Each team is set to play eight seeding games at the Walt Disney World Resort to determine final win-loss records and whether there will be a play-in scenario. If the team with the ninth-best record in either conference is within three and a half games of eighth place, there will be a play-in tournament between the No. 8 and 9 seeds. That tournament will be double elimination for the No. 8 seed and single elimination for the No. 9 seed. Currently, the Kings are 3.5 games out of the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference, in a virtual tie with the Portland Trail Blazers and New Orleans Pelicans.

 

Prior to the game, fans can catch the latest team developments, interviews and an in-depth game preview on Kings Pregame Live. Immediately following the game, Kings Postgame Live will give viewers a complete game breakdown with stats and highlights, interviews, and a preview of the next game.
