Expectations are changing in Sacramento. No longer are the Kings or their fans content with just making the play-in tournament. The talk of sneaking into the back end of the playoffs is dissipating.
That's what happens when you rattle off another six game win streak and move into third place in the Western Conference standings.
The Kings took a three game win streak into the week and quickly kept the momentum rolling. Sacramento opened the week on the road against the San Antonio Spurs, where for years, you almost expected a loss.
San Antonio took a one point lead into the half, but the Kings came out firing in the third and ran the home team off the court for a 132-119 win.
Harrison Barnes continued his strong play, leading the Kings with 29 points on just 8-of-11 shooting. Davion Mitchell came off the bench to add 19 points and De'Aaron Fox chipped in 23 as Sacramento picked up a fourth straight win.
