The Sacramento Kings and Brooklyn Nets are two teams in very different situations heading into Monday night. The Nets are losers of 11 games in a row and just traded away their second-best player in James Harden.

The Nets get Ben Simmons, Andre Drummond, and Seth Curry in return. Simmons, who has not played at all this season, is unavailable tonight but Drummond and Curry could make their Nets debuts. 

The Kings, in contrast, have been steadily improving and are already reaping the benefits of the trade they made to acquire Domantas Sabonis from the Pacers.

Sabonis has 38 points and 25 rebounds in two games with the Kings. It would appear the change of scenery hasn’t done much to distract Sabonis. Can he keep it going on Monday night?

Kings vs. Nets Prediction and Pick

This is the second time that these two teams will face off against each other this month with the Kings taking the first game 112-101 on Feb. 2. It would mark the last time that Harden suited up for the Nets.

He was held to four points and reportedly asked for a trade before leaving the arena that night. 

Now, without Harden and with Kevin Durant out for the last 14 games, it will be interesting to see if Drummond, Curry, and eventually Simmons will be able to step up and contribute.

However, the Kings didn't get Sabonis for free and had to trade away Tyrese Haliburton and Buddy Hield to get him. This is important because both Haliburton and Hield played a major part in the Kings' win over the Nets last time out. And Sabonis isn’t the only new face in Sacramento. The Kings also added Donte Divincenzo, Trey Lyles, and Josh Jackson in the past week. So far things have been going well with a 4-2 record in their last six games.

Frankly, the Kings are playing too well right now for me to fade them against the Nets. Harrison Barnes and De'Aaron Fox round out what is looking like a very potent starting five. Barnes is coming off games against Wizards and Timberwolves where he combined for 57 points. I like the new look of this Kings team and will be riding them as long as they are hot.

Pick: Sacramento Kings -4.5
