Boston Celtics vs Sacramento Kings 11/17/2019 – The Boston Celtics (10-1) will be marching toward the gates of the Golden 1 Center with an NBA best 11th straight win on their mind. On paper, the Celtics come as the ideal NBA betting pick because of their hot run and better personnel. However, the Sacramento Kings (4-7) have been really competitive in their last six games and should give the visiting team a run for their money on Sunday’s matinee game.

In Friday’s ballgame at the Staples Center, Sacramento Kings went toe-to-toe with the Los Angeles Lakers and even had several chances to ice the game. In the end, it was the late-game heroics of LeBron James and Anthony Davis that helped the Lakers survive the upset-minded Kings.
