The Sacramento Kings had a productive November as a team. But which three players specifically deserve the most credit during that time?
In October, hectic broke loose in the Sacramento Kings community. Entering the season with playoff aspirations, the team started the campaign winless in five games and even lost their star forward Marvin Bagley III due to a thumb injury.
With tensions rising and the team’s fanbase calling for people’s jobs, the Kings turned the ship around once November came along. The month of November was a solid span of basketball for the Kings as they finished with an 8-5 record which put them back into the playoff picture.
During that time, the Kings were facing tough teams like the Utah Jazz, Boston Celtics, and more in which they were able to win. Even in the games that they lost, against teams like the Los Angeles Lakers, Toronto Raptors, and Philadelphia 76ers, the Kings remained competitive.
It was a collective effort by the Kings that earned them a good November. That being said, there was no doubt that some players on the team stepped up more than others.
When watching the Kings play last month, there were specifically three players that I thought made huge impacts on how the team played, and since the month has ended, I thought it was time to commend those players for having great Novembers.
