On the Sacramento Kings podcast with Tony R:
#1 The Sacramento Kings are having a bad go of it dropping their eighth straight game to the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night at Golden One Center in Sacramento and it wasn’t even close 123-111.
#2 Tony, this is a different Kings team that you might remember beat a team like Golden State 141-119 at Golden One back on Mar 25th and the Lakers 123-120 back on Mar 3rd. The Kings have evolved but in the wrong direction.
#3 The Kings last night just couldn’t contain the Wizards top scorer Bradley Beal who finished with 31 points and the Kings defense just couldn’t stop the Wizard offense losing by 12 points.
#4 Once again the Kings De’Aaron Fox did a lot of the heavy lifting leading the Kings scoring with 33 points. The Kings actually need another player with Fox’s caliber to balance out the offense.
#5 The Kings are on back to back nights and play their second game in as many nights tonight against the Phoenix Suns. The Suns are on a three game win streak and defeated the Miami Heat on Tuesday night in Phoenix 106-86. Set the stage for tonight’s game in the Valley of the Sun.
