On the heels of a three-game losing streak, the Sacramento Kings will look to get back on track on Wednesday night when they face the Portland Trail Blazers at Golden 1 Center.

NBC Sports California analyst Kayte Christensen joined The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross on Wednesday morning to reflect on a disastrous road trip for Sacramento, look ahead to tonight’s matchup against the Blazers, and much more.

Topics Discussed Include

  • Kayte gives her take on the recent discussion regarding whether or not the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces could beat a men’s high school or college basketball team
  • “It’s kind of a tired argument. It’s taking something away from a women’s sports team that has dominated over the past two seasons… It’s from people who are searching for relevancy, and in doing so, they have to demean an entire population of female athletes.”
  • Diving into the Sacramento Kings’ ugly two-game set in Houston
  • What happened to the Kings in Houston?
  • “Quite honestly, they got their butts handed to them.”
  • Kayte thinks Sacramento had a lack of respect for the Rockets heading into Saturday’s game
  • “It was stunning how bad they were in Game 2. It’s one of those things where I would prefer them to have to face this type of adversity early in the season.”
  • Kayte says Saturday’s loss was the toughest game that she has ever called during her time with the Kings
  • Previewing tonight’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers
