One of the things that makes fans of the Sacramento Kings so happy right now is that there are plenty of stars on the roster to root for.
From Keegan Murray to Malik Monk, De’Aaron Fox, Harrison Barnes, and others, there is a plethora of great talent on the team.
Two of the team’s biggest stars were very bright on Monday.
Domantas Sabonis was solid with 19 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists.
And Kevin Huerter was incredible with 25 points and 8 assists and went 9-of-16 from the field.

The Kings took down the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday and now have a 38-26 record.
They are just a half-game behind the two-seed Memphis Grizzlies.
Seeing as the Grizzlies are currently in the midst of controversy and injuries, there is a good chance that the Kings could climb to the second seed in the next few days.
The next few games for the Kings are going to be tough ones.
They are facing off against the New York Knicks on Thursday, followed by games against the Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks.
The Kings are currently having their best season in ages and are set to enjoy their first postseason run in nearly two decades.
This is happening because of the addition of new head coach Mike Brown but also the incredible work of the players listed above.
The entire team has come together with youthful enthusiasm and drive.
They don’t care about the team’s troubled history, they were all looking to prove themselves in 2022-23.
They have definitely done that.NEXT: Former NBA Player Says 1 Coach Should Earn Award
