The Kings have been dealing with issues bigger than basketball locally as the community has rallied outside the Golden 1 Center to protest a recent inexplicable shooting by local police. While the Kings support the protests, they activity outside the arena has kept man fans from entering the arena for the past few home games.
After taking care of the injury-ravaged Warriors on Tuesday, the Pacers face a Kings team committed to a youth movement to close out the season, including three young Kentucky players trying to find their way. De’Aaron Fox has been electric at times despite strugglign to shoot the ball consistently and offers a player with the quicks to keep up with Darren Collison and Victor Oladipo.
The Pacers welcomed Domas Sabonis back for a solid return in Golden State but did lose Trevor Booker (ankle) early in the game. Booker will sit out the game in Sac.
