Bulls vs. Sacramento Kings at Sleep Train Arena, 9 p.m. Monday
TV: Comcast SportsNet
Radio: ESPN 1000-AM
Update: Rudy Gay (21.0 ppg) gave the Kings a boost when he first arrived in a trade from Toronto. Sacramento went 9-11 in his first 20 games but has since lost seven in a row. The losing skid coincided with an ankle injury to PF DeMarcus Cousins (22.6 points, 11.6 rebounds), who is not expected to play against the Bulls. PG Isaiah Thomas (20 points, 6.3 assists) is playing well, but Sacramento traded away some of its depth. The Kings rank 28th in the league in team defense, allowing 104.6 ppg. The Bulls were absolutely crushed in Sacramento last season, losing 121-79.
Next: Phoenix Suns at US Airways Center, 8 p.m. Tuesday
