The Kings will open their season on the road against the Portland Blazers on Oct. 20. Sacramento will return to The Golden 1 Center which will hopefully be full of fans on Oct. 22. as they host the Utah Jazz.
Sacramento’s opening week looks to be tough as they will go on to face the Golden State Warriors on Oct. 24 before playing the 2021 Western Conference Champion Phoenix Suns on the road on Oct. 27.
LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook and the newly revamped Los Angeles Lakers will make two Golden 1 Center appearances, first on Nov. 30 and then later again on Jan. 12. Sacramento will travel south to The Staples Center to face the star-studded trio on both Nov. 26 and Jan. 4.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and the NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks will make their lone Golden 1 Center Appearance on March 16. The Kings will also see the Bucks earlier in the season in Milwaukee on Jan. 22.
Sacramento will close the season on a southwestern back-to-back where they will play the Los Angeles Clippers on April 9th and then close the season out in Phoenix on April 10th.
The Kings have five games on NBATV, but unsurprisingly, they don’t have any games currently scheduled to be nationally televised on ESPN or TNT.
