Casual fans do not define a rivalry, but rather, the character and quality of a franchise.

Will this series be the beginning of an I80 rivalry? The Sacramento Kings have earned the respect of Warrior fans, coaches, and players. Mike Brown is molding the team from Sac town into a contender. Using the success and culture of the team, he won three championships over his six year tenure in the bay. Now the 2023 Coach of the Year has put the Sacramento Kings on a path for a Larry O'Brien Trophy.

The chess match between two of the best minds in basketball has been pure enjoyment to watch for a fan of the game . A developing future rivalry, only time will tell if Brown can find the missing pieces to deliver the team from the state's capital their first championship.

After seventeen years of a franchise that resembled a rudderless ship, the Kings secured the third seat in the Western Division, and are playing an entertaining brand of basketball that few teams ever accomplish.

With the series knotted at two-two, the team from the bay will venture into Golden 1 Arena Wednesday evening for game 5 after completing a two-game sweep of the Kings with a 125-126 thriller Sunday afternoon at Chase Center.

De’Aaron Fox’s injury update is a deflating development in what’s been a thrilling Golden State Warriors-Sacramento Kings series thus far.

Earlier on Monday it was revealed Kings star point-guard De’Aaron Fox had suffered a fracture at the top of his left index finger. According to The Athletics Shams Charania, Fox “sustained the injury midway through the fourth quarter of Sunday’s Game 3 and played through it.”

The 25-year-old would show no ill-effects as he masterfully made his way to 38 points, nine rebounds and five assists, though the Warriors overcame Fox’s brilliance to tie the series with a 126-125 victory.
