The New Jersey Nets will attempt to pick up their first three-game winning streak of the season Saturday night when they take on the Sacramento Kings at Power Balance Pavilion. It will be the Nets second of four games on their current West Coast swing.
Avery Johnson's crew kicked off their road trip Friday night with a thrilling come-from-behind victory over the Golden State Warriors. The two Geralds -- Wallace and Green -- combined for 44 points and Deron Williams handed out 20 assists as New Jersey climbed out of a 19 point fourth quarter deficit.
The Kings, like the Nets, are looking towards June's draft and had lost four straight before squeaking past the Utah Jazz, 104-103, Friday night. Volatile DeMarcus Cousins carried Sacramento with 27 points and 14 rebounds and will look for another big game against a thin New Jersey front line.
You can watch the game locally on YES or listen on WFAN 660 with tip scheduled for 10:00 p.m.
The Nets continue their road trip Tuesday against the Los Angeles Lakers.
