Huerter and the Kings will look to stretch their streak to six games on Friday night when they face the Oklahoma City Thunder at Golden 1 Center. Be sure to tune in for pregame coverage beginning at 3 p.m. PST on Cattles & Ramie.

Topics discussed include:

  • Kevin explains what it was like to travel while under the weather last week
  • Still new to the Kings-Lakers rivalry, Huerter talks about how he’s getting acclimated to the history
  • “You can feel that there is a heightened sensitivity every time we play the Lakers… You can tell those games mean more to our fans.”
  • Huerter says that he has seen the video of the Doug Christie-Rick Fox punch
  • Kevin talks about the play during Wednesday’s game where Russell Westbrook threw the ball off Huerter mid-shot attempt: “That was weird…”
  • Huerter talks about his craftiness in the paint
  • The Kings players heard the ‘Light The Beam’ chants that took place near the end of Wednesday’s win in Los Angeles
  • “It’s been a long time coming. I think Kings fans are ready to stick it back to the rest of the NBA.”
  • Huerter talks about how the team adapted to win against the Lakers without Domantas Sabonis
