The Philadelphia 76ers are looking for a bounce back win against the Sacramento Kings after their most recent defeat to the Raptors.

The Philadelphia 76ers are 11-6 entering their contest versus the Sacramento King who hold a 7-9 record. The Sixers are looking for a victory after their horrible game against the Toronto Raptors in which they gave up a win in the last minutes of the game.

According to ESPN, Kyle O’Quinn won’t be available in this matchup for the 76ers. Both Cory Joseph and Bogdan Bogdanovic are both day-to-day, with Bogdanovic probable. Trevor Ariza, Marvin Bagley and De’Aaron Fox are out as well. Despite all the injuries, the Kings still have one player to watch for and Philly have two in this contest.

Josh Richardson

It appears that things have finally started to click for Josh Richardson in Philadelphia. There’s no denying that he struggled to begin the season, but his play as of late has been phenomenal. In three out of the past four games, he’s scored at least 25 points. In the past four games, he’s averaging 23.3 points on 52.5 percent shooting from the field and 59.3 percent shooting from downtown.

That’s incredible considering he has the season average of 16.6 points on 44.9 percent shooting from the floor and 38.8 percent shooting from behind the 3-point arc. It appears that Brown is more comfortable using Richardson as a primary scoring option during the shooting guard’s recent hot streak.

There’s a good chance that Richardson great play continues as the Kings don’t have any elite perimeter defenders on their roster. If he does play well, then there’s good chance that the Sixers come away from the victory.
