Sacramento Kings’ Failures Lead To Another Long Offseason

SACRAMENTO (AP) – Even in a year during which the NBA expanded the postseason and added a pair of play-in games, the Sacramento Kings weren’t good enough to get in. The Kings have now failed to make the playoffs for 15 consecutive seasons, tying the league’s mark for futility previously set by the Los Angeles Clippers. Hailed as a hero in Sacramento when he purchased the team in 2013 and saved it from a possible move to Seattle, Kings owner Vivek Ranadive is now once again facing another long of...

Kings Season Ends With 121-89 Loss To Top-Seeded Jazz

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — It’s back to the offseason for the Sacramento Kings. Jordan Clarkson scored 33 points, Rudy Gobert added 13 points and 16 rebounds and the Utah Jazz took the No. 1 spot in the NBA playoffs, beating the Kings 121-99 on Sunday night. Utah (52-20) won its final two to edge Western Conference-rival Phoenix for the top spot. It’s the first time in franchise history that the Jazz have finished with sole possession of the best record in the NBA. Mike Conley had 11 points...

Kings season in review: Up, downs and cautious optimism

The Kings careened into a rebuild in 2018 and have spent the past three seasons reconstructing an organization that fell into disrepair, right up through Thursday’s conclusion to the 2021 season. “As a team, I think we took steps in the right direction. Obviously there is still work left to be done,” team captain Anze Kopitar said. On the surface, there may not be much to point to in terms of progress. The Kings posted a .438 points percentage, down a bit from last year’s .457 and only marginall...

Lakers hold their breath for healthy roster in Indiana

There’s a chance – perhaps a small one – that the Lakers (40-30) will look healthier than they’ve been in weeks when they line up for an unusual Saturday morning tip in Indianapolis. All-Star LeBron James is questionable, All-Star big man Anthony Davis is probable, and point guard Dennis Schröder’s status is to be determined for the penultimate game of the regular season against the Indiana Pacers at 10 a.m. PDT. The last time all three played together was April 30, in an ill-fated loss to the S...

Sacramento Kings Clinch Record-Tying 15th Straight Season Without Playoffs

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP/CBS13) — The Sacramento Kings are officially eliminated from playoff contention for a record-tying 15th straight season. Dillon Brooks scored 30 points and the Memphis Grizzlies used a late rally to defeat the Kings 116-110 on Thursday night in the first of a back-to-back between the teams. Jonas Valanciunas had 24 points and 13 rebounds for Memphis, Kyle Anderson added 14 points, and Ja Morant had 12 points, seven rebounds and eight assists. Justin James scored a career-high ...

Kings ready to wrap up season in Colorado, look forward to breakthroughs

And then there were two. Only a pair of games remain in the Kings’ season, both against the Colorado Avalanche in once-again-snowy Denver this Wednesday and Thursday. Earlier this season, the Kings were snowed in after a visit to Colorado and had to have a home game against St. Louis rescheduled for Monday, when they lost 2-1 in overtime. Since a stretch that saw them drop four out of five games and eight out of 11 overall, the Kings have played .500 hockey with a 4-4-1 record in their last nine...

Kings prepare for St. Louis Blues in final home game

With three games remaining and the only suspense being what their lottery odds will be for a third straight year, the Kings are looking toward next season as they prepare for their final home game of their campaign. They’ll face the St. Louis Blues, who qualified for the playoffs for the ninth time in the past decade, but with an eye toward individual development and character makeup as much as a win or a loss. Coach Todd McLellan said that his staff was identifying emphases from night to night,...

Kings fall to Devon Toews, Avalanche

Though the Kings played a superior game to their effort Friday, they lost by an identical 3-2 score to the same opponent, the Colorado Avalanche, at Staples Center Saturday. Defenseman Sean Walker and rookie center Rasmus Kupari lit the lamp for the Kings. Cal Petersen negated 27 of 30 shots. Defenseman Devon Toews scored twice for the Avalanche while defenseman Cale Makar produced a goal and an assist. Winger Andre Burakovsky had two assists for the second straight night, stretching his point s...

Kings’ Anze Kopitar helps Quinton Byfield bridge their 999-point gap

One point and 1,000 points may seem like a wide gap to bridge, but Kings centers Anze Kopitar and Quinton Byfield have attempted to do exactly that as the 15-year veteran and rookie have been sharing the ice recently. Kopitar notched his 1,000th point Wednesday, about two hours after Byfield recorded his first. “Different moments for each of them, equally exciting, I think,” Kings Coach Todd McLellan said. The two centers have imposing size meshed with considerable skill and soft touch, though t...

Anze Kopitar reaches 1,000 points as Kings beat Coyotes

There was a joyous union of past and future for the Kings on Wednesday night as center Anze Kopitar scored his 1,000th point on the same night that top prospect Quinton Byfield picked up his first as the Kings defeated the Arizona Coyotes, 4-2, at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Ariz. It was a big night down the middle as center Gabe Vilardi scored twice for the Kings and center Jaret Anderson-Dolan also scored. Byfield recorded his first career point with an assist on Vilardi’s first goal. Defens...

Bagley’s Fast Start Helps Kings Race Past Pacers 104-93

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Marvin Bagley III kept Sacramento’s slim playoff hopes alive Wednesday night with a breakthrough performance — scoring a season-high 31 points and grabbing 12 rebounds to lead the Kings past the Indiana Pacers 104-93. It has been a long time coming for the No. 2 overall draft pick in 2018, but Bagley started fast, finished strong and appears to be finding his groove, finally. “This is two of the last three games where he’s put up big-time performances,” coach Luke Walton said...

Hield’s 18 Points, 11 Rebounds Help Kings Top Thunder 103-99

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Buddy Hield had 18 points and 11 rebounds to help the Sacramento Kings beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 103-99 on Tuesday night for their third straight win. It was the seventh double-double of Hield’s five-year career. He made just 5 of 16 shots, but he fell one rebound short of his career-high. Terence Davis scored 18 points and Delon Wright had 13 points, 10 rebounds, and eight assists for the Kings, who have won six of nine and still hope to qualify for the play-in tournam...

Alexander: Will Anze Kopitar’s 1,000th point be a quiet milestone?

Outside of Los Angeles – and maybe in some precincts within SoCal as well – this will likely be a quiet milestone. At some point in the next six games, possibly as early as Wednesday night in Glendale, Ariz., the Kings’ Anze Kopitar will score a goal or register an assist for his 1,000th career point in the NHL. It will be celebrated among those who care about the Kings. Elsewhere in the NHL, odds are that it will be underplayed. That pretty much has been the story of Kopitar’s career, one that ...

Have the Ducks found their top line for the future?

No question, this has been a season of loss for the Ducks, who clinched last place in the West Division with a 3-1 defeat Monday to the St. Louis Blues, but it’s also been a season of discovery for the rebuilding franchise. Some finds have been more significant than others. Sure, teaming left wing Max Comtois with rookie center Trevor Zegras and right wing Troy Terry seems like a no-brainer now, after four productive games together. Coach Dallas Eakins could have gone in another direction, placi...

Lakers rule out LeBron James against Denver; Schröder may miss significant time

After quick two-night revue without good results, LeBron James’ comeback has hit a setback. And Dennis Schröder will miss his second straight game — and maybe a lot more. The Lakers officially ruled out both James and Schröder for Monday’s game against the Denver Nuggets, a tough playoff-caliber opponent who will stand in the way of the team ending its recent slide of six losses in its last seven games. James complained of pain and tightness in his right ankle, which he had rehabbed since March ...

Kings Beat Contending Mavs 111-99 To Finish Sweep; Haliburton Injured

DALLAS (AP) — Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks simply couldn’t figure out the Sacramento Kings this season. It remains to be seen how that will affect the playoff positioning for the Mavericks, who now have to worry about their superstar being one technical foul from a one-game suspension after his 15th of the season. Buddy Hield scored 27 points, Marvin Bagley III had 23 points and nine rebounds and Sacramento beat Dallas 111-99 on Sunday night, giving the Kings a season sweep of the Maveri...
