Kings Look For Season Sweep of Mavericks
The Sacramento Kings will head to Dallas on Tuesday to take on the Kings at American Airlines Center. While the Kings (36-37) were holding out home that they could find a way to sneak into the Western Conference playoffs, it appears it's about time for the team to let go of the dream. The cherry on top was Sunday night, when Sacramento went out and lost to the Lakers, 111-106. That loss put them 6.5 games back behind the Thunder and Spurs, who currently boast the same 43-31 record, and dropped them back below .500 after rattling off two straight wins. Now, with just nine games to go, the Kings can safely have their sites set on next season after a promising 2018-19 campaign. One of those recent wins, however, came against the Mavericks (29-44) on Thursday, as Dallas has had no answers for Sacramento this season. The Mavericks have lost each of the first two meetings with the Kings this season by a combined 23 points, with their most recent loss coming by 16 points in Sacramento. Dallas, however, bounced back in very impressive fashion Saturday night when they clobbered the Steph Curry-less Warriors by 35 points to cap off a three-game road trip. Prior to that game, the Mavericks had lost three in a row and 10 of their last 11. Luka Doncic recorded his sixth triple-double of the season in that game when he went for 23 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in just 27 minutes.
