And here are three storylines to watch.
These aren't the Kings of old
If you've caught any of Sacramento's games this season, you might've noticed that this is a pretty fun team to watch. Offensively, this team can shoot, averaging 113.4 points per game, attempting the second-most shots in the NBA (92.7), and making the third-most field goals (43.3). Their three-point percentage isn't bad either at 38.2 percent.
And a lot of their offense can be attributed to Buddy Hield, who's shooting almost 48 percent from the field right now, and has made the fourth most three-pointers in the NBA this season. His third year in the league, Hield has made 497 shots from three during his NBA career, trailing only Damian Lillard and Klay Thompson with the most threes made through his first three seasons.
Ben Simmons is coming off one of the best games of his career. From the offense to defense to everything in between, Simmons had it going against Golden State. Fresh off an All-Star selection, Simmons said he felt like everything just clicked for him against the Warriors. Can he keep it up?
