Kings get some much needed help from a familiar foe, move into No. 2 spot
Lakers lend a helping hand with wins over Warriors and Grizzlies
Welcome to the 2022-23 NBA season, where Sacramento Kings fans are openly cheering on the Los Angeles Lakers on an almost nightly basis.
It started on Sunday when LA hosted the Golden State Warriors. The Champs were on a roll, winning five straight and climbing up the standings where the Kings were holding court.
The Lakers spoiled Steph Curry’s return and handed the Warriors their 31st defeat of the season. At this point, that is what it’s all about. At 38-26, the Kings are watching the loss column.
After another Warriors loss on Tuesday, the Warriors now trail the Kings by six games in the loss column with just 16 games remaining on their schedule. If the Kings play .500 ball the rest of the way and split their last 18 games, the Warriors would need to go 13-3 just to tie Sacramento.
