NBA preseason: Suns vs. Kings game preview

Ronald Martinez

The Suns will attempt to slowdown the red hot Sacramento Kings on Monday.

The Sacramento Kings overcame the return of Dwight Howard while sweeping the Lakers in a weekend series, and they will look to win three preseason games in a row against Phoenix on Monday.

The Suns are 2-2 this preseason and are coming off a 107-97 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder last Friday. Wesley Johnson led the Suns in scoring off the bench with 15 points on 6-of-13 shooting from the field, including 3-of-5 from three-point territory versus Oklahoma City.

Phoenix has started Marcin Gortat, Luis Scola, Michael Beasley, Jared Dudley and Goran Dragic in all four of its preseason games this season, and will likely do the same thing versus the Kings on Monday. Gortat and Dudley are the only returning starters on the Suns from last season.

The Kings are led by DeMarcus Cousins who had a team-high 16 points on 7-of-14 shooting from the field versus the Lakers on Sunday.

The Suns lost to the Kings in their preseason game, 102-96, on October 10.
