Sacramento Kings and Miami Heat Key Stats
The Sacramento Kings have been an average offensive team so far this season as they are 15th in the NBA with 114.3 points per game scored.
They are passing the ball to the open man at a solid rate as they are eighth in the sport with 27.2 assists per game as shooting guard Kevin Huerter has been doing well at shooting from distance. He is currently tied for 10th in the NBA with 18.3 points and is tied for second in the NBA with Desmond Bane and Donovan Mitchell with 4.2 three-pointers made per game to ignite the offense.
Defensively, there are some issues as the Kings are tied with the Denver Nuggets for 23rd in the league with 117 points per game allowed and are the worst as teams are shooting 48.9 percent from the floor against them. Small forward Jimmy Butler has been shooting pretty well as he is averaging 21.5 points per game, which is his personal highest since the 2016-17 season.
Meanwhile, Miami has been doing pretty well defensively as they are seventh with 110.4 points per game so far. They need to limit three pointers against them as their opponents are making 38.6 percent of them thus far.
The Miami Heat need to wake up offensively as they are 26th in basketball as they are scoring 109 points per game heading into this matchup. A lot of their points are coming from the free-throw line as they are sixth in the sport with 20.4 free-throws made per game.
The Kings are 1-1 so far on the road, while the Heat are sitting at 2-3 to begin the season at home so far. There are a bunch of injuries on both sides of the court as Sacramento will be without point guard De'Aaron Fox while power forward Trey Lyles is considered questionable. while Miami has point guard Tyler Herro listed as questionable while both center Omer Yurtseven and shooting guard Victor Oladipo are ruled out here.
Sacramento Kings vs Miami Heat Betting Prediction
The Miami Heat are having a huge issue like a lot of other solid teams, as they have not gotten off to a hot start this season. Sacramento is a young and scrappy team that is going to make things difficult.
The Heat are struggling to defend the three-point line and Huerter is going to drain a bunch of them in this game. I don't think Victor Oladipo's absence is huge, but that is another scoring option. These teams played on Saturday and Sacramento won outright at home 119-113 and I think we can potentially see more of the same here.
Prediction: Sacramento Kings +6.5 (-110)
