The Clippers have struggled against the Warriors, but, despite the Clippers stealing game two, could the Sacramento Kings have provided a more entertaining series?

Without a doubt, the Sacramento Kings would have a zero percent chance of wining a playoff series against the Warriors this season. That said, this would be one hell of a fun series.

The Kings and Warriors played some of the most entertaining games in the NBA this season, despite the Kings going 0-4 on the season. In their four losses, however, the Kings lost by a total of 12 points. That’s an average margin of defeat of just three points or one possession.

You want lightening fast play and a barrage of three pointers that just won’t end? This would be your series. In fact, had the Kings, or should they in the future, played the Warriors, it’s incredibly likely the two teams would set playoff three-point records — something they already did in the regular season.

The Clippers’ have been absolutely blown out at times, but they did have the greatest single-game comeback in playoff history against the Warriors, which has given this series a little more excitement. Still, it’s hard to watch this series and not feel as though the Sacramento Kings could’ve provided a bit more excitement in a seven-game series.
