What you need to know about the Pistons
The Pistons’ recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Sunday after their third straight defeat. They fell 111-99 to the Orlando Magic. Former No. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham had 18 points, seven assists, five rebounds and two steals in the loss. Jaden Ivey also had 18 points in the defeat, while Ausar Thompson had 17 points, seven rebounds and three blocked shots off the bench.
Cunningham is averaging 18.3 points and 9.5 assists while shooting 42.6% from the 3-point line since returning from injury late last month. However, he’s listed as questionable for Wednesday’s matchup in Sacramento because of injury matchup, and his status needs to be closely monitored. Bojan Bogdanovic (calf) is also questionable, while Isaiah Stewart (ankle) is out. See which team to pick here.
What you need to know about the Kings
Meanwhile, the Kings suffered a bruising 136-110 loss at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday. The Kings’ defeat shouldn’t obscure the performances of Domantas Sabonis, who dropped a triple-double on 12 points, 19 rebounds and 15 assists, and Harrison Barnes, who went 6 for 10 from the 3-point line en route to 22 points.
However, it was a tough night defensively for the Kings, who allowed the Cavaliers to shoot 58.0% from the floor and a staggering 23-of-41 from the 3-point line. Sacramento is currently fifth in the Western Conference standings, but the Kings are five games back of the Clippers, Thunder, Timberwolves and Nuggets, who are currently tied at the top of the West and only separated by win percentage points.
