The Sacramento Kings take on the Chicago Bulls on February 6, 2017, in Sacramento. This article predicts the Sacramento Kings’ box score for that game.
The Sacramento Kings play the third game of their current six-game homestand tonight against the Chicago Bulls. This is the second and final meeting with the Bulls this regular season. Chicago defeated the Kings 102-99 on January 21st in the Windy City.
Last time out, the Kings did battle with the Golden State Warriors on the second of a back-to-back. Despite the deck seemingly being stacked against the Kings, they prevailed against the Warriors 109-106 in overtime on Saturday. Below is a highlight video from that game in case you missed the action.

Without further ado, below is my Sacramento Kings’ box score prediction for tonight’s contest against the Chicago Bulls.
Box Score Prediction
The Chicago Bulls calling card this regular season has been their defense. They rank 7th in the NBA in defensive rating and 6th in points allowed per game. This is a strong defensive team by almost any metric.
Looking further into the Bulls game, they play at the 23rd fastest pace and have a below average offensive rating by sitting 18th in the league.
This is a Bulls team that will look to slow things down tonight in Sacramento and grind out a win with defense.
DeMarcus Cousins looks poised for yet another monster game tonight. Last time out against the Bulls, Cousins produced 42 points, 14 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, 2 blocks, and 2 three-pointers made in 35 minutes. I see no reason he cannot have another big game tonight in this favorable matchup. Expect to see plenty of Cousins putting a stamp on this contest tonight.
There you have it, my Sacramento Kings’ box score prediction for tonight’s game.
The Bulls provide yet another stern test for the Kings tonight. I am hopeful the Kings can use the momentum from Saturday’s win over the Warriors to dominate the Chicago Bulls tonight in Sacramento.
