Pro Basketball Betting: ATLANTA HAWKS at SACRAMENTO KINGS (3/16)

NBA BASKETBALL — March 16

ATLANTA at SACRAMENTO
(GetThatBet Line: Hawks -4.5, Total 207.5) — Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer has elected to rest Al Horford for this game, and Kyle Korver is out of action with a broken nose. There are also two important members of the Hawks’ rotation – Mike Scott and Thabo Sefolosha – who were already on the shelf, so Atlanta goes into this game relatively thin, and even though they are drawing a bead on the NBA’s best record (currently 52-14) and have limited opponents to 43.3% shooting – fourth best in the NBA – Sacramento is going to push the tempo and is looking for revenge after the 130-105 blowout they suffered a week ago at the Philips Arena. In that one, the Hawks made no less than 20 shots from three-point range. Without Korver however, things may change. And Atlanta was none too proficient at getting to the line in that previous encounter (only four three throws made).
