3rd Quarter Report

This match looks nothing like the tight 128-127 margin from the Clippers' win over the Kings in their previous head-to-head back in March. The Clippers have a bit of a cushion as they currently lead the Kings 102-81.

The Clippers came into the matchup with some extra motivation after the loss they were dealt the last time these two teams faced off. We'll see if they're able to flip the script or if it'll just be more of the same.

What to Know

The Kings will be in front of their home fans on Wednesday, but a look at the spread shows they might need that home-court advantage. Having just played yesterday, they will get right back to it and host the Los Angeles Clippers at 10:00 p.m. ET on November 29th at Golden 1 Center. The Kings will be strutting in after a victory while the Clippers will be stumbling in from a loss.

On Tuesday, in a tight contest that could have gone either way, Sacramento made off with a 124-123 win over Golden State. 124 seems to be a good number for the Kings as the team scooped up a victory with the same number of points in their previous game.

The Kings got their win on the backs of several key players, but it was De'Aaron Fox out in front who scored 29 points along with 9 rebounds and 7 assists.

Meanwhile, the point spread may have favored the Clippers on Monday, but the final result did not. They fell 113-104 to Denver. The Clippers have struggled against the Nuggets recently, as their matchup on Monday was their eighth consecutive lost matchup.

The Clippers' loss shouldn't obscure the performances of Kawhi Leonard, who scored 31 points along with 8 rebounds, and Ivica Zubac who dropped a double-double on 23 points and 14 rebounds.

The Clippers struggled to work together and finished the game with only 18 assists. They were dismantled by their opponents in that department as the Nuggets racked up 28.

Sacramento is on a roll lately: they've won eight of their last ten matchups, which provided a nice bump to their 10-6 record this season. As for Los Angeles, their loss was their third straight at home, which bumped their record down to 7-9.

While only the Clippers took care of their fans the last time they played, neither team managed to cover. Looking forward, the Clippers are the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by 1.5 points. Sacramento might be worth a quick bet since they're sitting on a five game streak of covering the spread when playing as the underdog.

This contest is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: The Kings haven't given up the ball easily this season, having only averaged 13.1 turnovers per game. However, it's not like the Clippers struggle in that department as they've been averaging only 13.9 per game. Given these competing strengths, it'll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.
