GoodGameBro writes, "One of the great early stories of this young NBA season is the Sacramento Kings, who stand at 5-1 as of this writing, with a game against the depleted Oklahoma City Thunder coming tonight.
Looking over the teams’ stats this year, they don’t have the profile of an elite team. Their point differential is 9th in the league, and they have an offense that ranks 12th in efficiency and a defense that ranks 9th. They don’t shoot a ton of 3s (29th in the league in attempts) and they give up the second most attempts from deep in the league. Generally, these aren’t the types of stats that you’d like to see from an elite team."
