How to Watch Grizzlies-Kings Game On Thursday

The Memphis Grizzlies (3-1) and Sacramento Kings (0-3) will play each other on Thursday night in Sacramento. You can watch the game in full, including TV information, lineups and bios.

The Memphis Grizzlies, led by All-Star guard Ja Morant, have begun the 2022-23 season hot with a 3-1 record, but they will put their hot start on the line Thursday night against De’Aaron Fox and the Sacramento Kings, who are still searching for their first win of the new season. While they have been the laughing stock for a while, Sacramento made some great moves this offseason and set themselves up for success. They brought in sharpshooters such as Kevin Huerter, Malik Monk, and drafted Keegan Murray, a multi-talented forward. Mike Brown, a former assistant coach to the Golden State Warriors was also hired to be their head coach.

Brown, a coach who is known for getting the most out of his team, has already positively changed the culture and atmosphere surrounding his team, which is why the Kings are a sneaky competitive team in the Western Conference right now despite not having one win.

De’Aaron Fox has continued to work on his craft and is looking like an All-Star-level player early on this season, which is why Memphis will have to bring their best on Thursday if they are to come out of Sacramento with a victory.

Coming off of a career night in which he scored a career-high 38 points against the Brooklyn Nets, Desmond Bane will have to continue being one of the better No. The Grizzlies need to have two scoring options to be successful in this league. The Grizzlies are a top-tier Western Conference team and the Kings want to prove they can compete at the highest level. Thursday’s matchup should be a must-see.

The 2022-23 NBA season has begun and here is how to watch Thursday’s game with gametimes and TV, lineups, bios and other must-know details.
