The Sacramento Kings are with their starting lineup.
According to Shams Charania of 『The Athletic』, Sacramento’s ‘The General’ De’Aaron Fox (guard, 191cm, 84kg) will start Game 5 of the first round of the playoffs.
Sacramento will face the Golden State Warriors in the home on the 27th (Korean time). They are balanced with 2 wins and 2 losses in this series. The direction of the game on this day is expected to have a significant impact on advancing to the second round of the playoffs.
Pax injured his left index finger in the 4th round of the 1st round on the 24th. Not avoiding a serious injury that fractured his finger. He made contact with an opposing player while attempting an attack with 6:32 left in the fourth quarter. Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole tried to block his breakout, and Pax himself explained that he was injured when he did. ㅋㅋㅋ벳
This injury is pretty devastating for Pax as well as Sacramento. he is left handed As the main guard and the main gun, breakthrough takes up a significant portion when attacking. Since he tried to shoot with his left hand, the injury put a red light on the team’s ability to maintain power. Initially, the upcoming 5th game could be unclear, but as expected, he decided to play without an injury.
He is more active than anyone else in this series. In four games in the first round, he played 38.5 minutes per game, recording 31.5 points (.447 .342 .700), 6 rebounds, 7 assists and 2.5 steals. He is by far the most run average in this series. Even though he is in the playoffs for the first time since advancing to the NBA, he is not intimidated at all and rather dominates the court.
In the last game 1 and game 4, he vomited a whopping 38 points each. Even though he scored the most points in the 4th game, the light faded as the team lost. Not only that, but Sacramento suffered significant internal injuries when Pax, no one else, injured his hand. His injury, who is in charge of the team’s offense, is painful in many ways. He will play in the upcoming 5th game, but it is important how well he can maintain his performance.
