Sacramento Kings Daily Fantasy Spin
Kings shooting guard Chris Duarte will miss Sunday’s game and likely several contests after that. He’s dealing with an ankle sprain and is looking to return by the end of the month. Duarte had been averaging 3.7 points and 1.8 rebounds per game in 12.9 minutes per contest before getting hurt.
Kings power forward Domantas Sabonis was incredible in his team’s 135-106 home blowout win over the Nuggets on Friday night. In that contest, the Gonzaga alum recorded a triple-double by notching 17 points, 17 rebounds, and 10 assists. He shot 7 of 9 from the floor, 1 of 1 from long range, and 2 of 2 from the charity stripe. Sabonis leads the NBA in rebounding with 13.2 boards per game this year.
Oklahoma City Thunder Daily Fantasy Spin
Newly acquired Thunder small forward Gordon Hayward won’t play against the Kings on Sunday. Hayward is nursing a calf injury and will likely make his Oklahoma City debut after the All-Star break. In 25 games for Charlotte this season, Hayward averaged 14.5 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game.
Oklahoma City point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was solid in his team’s 146-111 road loss to Dallas on Saturday night. In that game, the Kentucky alum posted 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists. Gilgeous-Alexander is third in the NBA in scoring this season with 31.1 points per game.

Kings vs. Thunder NBA Prediction:
The Thunder have been superb against the number in many different relevant scenarios this season. Oklahoma City is 17-9 ATS at home this year and 21-15 ATS as a favorite in 2023-24. What’s more, the Thunder are 31-25-2 ATS after a loss since the start of last season, and 48-36-4 ATS against conference opponents in that same span. And finally, OKC is 59-44-2 ATS in non-division games since the beginning of last season. That’s the fourth-best mark in the league over that stretch. I like the Thunder to get back on track and win this contest by more than a possession at home on Sunday.
