The Kings Herald beat writer Brenden Nunes joined Cattles & Ramie Monday to discuss the Sacramento Kings’ chances of clinching a playoff spot tonight, how Sacramento matches up with the Minnesota Timberwolves, and what the atmosphere will look like at the Golden 1 Center. Plus, how important is Kevin Huerter in the postseason?

All that and more on Cattles & Ramie.

“It’s been 16 seasons, 17 years, and it’s been known for a little while now that this was going to be the year to end it. But I think the fans deserve to have this moment of celebrating it, you know, of everything sort of being worth it,” Nunes said on the show Monday. “I hope I get to experience it. I think it would be an amazing moment.”

Topics discussed include:

  • How big of a moment will clinching the postseason be for Kings fans?
  • How will Brenden react when the Kings clinch?
  • The impact of Kevin Huerter’s return to the lineup
  • Can Kessler Edwards continue to have a vital role for Mike Brown?
  • How has Keegan Murray performed as a rookie?
  • Is Davion Mitchell turning the corner on his career?
  • How does Brenden feel about a Kings-Warriors playoff series?
