When the 2022-23 Sacramento Kings schedule was released back in August, it was another reminder of the tall task ahead of the team in their quest to end the playoff drought. Ten of the first twelve games on the Kings’ schedule were against projected playoff teams, including three contests against the World Champion Golden State Warriors.
After four games, panic set in with plenty of Kings loyalists, but the recovery has been nothing short of spectacular. With Sacramento’s 122-115 victory over Steph Curry and crew on Sunday, the Kings now sit at 6-6 on the season. .500 seemed like a distant dream just two weeks ago.
A theme develops in every post game media session. This win over the Champs showed the growth of this year’s version of the team, but it was also a moment where the players paid tribute to their head coach Mike Brown and his first win against his former team.
“It felt really good, you know, same scenario, fourth quarter we’re up,” Domantas Sabonis said. “Finally we finished the game, finished the quarter, and got this one for Mike.”
“We got this for Mike.” -Domantas Sabonis on getting a tough win against Mike Brown’s former team
