The Trail Blazers are 2-1 so far while the Kings are 1-2. The team record is 2-1 in favor of the Trail Blazers.
The Trail Blazers are a better team when it comes to offense, that is for sure. Damian Lillard leads the team in points and assists with spectacular averages of 27 and 5.9 respectively. Jusuf Nurkic leads the team in rebounds with an average of 10.4. All these stats are much higher than those of the Sacramento Kings (see the Kings Team News section).
The two victories of the Trail Blazers have been against the Los Angeles Clippers (134-106) and the Toronto Raptors (101-106). They lost 114-112 to the Phoenix Suns.
Buddy Hield leads the team in points with an average of 15.1. Kosta Koufos leads the team in rebounds with a 5.7. As for assists, Garrett Temple leads the team with an average of 2.6. Garrett, however, only managed one assist in the recent game against the Los Angeles Lakers (which they lost).
The Sacramento Kings are looking forward to breaking their losing streak of two games. In their match against the Lakers, Zach Randolph led the team in points. He scored 16 points and 6 rebounds. Further, Garrett Temple managed 12 points and one assist.
It will be a difficult match against a better team. However, the Kings must come out of their losing streak. If their tally becomes 1-3, then this will be a really bad start, even if it’s just the preseason. We expect them to play better and harder.
The Kings won against the San Antonia Spurs (100-106). Their defeats have been against the Los Angeles Lakers (69-75) and San Antonia Spurs again (93-113).
