Mavericks @ Kings Friday: De’Aaron Fox scores 33

With the loss, the Kings are now 31-24 overall on the season. They remain in first place in the Pacific Division, somewhere they are definitely not used to being at this point in the season. The top scorer in the game was De’Aaron Fox. He had an impressive 33 points in the contest, however, Sacramento’s form has been a little bit off of late. If they don’t start winning on a more consistent basis, one of the powerhouse divisional rivals will be taking over the top spot in the Pacific for sure. They may also be at risk of dropping out of our Top Ten NBA Power Rankings, rankings that we update every Sunday night.
