Kings vs Suns Prediction & Pick
Even though the Suns have the better record, it's the Kings that enter Friday's game as the road favorites. Sacramento's two losses came against loaded Thunder and Magic teams, whereas Phoenix has had a much more favorable Summer League schedule.
I think that the Suns are going to get a taste of reality tonight. Keegan Murray scored 29 points during the Kings' loss to Thunder and I expect him to do what he can to will his team to victory on Friday. If he can hit his shots early on, it might be too much for the Suns to handle.
I'm taking the Kings as 3.5-point favorites at -118 odds.
