Facing their second game in as many nights, the Sacramento Kings seek victory in a matchup with the Chicago Bulls. Tonight’s contest marks the first meeting between the two squads this year.

The Bulls return home to face the Kings following a 102-93 loss last night to the Atlanta Hawks. Jimmy Butler led the way, scoring 19 points, but Chicago was pummeled in the matchup. The Bulls trailed by as many as 34 in what became their second-straight defeat. The loss sent Chicago’s record to 22-22 entering this evening’s game against Sacramento.

The Kings, meanwhile, are reeling as well. They’ve lost four-straight games and have won just two times since the calendar flipped to 2017. Their most recent defeat came yesterday evening at the hands of the Memphis Grizzlies, who were led by Marc Gasol’s 28 points. Gasol along with Mike Conley, Zach Randolph and Tony Allen combined to score 77 points in Memphis’ 107-91 victory over Sacramento.

Key Matchup

All eyes will be on the matchup at the three this evening. The Kings will have quite the challenge on their hands facing up against Butler. With injuries to Omri Casspi and Rudy Gay, the onus will be on a combination of players to hold their own against the Bulls All-Star.

Did You Know?

The biggest comeback victory in Kings franchise history came against the Chicago Bulls. On Dec 21, 2009, Sacramento climbed out of a 35-point deficit to defeat Chicago by four points.
