San Antonio Spurs vs Sacramento Kings Preview
This will likely be the first season in decades when the San Antonio Spurs may not make the playoffs. The fans of the team are so accustomed to wins under the leadership of the legendary Gregg Popovich that they are now unable to accept any other result. But they need to understand that the era of Duncan, Parker, and Ginobili is over, and their replacement in the person of Kawhi Leonard left the team two years ago. DeMar DeRozan, who came to replace him, is not exactly the leader of the playoff team in the West, and even Popovich cannot help here. Also, LaMarcus Aldridge didn't go to Orlando, so the Spurs will need a real miracle to mark at least some kind of playoff struggle.

The Sacramento Kings are doing surprisingly well. Before the season was suspended, the team won 7 out of 10 games and played their best basketball. It is unknown how the young leaders of the Kings will return to court after the break, but they can defeat San Antonio. Unfortunately, they will have to do this without forward/center Marvin Bagley III, who will not play until the end of this season due to foot injury.

In this match, my pick is Sacramento Kings. The guests are in the best shape, and their youth are hungry for wins. Except for Marvin Bagley III, all the other Kings players are eager to play. As for San Antonio, LaMarcus Aldridge will not play for them, and this is a critical loss. Moreover, the team is now going through hard times, and even Gregg Popovich is unable to shake them up. Therefore, my prediction is Sacramento Kings wins with -2.5 point spread.
