Sacramento Kings vs. Detroit Pistons: Starting lineups, odds, and prediction
On February 7, the NBA’s seven-game schedule will conclude with a game between the Detroit Pistons and the Sacramento Kings. The 2023–24 season’s second and final meeting between the two teams is this one. Since last season, the Kings have triumphed in their previous three encounters with the Pistons.
January saw the Detroit Pistons have a respectable three-win month in contrast to their dismal start to the season. They will be looking to win their seventh game on this road trip against the Sacramento Kings, as they are currently on a three-game losing streak.
On the other hand, the Sacramento Kings recently suffered a difficult 26-point setback against the Cleveland Cavaliers. With a 29-20 record, they remain in fifth place in the NBA Western Conference rankings.

Preview: Detroit Pistons vs. Sacramento Kings
Sasha Vezenkov is the sole player for the Sacramento Kings that is listed as injured. He is anticipated to return to the roster by the middle of February and is not anticipated to be available against the Pistons.
Starting players for the Pistons, Cade Cunningham and Bojan Bogdanovic, are listed as “questionables,” and the team’s medical staff will make a determination at the outset of play. With his ankle injury, Isaiah Stewart is projected to miss more time; he should recover in a week or two.
Sacramento Kings versus. Detroit Pistons: Expected starting lineups
In the unlikely event that the Pistons medical staff decides to bench Cade Cunningham, Monte Morris, along with Jaden Ivey, may be promoted to the starting lineup for the first time this season. Ausar Thompson, a rookie, might join Jalen Duren and Kevin Knox II in place of Bojan Bogdanovic.
The Kings’ starting lineup is free of injuries. De’Aaron Fox, Domantas Sabonis, Keegan Murray, Kevin Huerter, and Harrison Barnes should be the starting five as usual.
Sacramento Kings vs. Detroit Pistons: Predictions and odds
For this forthcoming game, De’Aaron Fox has been given an NBA prop of 26.5 points. Fox should go over the mark against the Pistons despite not having done so in the previous five games.
Jaden Ivey has greater pressure to perform well in this game because he has stated that he would prefer not to play for the Sacramento Kings on the night of his draft. He should break his 14.5 points on the NBA prop, and whether he wins or loses, he wants to leave a lasting impression.
