Sacramento (38-37) at San Antonio (58-16) 8:00 pm EDT

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) - The Sacramento Kings look to get back on track as they pay a visit to the Western Conference-leading San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday.

Bonzi Wells scored 30 points and defensive specialist Ron Artest added 19 for Sacramento in Tuesday's 127-101 defeat at Dallas, which snapped a three-game winning streak.

The Kings struggled from the arc, connecting on just 5-of-24 attempts.

Despite the loss, Sacramento still holds a two-game advantage over New Orleans (35-38), which also suffered a setback on Tuesday, for the eighth and final Western Conference playoff spot.

The backcourt duo of Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili combined to scored 49 points in helping San Antonio breeze to a 95-86 victory over Utah on Tuesday. Superstar forward Tim Duncan, who played with flu-like symptoms, collected 11 points and 13 rebounds.

The Spurs, who are riding a four-game winning streak, remained 2 1/2 games in front of Dallas for the top seed and best record in the West.

San Antonio, which posted a 90-89 triumph here on December 17, can complete the season sweep with another victory.

THeRoc SOLID Plan TO BEAt ThE Kings
manage the min.-we have 7 games after tonight until playoffs so its now or never to get our team just right with our rotation and what not

NO TOS- Last night it seemed every possession in the 3rd was a turn over or a bad mistake..take care of the ball

Defense on the 3pt shot-if we take this out of the kings game there is no way we will loose. there legs are just as tired as ours so there should be no excuses

X Factor Timmy-is he ok? will he play tonight? will he be effective?

Spurs 98
Kings 94

i hope im wrong and we blow them out but i see both teams being tired and not playing great defense. but who ever plays the best d will win the game

my key to the game (the "pimped out solid plan" if you will) will be tony. he is going up against mike bibby with brad miller guarding the lane. if he cant score at will, something is wrong. the spurs need to get the ball to tim though if his health allows. this team isnt going anywhere without him.

i hate games like these when we're down by double digits, then make a run lowering it to single digits, then BOOM, its back to an even higher double digit lead. we are playing like ****. DAMNIT, i dont think we're going to win a championship this year, i havent noticed a difference in our playing since the beginning of the season :curse: AND YES I AM MAD :curse: :curse: :curse:

Not so sure about that. The Kings are a completely new team with Ron Artest and this new Kings team plays to the Spurs' weaknesses. I think this new Kings team has a chance of taking that series. Which I hope they do, since the Kings also play to the Mavs' strengths, despite that win you guys had a few weeks back. :p

haha your kidding me right? you think the number 1 seed is going to be upset by the 8th seed. the spurs still won the season series with the kings and the only reason they lost was b/c it was a back to back and the spurs didnt even give it there all. only loosing by 10 is alot better then some other back to back losses. trust me spurs in 5

I got thinking today at work. The spurs would be playing the 8th seed playoff team. So I was thinking that maybe the spurs purposely gave it thier all against the jazz and tried to lose vs the kings because they might want to play the kings rather than the jazz in the first round. So they want to give a 1 game lead in favor of the kings so the jazz have littler chance of making it.

OR.... the spurs are ****ing pathetic on the tail end of back to backs.


yeah, i think that one makes more sense.
