Luke Walton is optimistic the Sacramento Kings still have a chance to advance to the playoffs.

The head coach of the Kings believes the victory over the New Orleans Pelicans will help the team build some momentum ahead of the remaining four games.

Sacramento ended a three-game losing streak (1-3) and is currently two and a half games behind the eighth-seeded Memphis Grizzlies.

“We are still in it. You never know. We’ve got four more games, and there’s a big group of teams right there, so we’re playing to win these (games) and trying to give ourselves the best chance to get into a playoff, and I thought today was a good step forward,” Walton said, per Sports Illustrated.
