Sacramento and Dallas will battle it out in our Sky Sports YouTube offering this weekend – which means another chance to see Luka Doncic in action.
Both teams have identical records coming into this one, sitting at 3-2 with the Kings probably more encouraged by their start than Dallas.
They’ve won all of their road games so far and boast a rookie who is causing quite a stir. Davion Mitchell is the Sacramento guard nicknamed ‘Off Night’ – such is the effect of his defense on opposing players.
Five talking points from Week 1 of the NBA season:

– Davion Mitchell’s defense living up to the hype 🔒
– James Harden’s conditioning, struggles with foul calls 👀
– Ja Morant’s leadership 👏
