While the Warriors beat the Kings Wednesday night, should Kings fans feel good about how they played? Kevin Danna surely think so.

On Thursday’s edition of Stiles & Watkins, Santa Cruz Warriors’ broadcaster Kevin Danna joined the show to reflect on the Kings-Warriors game the night prior. They also discuss what Kevin likes about Golden State and the Sacramento this season, how fartr both teams can go, and what another playoff series between the two would look like.

All that and more on Stiles & Watkins.

“100% feel good about this game if I was a Sacramento Kings fan. You almost beat [the Warriors] without the De’Aaron Fox on the road. I this team’s winning mid-to-high 40 [games], maybe low 50s in my book,” Kevin Danna said on the show Thursday. “If Domantas Sabonis was a little bit better at the free-throw line, maybe that game is different. I mean, he was really good. Davion Mitchell, if he can be a consistent three point shooter, that makes him that much more dangerous…I really like this team a lot. I don’t think they’re gonna be the three seed…I think they’re gonna be around 48 wins at least. And I would not be shocked if they got to the second round of the playoffs this year at all.”
