Let us now get to the box score prediction for Thursday’s game against the Orlando Magic.
Box Score Prediction
As you can see, I am predicting a massive game for DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins. I love the match-up against Nikola Vucevic. I think Boogie is going to feast on him and Magic Coach Frank Vogel may be forced into playing Bismack Biyombo or Serge Ibaka on Cousins to try to stop the bleeding. Look for DeMarcus to put on a show against the Magic.
You will notice an unfamiliar name listed on the box score for tonight’s contest. Jordan Farmar was re-signed by the Kings on Wednesday. A player has to serve five games on the active roster before he can be moved to the suspended list, so moving Darren Collison to that list frees up a roster spot for Farmar. Expect him to play some minutes as the backup point guard on Thursday. I predicted 12 minutes, but I could see anywhere from 5-15 minutes.
There you have it my predicted box score for Thursday’s contest against the Orlando Magic. You will notice I predicted the Kings to score more points than usual. That is because the Magic have given up at least 103 points in every game this season. Here is to hoping Sacramento can take advantage of that leaky Orlando defense and pick up victory number three on the season.
