Kings rout Trail Blazers, secure higher seed in play-in

The Sacramento Kings (46-36) secured a vital victory over the Portland Trail Blazers (21-61) with a resounding 121-82 win in their regular-season finale.

De’Aaron Fox led the charge with 24 points, ensuring the Kings avoid the 10th spot in the Western Conference standings and earn at least one more home game.

The Kings’ upcoming play-in game against the Golden State Warriors presents an opportunity for redemption after last year’s playoff loss, with Sacramento seeking a return to postseason action.

Despite facing challenges with key injuries to Malik Monk and Kevin Huerter, the Kings displayed resilience, led by Domantas Sabonis’ dominant performance with 18 points and 11 rebounds.

Portland, plagued by injuries, struggled to mount any significant threat, missing 21 of their first 22 attempts from beyond the arc.

Dalano Banton, who led the Trail Blazers in scoring with 17 points, was ejected in the fourth quarter.
