Add Kings and continue. Slowly but surely, regardless of the urgency of a team that could be out of the playoffs after 16 seasons, the Sacramento franchise adds wins, is positive and is placed sixth in the Western Conference with a 19–16 record. also avoid play-in, though that could change in a few months if the pace remains so frenetic. That’s for sure Mike Brown’s team, Coach in recent games by Jordi Fernandez (the head coach has entered the coronavirus protocol), already determined, albeit in a grim way, to leave behind his most recent past and take charge of the future. And, for this it is necessary to leap forward and play the playoffs.

The final stage, let’s remember, in 2006, the Kings were out of class, as coach Rick Edelman with an impeccable reputation led them to the final stage for the last time. That disappointing series against the Lakers in the 2002 Conference Finals, filled with controversy, tension and talentIn the end, it was the downfall of a team that had never been so close to a ring, it was stretched thin and had terrible management in the offices, leading to a large number of absences in the playoffs for the title. Part of the blame, in its most recent phase, was one Vlade Divac, a player in the most illustrious era and the general manager condemned years later, And he, by the way, was watching the game live.

The game was insane: The Kings lost by 19 and still went down by 11 (94–105) in the final period. They lost 101-112 with just over 7 minutes left in a quarter that put them just 2 points away (110-112), And they stayed in tow until they tied it at 122, and later a basket by De’Aaron Fox gave them the lead for the first time in the game. After that, two free throws from Nikola Jokic, a smash from Domantas Sabonis, two points from Christian Braun and two free throws for Malik Monk, who missed the first and scored the second, gave his team the win. Jokic, chosen, did not succeed in the final game and the victory went to the few kings who showed courage and respect to score against the opponent against him. that they lost just hours earlier in this frenzy that the NBA is currently having to repeat games in a row without much explanation than how to adjust the calendar, But, for whose need?

The summit clash between Domantas Sabonis and Nikola Jokic was the best of the match. The driving force behind the comeback, the Lithuanian finished the night with 31 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists., The Serbian, his great rival, with 40 goals, 7 rebounds and 6 assists in the pass. Added to the duel were the Nuggets, a Bones Hyland who put up good numbers (20+5+11), and the Kings, by Malik Monk (33) and Fox (31), who combined with Sabonis to add up to 95 points. A great game, a frenetic finish and a stellar win for some Kings who continue their effort to return to the NBA elite that waits for none., And they know it better than anyone.
