The Kings will be without backup forward Quincy Acy for a second consecutive game with a sprained right ankle.
“He rolled it pretty good,” said Kings coach Michael Malone. “He’s getting better, the swelling’s going down but he won’t play tonight.”
Rudy Gay, who left Friday’s loss to San Antonio with a stomach illness, is in the starting lineup.• The Bucks will be without rookie guard Nate Wolters, who broke his hand against Golden State and will miss the rest of the season.
• Prediction time: The Bucks have competed well lately, and the Kings should not overlook them. But if the Kings play unselfishly and with a sense of urgency, they have enough to knock off the struggling Bucks.
Kings 101, Bucks 90
My record: 42-26 (minus the pregame session missed due to travel issues).
