The Sacramento Kings will stay at home for another game and welcome the New Orleans Pelicans at 10:00 p.m. ET on December 4th at Golden 1 Center. The Kings will be strutting in after a victory while the Pelicans will be stumbling in from a loss.

Winning is just a little bit easier when you nail ten more threes than your opponent, a fact the Kings proved on Saturday. They secured a 123-117 W over Denver.

The Kings can attribute much of their success to Malik Monk, who scored 26 points, and De'Aaron Fox, who dropped a double-double on 26 points and 16 assists.

Meanwhile, the point spread may have favored the Pelicans last Saturday, but the final result did not. They fell to Chicago 124-118.

The loss doesn't tell the whole story though, as several players had good games. One of the most active was Brandon Ingram, who scored 23 points along with 6 assists and 6 rebounds.
