On Thursday, Sacramento Kings assistant coach Jay Triano joined Cattles & Ramie to discuss the home-court advantage at Golden 1 Center, Richaun Holmes’ big game in the absence of Domantas Sabonis and more.

Topics discussed include:

  • Jay shares a story of how Doug Christie told him this current energy by Kings’ fans is like when he played
  • How Mike Brown has made it known from the beginning that they shouldn’t just be happy with wins and always strive to improve
  • “Our focus on the process over the outcomes has really kept us in a straight line driving towards the right direction.”
  • How the team is able to adjust when someone like Sabonis is out
  • What does the team mean when they preach “stay ready”?
  • If Richaun Holmes was able to play more comfortably Wednesday knowing Sabonis was out.
  • What the team is doing to consistently defend the paint?
  • If teams are defending the Sacramento Kings differently once they realize players are shooting more three-point shots.
