90 after defeating Portland the previous evening.
Below is a highlight video from that game in case you missed or want to relive the action.
With that in mind, here are three things to watch for in tonight’s contest between the Sacramento Kings and the Denver Nuggets.
