Every NBA player circles some games on their schedule. Tonight's matchup between the Sacramento Kings and Atlanta Hawks has been highlighted by Kevin Huerter since the schedules were released in August.

Since Huerter's shocking trade to Sacramento, the 25-year-old has taken his game to new heights. Huerter is averaging a career-high 16.7 points per game on a blistering 50% three-point percentage.

Tonight Huerter and the Kings return to Atlanta riding a seven-game winning streak. Meanwhile, Atlanta has split their last eight games thanks to their lack of outside shooting. No team in the league has made fewer three-pointers than Atlanta.

The silver lining is the situation is not permanent for Atlanta. Eventually, Trae Young will return to form, and Bogdan Bogdanovic will overcome his lengthy injury recovery. Not all games carry the same weight, but tonight's matchup in State Farm Arena is important to a lot of people.

Injury Report

Sacramento does not have an official injury report out yet, since they played last night.

Spread: Hawks (-5.5)

Over/Under Point Total: 240.5

Money Line: Hawks (-225) Kings (+188)
