Few teams need a win as much as the Kings do Tuesday.
Sacramento has dropped each of its first two games in the NBA's Orlando restart, and stand one game behind the San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail Blazers for the No. 9 spot in the Western Conference standings, where they'll need to get to to even have a chance at a postseason berth.
Back-to-back losses to the Spurs and Orlando Magic have put the Kings in a bind, and they'll need to stack up some wins in order to climb back up the standings. The Dallas Mavericks are at No. 7 in the West, also in need of a victory after losses to the Houston Rockets and Phoenix Suns to begin the Orlando restart.
Luke Walton lamented the team's lackluster effort in a blowout loss to the Magic on Sunday, and said he would potentially be making some "changes" to the Kings' lineup.
