Can Sacramento end its losing streak at three?

After starting the season 3-1, the Sacramento Kings have dropped three in a row to fall below the .500 mark. The good news for the Kings is that they have a chance to get back on track when they host the Chicago Bulls.

Sacramento played its worst game of the young season last time out, losing to the Golden State Warriors by 31 points.

It’s been a drama-full week for the Kings, with the fathers of Marvin Bagley III and De’Aaron Fox sharing their thoughts on Twitter. Head coach Luke Walton needs to get the players to focus on turning things around ahead of a tough seven-game stretch after this game.

The good news is that Tyrese Haliburton has been upgraded to questionable for tonight’s matchup, which would be a big boost to Sacramento’s lineup.
