On Sacramento Kings podcast with Jeremiah:

#1 Wednesday night the Sacramento Kings (46-30) traveled to Portland to take on the Trail Blazers (32-44). The Kings ended the NBA’s longest playoff drought with a 120-80 win over the Trail Blazers. The win in Portland locked down a spot in the post-season.

#2 After two quarters the Kings were five of 24 from the perimeter. They were shooting at 20.8% on three pointers.

#3  This was the largest lead for the Kings in the game but Portland refused to go away. The Trail Blazers closed out the first half with a 14-6 run and just like that had pulled to within four points 50-46.

#4  The three’s were falling for Sacramento already clocking 14 with 8:41 left in the game. They would finish with 18 triples and win by a whopping 40 points. Do you see the Kings being the kind of team going into the post season that can go more than two rounds from what you’ve seen in the regular season.

#5 Jeremiah, after what you’ve seen on Wednesday with the Kings winning by 40 the Kings are deep on offense and Sabonis and Fox are forces to reckon with. How do you see this rematch Friday night in Portland?
