At 29-45, the Sacramento Kings are 7.5 games behind the Houston Rockets, who are currently the 8th seed in the Western conference. Not an awful team, but not great either. And at this point late in the season, Sacramento’s main goal is to make sure their key players are healthy going into the offseason. Here’s the Sacramento Bee with the latest:
It took some time to get to this point, but Seth Curry is playing more minutes than he ever has in his brief NBA career.
After playing in four games in his first two seasons – one game each with the Memphis Grizzlies and Cleveland Cavaliers and two games with the Phoenix Suns – Curry has played in 36 this season with the Kings and started the past three. He scored a career-high 21 points in Monday’s loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.
As the season winds down, one adjustment the Kings have made is starting Curry at shooting guard. He’s averaging 15.7 points on 50 percent shooting in 27.7 minutes per game as a starter. He was averaging 11.1 minutes off the bench.
