The Kings are looking to get their first win of the season Friday night when they face the Mavericks in Dallas.
Sacramento currently sits at 0-1 on the season after a tough 105-100 loss against the Rockets. While the end result was disappointing and the questionable call left many fans frustrated, there’s no denying that the team had some great moments in the season opener.
The Mavericks shouldn’t be nearly as tough as the Rockets. Much like the Kings, Dallas is currently in a rebuilding phase and so the Kings should have a better shot tonight.
With that said, playing on the road in Dallas will be a much different challenge than playing at home in the Golden 1 Center. The Mavericks may not have a ton of talent, but the team still has plenty of experience.
Sacramento should have a good opportunity to pick up their first win of the season.
