Sacramento Kings –

No injury problem for Sacramento Kings ahead of this game. Luke Walton will want more discipline and composure from his bench players, though.

IND vs SAC Dream11 Predictions:

Tough call if the first game was anything to go by. Kings, though, were the far better team in the first half and should have seen the game through. That said, nothing can be taken away the fact that Pacers tenacity was the big factor in shaping the match.

Here we back Sacramento Kings to get a positive result.

Surely into football, kicked it for a while, and now beholding! Follows American sports, especially the NBA. And I believe Stephen Curry is under-rated as was Steven Gerrard.
