SAN ANTONIO - Season Results
 Team StatsOpp Stats
8/9/2020*NEW ORLEANS              
SACRAMENTO: LAST SEASON: 39-43, finished ninth in Western Conference.
COACH: Luke Walton (first season with Kings, fourth season overall, 98-148).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G De'Aaron Fox (17.3 ppg), G Buddy Hield (20.7), F Harrison Barnes (14.3), F Marvin Bagley III (14.9), C Dewayne Dedmon (10.8).
KEY LOSSES: C Willie Cauley-Stein, F Corey Brewer.
KEY ADDITIONS: Dedmon, F Trevor Ariza, G Cory Joseph, F Richaun Holmes.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The Kings are building around emerging stars Fox and Bagley. Fox took a major step in his second season to become one of the most complete point guards in the NBA. His speed fuels Sacramento's up-tempo attack and Walton hopes to get improved defense and 3-point shooting this season out of Fox to make him a more complete player. Bagley started only a handful of games as a rookie but took big strides in the second half when he showed the ability to be a top scorer. He increased his scoring average more than five points per game after the All-Star break to 18.5 and the Kings hope be builds on that this season.
OUTLOOK: The Kings extended the longest active playoff drought in the NBA last season when they missed the postseason for the 13th straight season. But they won their most games of any season during that stretch and finished ninth in the conference. The players view getting into the playoffs as a benchmark for a successful season but that will be hard in a deep Western Conference that only got stronger with moves this offseason.
SAN ANTONIO: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost 4-3 to Denver in Western Conference first round.
COACH: Gregg Popovich (24th season, 1245-575).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Dejounte Murray (missed last season with knee injury), G Bryn Forbes (11.8 ppg), G DeMar DeRozan (21.2), F LaMarcus Aldridge (21.3), C Jakob Poeltl (5.5).
KEY ADDITIONS: F DeMarre Carroll, F Trey Lyles, G/F Keldon Johnson, F Luka Samanic
PLAYERS TO WATCH: DeRozan spent most of last season processing a trade that unexpectedly sent him to the Spurs and away from the Toronto Raptors, the franchise he pledged his devotion to ' then watched them win a title. Murray's injury also forced DeRozan to become the team's main distributor for the first time in his career. DeRozan set a career high with 6.2 assists per game but also had his second-lowest scoring average in six seasons. Murray is back and spent the offseason sending video of specific plays to show the 30-year-old guard how he could help him score more easily.
OUTLOOK: The Spurs continue to get younger and faster while trying to maintain their veteran presence and corporate knowledge. The latter received a huge boost with the addition of Hall of Famer Tim Duncan as an assistant coach. Duncan's knowledge of the Spurs' system, work ethic and camaraderie should help the team's development as it attempts to an establish an identity separate from but similar to the Big Three era spearheaded by Duncan that led to five NBA championships. Murray's return along with the return of White, expected emergence of Lonnie Walker IV and addition of Carroll should make the Spurs among the best wing defenses in the league.
Spurs, Kings begin seeding games with clear goal

The Sacramento Kings and San Antonio Spurs reboot their final run toward the NBA playoffs when they square off Friday at the Visa Athletic Center near Orlando, Fla., in the two teams' first official game since the stoppage for COVID-19 on March 11.

Twenty-two teams (13 of them in the Western Conference) will return to play during the 2019-20 season restart. The teams consist of the 16 (eight per conference) already in playoff position and the six teams, five of them from the West, that are within six games of the eighth seed in their respective conferences.

The teams will play an eight-game schedule at the NBA "bubble" in the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex at Walt Disney World.

From these, the top seven teams in each conference will advance, with the final eighth seed in each conference being determined by a potential play-in tournament before the traditional 16-team playoffs.

The Spurs hit the reboot with a record of 27-36, the second-worst record of the Western Conference teams here. San Antonio's initial goal is to win games and climb over Portland, New Orleans and Sacramento into ninth place and to within four games of Memphis to force a play-in for the eighth, and final, playoff spot.

The Spurs will have a pretty good idea right away of their chances, with the first two "seeding" games against Sacramento, which is a half-game ahead of San Antonio, and Memphis.

"We are not here for no reason," Spurs' leading scorer DeMar DeRozan told the San Antonio Express-News. "Despite whatever the odds, whatever the percentages may be, we can't feed into that. We just have to go out there and compete.

"For us, it's exciting to be in this position to go out there and compete and give ourselves a second chance throughout this chaos that's been going on and see what we can do," DeRozan said.

The Spurs are shorthanded in their attempt to secure a 23rd straight playoff spot. Center LaMarcus Aldridge, a seven-time All-Star, is not with the team after having shoulder surgery in April, and center Trey Lyles had an appendectomy two weeks ago and was sent home.

Sacramento's goals are similar to the Spurs' - win and climb high enough in the standings to get into a play-in with the Grizzlies. The Kings begin play Friday at 28-36, and seek their first trip to the postseason in 14 seasons.

The Kings are one of the deepest and most versatile teams in the bubble. With conditioning a league-wide issue heading into this unique stretch, Sacramento could have an advantage, especially if it can get off to a quick start.

"It's a new season in the sense that we have eight games to try and get ourselves into that playoff spot," Kings coach Luke Walton said. "We're going to go (with) whoever is playing at the highest level."

Sacramento will be without power forward Marvin Bagley III for the rest of the season after he sprained his right foot in practice on July 20.

"We're getting right at the right time," Kings point guard De'Aaron Fox said. "This is probably the most guys we've had ready for a long time. We're confident and we're ready to go."

The two teams have split the season series so far, but Sacramento is 4-1 against San Antonio over the last two seasons.
