De'Aaron Fox and the young Kings had their eyes on the playoffs.
But with each loss, those dreams are fading, and they know it. As you might imagine, Fox and Co. aren't thrilled about this development.
After the Kings' 126-120 loss to the Celtics on Thursday in Boston, a reporter tried to ask the Kings point guard about how he approaches these games.
It didn't go well for the reporter.
Reporter: "At this point, obviously, every game matters to make the playoffs and it gets harder and harder, so, is it somewhat deflating know each of these games are must-win games at this point or do you take a different approach?"
Fox: "What other approach would you take? You want to win all the games that you can. Dumba** question."
With the loss, the Kings fell back under the .500 mark, sitting at 33-34. Sacramento is now five games behind the Clippers for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with 15 games remaining in the season.
