Final Thoughts: Overall, I believe that the Kings will finish 3-2 in their five game road trip in the East, giving them an overall record of 7-9. If the Kings are able to make my predictions a reality, that would be huge for the purple and white. Even though it still puts the Kings under .500 for the season, considering that they were just 1-7 around a week ago, I think the Kings and their fans will be content with 7-9.
These next fives games for Sacramento are vital to their season. For teams to be successful in the NBA, winning games on the road is essential. If the Kings can start to show they can beat solid competition away from Sleep Train Arena starting this week, it would show massive growth for a team that is striving for playoff contention.
Hopefully the growing process for Sacramento continues to progress with a victory tomorrow in Atlanta. (Game Preview coming soon)
