The Sacramento Kings aren’t the only team in a current crisis.
Tonight, they will welcome in the Phoenix Suns, who recently replaced Alvin Gentry with Lindsey Hunter and have won only two games this month.
Hunter will be coaching in his first NBA game, at the helm of a team that has won three road games all season.
Meanwhile, the Kings are more than flirting with Seattle, and if sources are right, the NBA Board of Governors are reviewing the Kings’ sale to a Seattle-based investment group as we speak.
So, it looks as if this matchup will be more focused on the turmoil of the two teams, rather than the game itself.
But just for keeps, here are the starting lineups.
