Kings eliminate Warriors from Play-In Tournament with 118-94 win

In a thrilling showdown, Keegan Murray led the Sacramento Kings to a 118-94 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night, scoring 32 points. De’Aaron Fox added 24 points as the Kings advanced in the play-in tournament, eliminating the Warriors and securing a chance to return to the playoffs as the eighth seed in the Western Conference.

The Kings sought redemption for last year’s Game 7 loss to the Warriors by showcasing cleaner play and quickness on loose balls. The victory marked a significant milestone for Sacramento, with one of the most pivotal wins for the franchise in two decades.

Despite a valiant effort, the Warriors fell short and missed out on the playoffs for the third time in the last five seasons. Klay Thompson struggled, missing all 10 shots, and Stephen Curry faced tough defense from Keon Ellis. Ellis, an undrafted player who was on a two-way contract until February, contributed 15 points and showcased strong defense.

Looking ahead, Sacramento will face New Orleans on Friday, with hopes of breaking their losing streak against the Pelicans in the regular season. The Kings have not gone winless in six or more games against the same opponent since the 1983-84 season against the Los Angeles Lakers.

In a fiercely competitive game between Northern California rivals, the Kings dominated throughout, securing their lead and ultimately sealing the win. The energy in the arena was electric, with fans cheering on their team to “Light the beam!” in the final minutes of the game.
