The Phoenix Suns host the Sacramento Kings this Saturday, the third among their four regular season Pacific Division matchups.

Sacramento (39-26) enters the game tied with Memphis for second in the Western conference. After a four-game winning streak, Phoenix (37-29) is alone in fourth, trailing the Kings and the Grizzlies by 2 and 1/2 games.

The Suns have beaten the Kings in their previous two games on Nov. 28 and Feb. 14, but with just a month left in the regular season, teams in the top-five standings are playing for home court advantage.

Sacramento is on schedule to make the postseason for the first time since 2006, breaking the NBA’s longest playoff drought. And at this late point in the season, the Kings’ success is not a fluke.
