NBA: Gentry feels Kings are on the right track

Sacramento Kings interim coach Alvin Gentry says his team are showing signs of improvement ahead of Monday's trip to New York Knicks.

The Kings can be backed at 37/20 to win in the Money Line, while the Knicks are 10/11 with a -5.5 handicap in the Point Spread.

Kings still struggling

Gentry replaced the first Luke Walton in November after Sacramento's 6-11 start to the season and the interim head coach has been unable to oversee an upturn in form and they have lost 12 of their last 15 games, including each of their last six.

However, the Kings came close to beating Philadelphia 76ers last time out, despite the absence of leading scorer D'Aaron Fox and Gentry remains convinced Sacramento can put a run together as they look to break into the play-in spots.

"If we play that way with that kind of intensity and togetherness, we'll be fine," said Gentry on the defeat to the Sixers, via Sportsnaut.

Fox has missed the last four games with an ankle injury and isn't expected to be fit for the trip to New York.

Play-in spot in the balance

The Kings sit in 12th place in the Western Conference with an 18-33 overall record but they are only three-and-a-half games behind Portland Trail Blazers in the final play-in place.

The Knicks have lost six of their last seven games and are in 12th place in the East, but they can still force their way into the post-season places as they are just one-and-a-half games behind Atlanta Hawks in 10th place.

There are seven other NBA games on Monday, including a meeting between Eastern Conference leaders Miami Heat and an improving Boston Celtics outfit.
