Nationally broadcast games are few and far between for the Sacramento Kings, which means it’s pretty difficult for purple and black loyalists outside of the local regional viewing area to catch their team.

Thankfully though there’s NBA TV, who has picked up the Sacramento Kings at Indiana Pacers game for Tuesday, January 14th after fans voted for NBA TV’s ‘Fan Night’.

Per Sacramento Bee:

The Kings’ game at the Indiana Pacers will be featured on NBA TV after receiving the most votes for the weekly NBA Fan Night. Kings center DeMarcus Cousins, who leads the all centers in scoring at 23.5 points per game, will be matched up with Indiana’s supreme rim protector, Roy Hibbert.

The Sacramento-Indianapolis game beat out the New York Kicks at the Charlotte Bobcats, Oklahoma City Thunder at Memphis Grizzlies and the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Los Angeles Lakers.

It will be the first time the two teams have matched up this season. The Pacers will visit the Kings in Sacramento a few weeks on January 24th, concluding their season series.
