Sacramento Kings head coach Mike Brown thought the group could have potentially made some postseason noise if they had gotten past the New Orleans Pelicans during the play-in tournament (lost 105-98 at Smoothie King Center).

(via Sacramento Kings):

“Obviously your last loss is always your toughest loss, in my opinion. To lose to New Orleans, especially when I felt we had pretty good mojo going, we had a pretty good opportunity, and I felt we improved in a lot of areas throughout the course of the year. That makes it tough to not have a chance to play in a seven-game series. That makes it tough because when you look at the West and when you look at how we competed against the West, anything could have happened, the sky was the limit. I think that’s how close these teams were this year when it came to on the court play.”
