The Sacramento Kings will play the Los Angeles Lakers at the Crypto.com Arena to start their six-game road journey. October 29th saw the Kings triumph 132-127 against the Lakers in a thrilling overtime match. In March 2024, the two foes are slated to square off twice more.
LeBron James’s era is anticipated to be nearing to an end in the next few seasons, therefore Los Angeles is hoping for another long playoff push. Last year, they advanced all of the way through the Western Conference Final before losing to the Nuggets in three straight games. The Lake Show started the season a little shaky, but they have now reeled off 3 consecutive victories to climb back to 6-5. These wins were versus the Trail Blazers (116-110), the Grizzlies (134-107), as well as the Suns (122-119). With 24 points in the recent victory over the Grizzlies, D’Angelo Russell became the game’s top scorer. The Lakers as a unit easily surpassed the preseason total of 225.5 points with a combined total of 241.
This season, Sacramento appears to be a strong contender in the crowded Western Conference. They’ll be aiming to improve on their playoff performance from the previous year, when they were eventually eliminated by the Warriors in 7 matches during the initial round. In terms of their current performance, the Kings have defeated the Trail Blazers (121-118), the OKC Thunder (105-98), as well as the Cavaliers (132-120) in 3 consecutive games. The latest victory over the Cavaliers was easily won, as the Kings easily defeated them 132-120. After losing time due to an ankle injury, De’Aaron Fox made a comeback and scored the most points with 28, to lead all scorers. Sacramento was ahead of the opposition in two important statistical areas at the team level: turnovers (10 to 11) as well as the percentage of field goals scored (59.0% to 49.5%).
