De’Aaron Fox says Sacramento going into every game confident in getting a win
Prior to the start of this season, most experts and analysts were writing the Kings off as a team with little to no chance of making the playoffs. However, Sacramento has played their way to an 8-6 record through the early stages of this campaign, raising a few eyebrows around the league. People are starting to take notice, as Fox says.
“We’re going into every game this year feeling like we can win,” Fox tells NBC Sports. “And when you go into games with that confidence, you start seeing shots go in, energy picks up, and you have a ball game.
“People are starting to take notice,” Fox added. “They’re saying (Sacramento) is not an easy win if we play you at home or on the road. We just come out and play our game. We feel like if we can play fast, then it definitely gives us a chance to win.”

Fox, now 20 years of age, is becoming an increasingly important piece of Sacramento’s rotation. In fact, he’s currently the Kings’ leading assist man. Furthermore, he’s tied with Buddy Hield as the team’s leading scorers.
In his 14 appearances with the Kings this season, Fox has racked up averages of 18.7 points on 50.8 percent shooting from the field (44.2 percent from beyond the arc), 7.1 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 32.7 minutes per outing.
Fox and the Kings will be back in action on Friday night, when they’ll travel to Memphis for a match-up against the Grizzlies. Tip-off inside FedExForum is set for 8:00 p.m. EST.
