The Sacramento Kings had one of their worst performances of the season in Monday’s 125-119 loss to the Charlotte Hornets. The team’s star players Domantas Sabonis and De’Aaron Fox played well, but no one else on Sacramento’s roster really showed up in any real way.
Here are five takeaways from Sacramento’s disappointing loss.
The Kings are still a bad defensive team
The Hornets are more talented than their 8-23 record, but still, there is a reason they have only reached this point total a handful of times. The Kings, despite showing some signs they might be alright on that end, still need to be a better defensive team.
