Fourth time's the charm?
No, that's not the saying, but the Kings hope it works for them Thursday against the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Kings badly need a win over one of the most exciting teams in the NBA. Sacramento has dropped its first three games of the restarted season and now will take on Zion Williamson and the Pelicans.
Williamson, the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, has been on a minutes restriction thus far in Orlando and has averaged 14.3 points over 18.2 minutes per game. Still, he can score in bunches.
Kings point guard De'Aaron Fox has been great through three games. He has averaged 26.7 points and 6.0 assists per game so far. If the Kings want any chance of snapping their 13-year playoff drought, though, they will need others to step up.
