The Sacramento Kings will attempt to avoid their second 0-3 start in four years when they face the Indiana Pacers on Saturday.
The Sacramento Kings face the Indiana Pacers on Saturday still in seach of their first win. 0-2 in their first two games, the Kings will hope to keep building on recent history against the Pacers. They've won their last two games against the team, including a meeting in January that saw Sacramento pick up the win while outscoring Indiana 47-38 in the second half.
Consistency looks to be an early issue for the Kings. Tyreke Evans led the team in their opener, putting up 21 points in 39 minutes, but the second game saw him collect just six points in 30 minutes. Isaiah Thomas was the leader in Game 2 with 20 points.
The Pacers opened their season with a win, but followed it up with a loss against the Charlotte Bobcats, becoming the first team to lose to the Bobcats in 23 games. That may have had something to do with the absence of Danny Granger, who is out indefinitely with a sore left knee.
