The Sacramento Kings continue to hold their own against the best teams in the NBA.

Sacramento, who holds an 8-5 record against the top four teams in the Western Conference this season, finally broke through in the Eastern Conference following Tuesday’s convincing 129-94 win over the Milwaukee Bucks at Golden 1 Center.

NBC Sports California analyst Kayte Christensen joined The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross on Wednesday morning to share her thoughts on why the best teams bring the best play out of this Kings team and much more.

When is the next Sacramento Kings game?

Sacramento will continue its six-game homestand on Wednesday night when they complete a back-to-back against the Los Angeles Lakers.

De’Aaron Fox’s career-high-tying 44-point performance on March 6th led the Kings to a 130-120 win over the Lakers at crypto.com Arena in a game that started with Sacramento falling behind by 19 points during the first quarter.
