Sacramento Kings (9-20) at 76ers (14-15)
Tuesday at 7 p.m., at Wells Fargo Center .
The Sixers will look to avenge a 109-108 loss to the Kings in November. That setback snapped their five-game winning streak. The Sixers were flat in the first half, and paid for it.
"The first half stunk," Sixers coach Brett Brown said following that game. "And we didn't execute anything down the stretch. We didn't deserve to win."
Rookie guard De'Aaron Fox made the game-winning basket over Robert Covington with 14.1 seconds left. The Sixers still had an opportunity to win the game. But Joel Embiid misfired on a last-second jumper. The Kings scored the final seven points of the game. Embiid had his shot blocked twice by Willie Cauley Stein before missing at the buzzer during that stretch.
