The Kings were pretty good in their loss to the Lakers last night, but need to protect the ball a lot better after committing 18 turnovers. They come up against a side that is usually very good on the defensive end and has a red hot Trae Young right now.

The Hawks have won just one out of their last five, but their point guard is lighting it up, and they get the Kings on a back to back.

The Hawks are every chance to win this match.

Prediction – Atlanta Hawks (Win) ⭐
