You'd think the Jazz would have been able to beat the Lakers when Shaq was tossed, but no. i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif
It seemed to have fueled the Lakers instead and went on an impressive run.
Kings won as well.

The Kings are unconscious...

Going from memory, they haven't had any real competition as of late, except for Minnesota, I guess.
The Lakers are the last tough team I can recall and they lost that one.
They did have that impressive road trip going 6-0, but that was only a matter of time before they clicked on the road and they did it just in time.

You know, as good as they have been, it wouldn't surprise me to see them take an early exit in the playoffs. Kind of like the Mariners last year in baseball.

Since the loss to the Lakers and have gone on their current streak, they've played two Western playoff teams (Utah and Minnesota) and only Utah was on the road. They also played the Clippers in their own house. Their road streak does include the win at Utah and a win at Detroit. The only other playoff team in there was Charlotte, but then Charlotte is the only team in the league with a homecourt disadvantage.

Thanks for the info Hoopmeister.
Those are teams you'd expect the Kings to beat anyway, though.

Definitely. My point was that Sacramento really hasn't beaten anyone during their streak. It certainly doesn't make them any scarier to me. I think the Mavs take them 3-1 or 4-2 in a series.

hence my previous comment...they could easily make an early exit.
