An undermanned LA Clippers have fallen to the Sacramento Kings at home 123-96 on Sunday morning (all times AEDT) to now be at risk of dropping out of the West’s top eight seeds.
Domantas Sabonis led the way for Sacramento, who improved to 12-9 to climb into the West’s fifth seed after a 0-4 start to the season, with 24 points on 10-of-11 shooting, five rebounds, six assists and two blocks and Keegan Murray added 23 points, seven rebounds and two steals.
The Kings came out firing at Crypto.com Arena, winning the first quarter 38-24 as the Clippers, who were again without Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, lacked intensity.
