The Kings are one of 22 teams invited to Orlando for the resumption of the 2019-20 NBA season. Each team is set to play eight seeding games at the Walt Disney World Resort to determine final win-loss records and whether there will be a play-in scenario. If the team with the ninth-best record in either conference is within three and a half games of eighth place, there will be a play-in tournament between the No. 8 and 9 seeds. That tournament will be double elimination for the No. 8 seed and single elimination for the No. 9 seed. Currently, the Kings are 3.5 games out of the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference, in a virtual tie with the Portland Trail Blazers and New Orleans Pelicans.

 

Prior to the game, fans can catch the latest team developments, interviews and an in-depth game preview on Kings Pregame Live. Immediately following the game, Kings Postgame Live will give viewers a complete game breakdown with stats and highlights, interviews, and a preview of the next game. The shows are anchored by Jim Kozimor with expert analysis from Kayte Hunter. Additional analysis will be provided by Kings Insider James Ham, Gary Gerould and Doug Christie.
