NBA FREE PICK: Take Sacramento. According to latest NBA trends, Sacramento is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Pacific, favorite is 4-1 ATS last 5 in series and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference. Phoenix is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game, 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

The Sacramento Kings (26-46 SU, 32-38-2 ATS, 42-28-2 O/U) are coming off a 105-98 road win over Golden State getting 9 on Wednesday. Phoenix has lost four straight including a 103-88 defeat at Utah, getting 13.5. The Kings are looking to win back-to-back road wins for the second time this season. They'll have some help from Phoenix, who has lost four straight and eight of the last nine. Phoenix is basically playing for next season as they've been experimenting with new lineups. On Wednesday, they started rookie Kendall Marshall at the point. He did have 13 assists but five turnovers in their loss to Utah. For whatever reason, Goran Dragic (14.4 points. 7.2 assists) did not play. Now Marshall will have to deal with Isaiah Thomas, a much quicker point guard who put up 31 on the Warriors (seven three-pointers) on Wednesday. Thomas had 25 the previous game against Philadelphia on March 24. Sacramento Tyreke Evans (15.5 points), John Salmons (9.2 points) and Marcus Thornton (13 points per game) give the Kings several options from the perimeter. Throw in center DeMarcus Cousins (20.3 points, 10.7 rebounds vs. the Suns). That's too many options for the Suns to keep up with.
