The Brooklyn Nets will look for their first season sweep of the Sacramento Kings since 2014-15 when the teams meet Tuesday night at Golden 1 Center.

Two of the most improved teams in the NBA meet for the second and final time this season as the Brooklyn Nets visit the Sacramento Kings at Golden 1 Center in California’s state capital.

The Nets (36-36) are looking to end a three-game losing streak as they have opened their season-long seven-game road trip on the wrong foot. Sacramento (34-35) snapped a three-game slide with a 129-102 win over the Chicago Bulls Sunday to open a four-game homestand.

More from Nothin' But Nets

Brooklyn has already exceeded last season’s win total of 28 and is trying for the team’s first playoff bid since 2015 and first winning season since 2013-14. The Kings have also been much better this season, with their 34 wins already seven more than last season’s total of 27.

Sacramento last had a winning record in 2005-06, which is also the last season the Kings reached the postseason.

The Nets also played Sunday, dropping a 119-116 decision to the LA Clippers at Staples Center.

D’Angelo Russell joined Spencer Dinwiddie as the only Nets this season to have at least 30 points and 10 assists in a game, going for 32 points and 10 dimes against the Clippers, who won it on Lou Williams‘ 3-pointer at the buzzer after Brooklyn had stormed back to tie the game with 10 straight points in a 53-second span.

DeMarre Carroll added 22 points, Jarrett Allen had 13 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks and Rodions Kurucs logged three blocks for the Nets.

The Kings took control against Chicago with a big second quarter Sunday, outscoring the Bulls 32-17 to open a 56-40 halftime lead and just kept pouring it on by dropping 73 in the second half.

Marvin Bagley III led Sacramento with 21 points and nine rebounds, Willie Cauley-Stein had five assists, Buddy Hield finished with 16 points and three steals and Harry Giles notched 16 points and three blocks.

The Kings set the scoring mark in the series with a 137-126 win at Piscataway on Dec. 29, 1978. The high for the Nets came in a 132-102 win at East Rutherford on Nov. 14, 1993.

Sacramento had the largest margin of victory between the teams in a 118-82 victory at East Rutherford on Jan. 9, 2003. The Nets won at East Rutherford on Feb. 4, 2002, by a 117-83 count for their biggest victory.
