Welcome to the Sactown Royalty 2020 Playoff Tracker! Inspired by a similar effort at this site last season, this tracker will help Kings fans keep up to date on the team’s playoff positioning and how the opposition is doing. Check back daily for regular updates on standings, tiebreakers, remaining schedules, and games to watch that night.

As a reminder, in the event Sacramento doesn’t earn the eighth seed outright, the Kings have to finish ninth and within four games of whichever team is in eighth to trigger a play-in round. They would have to win two consecutive games against the no. 8 seed in the play-in to advance to the playoffs.
