The Sacramento Kings are in Charlotte, facing the Hornets for one of those historically bad-for-the-Kings early starts. But I say historically because the Kings took care of business in an early start (a weekend early start, no less) against the Miami Heat on Saturday.
The injury report is clear for the Kings, and they will only be without Keon Ellis, Neemias Queta, and Chima Moneke, who are all currently with the Stockton Kings. As for the Hornets, they’ll be without LaMelo Ball (
Afraid Of Fox Left Ankle Sprain), and both terry Rozier and Cody Martin are listed as Questionable.
When: Monday, October 31, 4:00 PM PT
Where: Spectrum Center, Charlotte, NC
TV: NBC Sports California
Radio: Sactown Sports 1140
For Your Consideration
Halloween Frights: Listen, I am scared. It is Halloween and there are terrifying things all around us, but none of it is scarier than the feeling of impending doom that the Kings are about to lose a game they very much should win. The Hornets are likely missing both their best point guard (Ball) and their second best point guard (Rozier) who happens to be leading their team in scoring. The Hornets are 3-3, so it’s not like their an automatic win, but they’ve been struggling to start the year. If the Kings want to be a real contender for the play-in or the playoffs, these are the games they need to win.
And I’ve just been a Kings fans long enough for that to be terrifying.
De’Aaron Fox feasts, the refs allow Sabonis to defend someone without immediately blowing the whistle, everyone spends the whole night asking Gordon Hayward if he cut his hair like that for a costume.
Kings 130, Hornets 119
