Kings eager to take next step after ending playoff drought

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Through every playoff triumph and every glaring mistake, Mike Brown stuck by his young Sacramento Kings knowing how much all of these moments will mean for the future.

He instructed rookie Keegan Murray to “let it fly” when his shot wasn't falling. The NBA coach of the year showed the utmost confidence in De'Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis to take whatever shots they liked and not worry about the results as long as they were making smart decisions with the ball.

That's the only way you learn in the big moments, Brown repeated time and again. They were mostly playoff first-timers after all.
