Ring in the New Year with a fast pace
This is the first of three meetings between the Trail Blazers and Kings this season. The Kings currently lead the league in pace and are currently 19-17. A big reason for their turnaround this year has been De’Aaron Fox leading the way with his speed. After the Blazers blowout win over the Sixers on Sunday night, Damian Lillard told the media that Tuesday’s game in Sacramento will be “a track meet.” CJ McCollum added that Fox has been a key piece to the Kings success. Slowing the second year point guard down will be pivotal to a Trail Blazers victory.
Fourth quarter scoring
Sacramento is also leading the NBA in fourth quarter scoring with an average of 29.3 points. This season the Kings have worn down opponents with their fast pace and they have had some furious comeback wins as well. The Kings are 10-7 at home this season.
For the Trail Blazers, Maurice Harkless (left knee) is probable for Tuesday’s game at Sacramento.
For the Kings, Marvin Bagley III (left knee) is out for Tuesday’s contest.
