The Kings obliterated the Rockets in the fourth quarter of their most recent game, outscoring them 41-20. They drained 19 threes in the win – a common theme for them this season. The Kings averaged the seventh-most threes per game (13. 5 3PM/Game) while maintaining the fourth-highest overall shooting percentage (49%). Those strong efficiency numbers propelled Sacramento to the highest-scoring offense in the league this season (119. 2 PPG).
5 PPG. He leads the team in rebounding with 8. 6. As one of the most dangerous offensive rebounders in the NBA, Sengun is a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses. With Porter Jr. leaving earlier, Sengun recorded a triple-double with 10 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. He’s flashed his playmaking throughout the year but hasn’t yet been given the reigns to fully realize his potential.
Jalen Green has had an up-and-down sophomore campaign as he has upped his scoring to 21. 3 PPG but is shooting less efficiently. With just a 40% field goal percentage and a 32% three-point percentage, Green is the definition of a volume scorer. That being said, he is just 20 years old and remains a tantalizing prosecute with sky-high potential. Despite shooting just 3/12 from beyond the arc on Wednesday, Green still finished with 26 points in their loss to the Kings. He will likely be given a much larger role tonight with Porter Jr.
Although it hurts on paper, the absence of Porter Jr. could actually be a blessing in disguise tonight if it leads to increased usage for their talented young big man.
