Kings vs Heat is the final Scrimmage game of the 1st day of the NBA restart and here we look at the team news and TV Schedule of the game.
The Bubble restart is scheduled for 30 July but before that, each team will play three scrimmage games from July 22 to July 28.
Today four games are slated to be played and among that the last game is between Kings and Heat, two teams that would be raring to go in Orlando.
Kings vs Heat Scrimmage preview
NBA teams will step on the court after four months. The balanced Miami heat will take on the injury-ridden Sacramento Kings.
Both the sides can make it to the playoffs, if they perform well in the remaining seeding games. And thus both teams would love to get into their stride before the NBA restart officially happens on the 30th of July.
Miami Heat is the No.4 seed team in the Eastern Conference and the Kings sit at the No. 11 spot in the Western Conference.
Heat would be the favorites going into the game, but because it is a Scrimmage game, expect both teams to go a little light on defense. Hence, in a high scoring game, things could go either way.
