The Sacramento Kings have low hopes of making it to the playoffs and their struggles are unlikely to make it better. Though they won over the Grizzlies last time out, they have their work cut out for them against the Clips. Buddy Hield will be the man to watch, same with Harrison Barnes. Head coach Luke Walton hopes both can lead the three-point parade for offense. Defensively, Sacramento needs to keep its eyes on Kawhi Leonard. They also need to be ready for Marcus Morris, someone expected to bully his way inside the paint.
