Do the Kings have the Lakers and Anthony Davis’ number? Could Sacramento make the Western Conference Finals this season? Jorge Sedano certainly thinks so.

NBA reporter/host for ESPN, Jorge Sedano, joined The Drive Guys Thursday to talk about the Kings’ win over Lakers Wednesday and the season sweep. They also discuss why Domantas Sabonis is under-appreciated across the NBA, what the Kings’ identity is, and how far Sacramento can go in the postseason.

All that and more on Sactown Sports.

“I think [the Kings are] a dangerous team. Depending on the matchup, if you could just avoid Denver, and I would say this about almost any team in the West. If you can avoid Denver, I wouldn’t be surprised if you found yourself in the conference finals,” Jorge Sedano stated Thursday. “I can make the case for a number of teams that they could get to the conference finals, I just don’t know if anybody can beat Denver. But, I can make that case [for Sacramento] and I think that you guys are in that category.”
