The Beam Team finally got a taste of defeat after a seven-game winning streak, and face an even tougher challenge now in the Boston Celtics. Will the top team in the Eastern Conference hand the Sacramento Kings another slice of humble pie? Catch the game at 9:00 AM Manila time on Saturday, November 26.

Away: Sacramento Kings (10-7, 4-4 Away)

Projected Starting Five:

  • PG: De’Aaron Fox
  • SG: Kevin Huerter
  • SF: Harrison Barnes
  • PF: Keegan Murray
  • C: Domantas Sabonis

The Sacramento Kings finally ran out of gas against the Atlanta Hawks on the second night of a back-to-back. They had a tough shooting night from beyond the arc, hitting only 9 of 30 of their long-range attempts.

A bright spot was Malik Monk, who shot 12 of 18 from the field on the way to 27 points, four assists and two steals, and he’s starting to show that he’s an excellent fit as a scoring spark plug off the bench.

The Kings will need a better effort from De’Aaron Fox, who came back down to earth a bit with 18 points, five rebounds and five assists while shooting 7 of 20 from the field and 1 of 5 from three. Kevin Huerter, who was shooting the lights out before the Hawks game, is also looking to rebound after shooting 4 of 10 from the field.

Domantas Sabonis will need to assert himself in this game if the Kings will stand a chance to win. That’s easier said than done, considering Grant Williams, Al Horford and Luke Kornet will be around to bother him.

The Kings are 6-2 ATS as the away team this season.


Home: Boston Celtics (14-4, 7-1 Home)

Projected Starting Five:

  • PG: Marcus Smart
  • SG: Jaylen Brown
  • SF: Jayson Tatum
  • PF: Grant Williams
  • C: Al Horford

At this point in time, the Celtics are looking like the best team in the NBA. The 2022 NBA Finalists are 9-1 in their last 10 games and Jayson Tatum has been playing like someone who wants to win the MVP award. Tatum had 37 points, 13 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in the Celtics’ last game, a 125-112 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.

Jaylen Brown was also dominant in that game, with 31 points, four rebounds, four assists and two steals along with a 13 of 18 shooting performance. If those two are locked in, the Kings don’t have the defensive personnel to stop them. 

Boston are 5-3 ATS at home this season.


Spread: The Kings will have had some rest, and while they may not win the game, the +8 looks decent.

Over/Under: The over 237.5 looks good.
