For the Kings, the important thing is to be consistent on the way, despite random results.

“I think with us, the trick is to really focus on the process and put the result aside a bit,” confirmed Harrison Barnesperfect lieutenant of Domantas Sabonis with his 20 points this night. “We put in place good things in the previous matches, and even though we didn’t win, it wasn’t like we were abandoning this process to go in another direction.
