I wonder if some NBA teams are wishing they played more preseason games.

The Kings appear to have landed a draft steal with Tyrese Haliburton with the 12th pick. He doesn’t play like a rookie.

The @SacramentoKings 455 points through four games are their most since the franchise relocated to Sacramento and their second most in franchise history (486 Pts in 1960-61 in Oscar Robertson's rookie season). @ESPNStatsInfo 

Warriors fans will be watching this game 25 years from now and it will have to be explained to the youngsters why no one was in the stands to see @StephenCurry30  score a career-high 62 points. Most points by a Warriors player since Rick Barry in 1974 (64). Wilt scored a lot, too
