Sacramento Kings TV analyst Kayte Christensen joined The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross on Wednesday morning to preview the upcoming back-to-back games against the Portland Trail Blazers, struggling against the Minnesota Timberwolves, and more.

“The reality of the matter is the Kings have struggled against Minnesota all year. Every single game this season, all four of them, were very close. I think they’ve all been seven or less points that they were decided by.”

Additional topics discussed include:

  • Needing to win in Portland against the Trail Blazers because the last week of the team’s schedule includes games against the Denver Nuggets, Golden State Warriors and Dallas Mavericks
  • The Sacramento Kings have struggled against the Minnesota Timberwolves’ length
  • How the Kings’ team psychiatrist is working to bring the guys down because they’re so high and aware of the moment
  • Can this team handle the pressure and limelight that comes with the playoffs?
  • Does Keegan Murray break the rookie three-point record tonight, too?
  • What should Portland do in the offseason with Damian Lillard?
