Any concerns from Wednesday's stunning 144-119 defeat by the Boston Celtics now are a forgotten memory, as the Kings ran roughshod over the visiting Phoenix Suns in a 120-105 victory on Friday night at Golden 1 Center.
Sacramento's energy and sense of urgency were apparent from the opening tip as the Kings sent a message to the rest of the league, but more importantly to themselves, that Wednesday's embarrassing loss was an exception, not the rule.
Domantas Sabonis led the way for Sacramento with his fourth triple-double of the 2023-24 NBA season, recording 28 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in the dominant win over Phoenix.
Coach Mike Brown highlighted the All-Star center's marquee performance, citing the difficulty for a big man to post the kind of stat line Sabonis recorded against the Suns.
"It's hard. It's almost impossible to be a center and get a triple-double, alright," Brown told reporters after the game. "There's only a couple guys out there, Domas is one of them, [Denver Nuggets center Nikola] Jokic might be the other one. I may be forgetting another guy or two. But it's hard to get a triple-double from the center position, especially as much as he gets them."
De'Aaron Fox made history in the third quarter after passing Mike Bibby as the Kings' all-time leader in assists with the 2,581st dime of his NBA career. The All-NBA point guard finished the evening with 21 points, seven assists, six rebounds and three steals in 32 minutes of action.
The Kings spent the majority of the second half holding a comfortable lead that swelled as high as 29 points, with Phoenix never truly threatening over the final 20-plus minutes of the game after Sacramento raced out to a 14-2 run to begin the third quarter.
Following the game, Keegan Murray revealed that the Kings' fueled their third-quarter barrage with a cohesive effort to stay aggressive and not let up after taking a double-digit lead into the half.
"We just stayed aggressive," Murray told reporters after Friday's win. "We were up by what, 11 at half? We just wanted to keep our foot on the gas in the third quarter and just keep the pace up. I feel like we did a good job of that."
The Kings now are 11-4 at Golden 1 Center this season, tapping into the incredible energy from a raucous home crowd that has created one of the most electric atmospheres in professional sports.
Good teams get humbled in the NBA. Great teams have a short memory and find a way to rebound from those stunning defeats.
That's precisely what the Kings did on Friday night, eroding any doubts about their status as a contender and cementing their place as a team that should be feared by the rest of the league moving forward.

A seasonal flight to Phoenix is returning to attract winter-weary Midwesterners.
United Airlines will reintroduce seasonal nonstop flights between Cleveland and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in March 2024.
The route will bring United's Cleveland flights back to Sky Harbor for the first time since 2022. An expansion of its service at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport in 2021 briefly brought back the route for once-daily flights.
United hasn't flown nonstop Phoenix-Cleveland flights full-time since the Chicago-based carrier dropped Cleveland as one of its hubs in 2014. The decision cut several of its routes, including Phoenix.
Sky Harbor Airport parking:Complete guide to terminal, economy and off-site lots
When will United Airlines' new Phoenix-Cleveland flights begin?
United Airlines will begin flying nonstop between Phoenix and Cleveland on March 7, 2024. The route will be available through May 20, 2024.
The flights will fly five times a week aboard Boeing 737-800 planes, capable of seating 154 passengers.
What is Phoenix to Cleveland airfare?
Nonstop routes will be expensive, reaching more than $600 round trip on most itineraries.
The lowest fares were found for mid-April flights; an April 10 flight had one-way fares of $230 for basic economy and $275 for economy.
What airlines fly Phoenix-Cleveland nonstop flights?
Two other airlines fly nonstop between both cities.
Southwest Airlines offers once-daily nonstop Cleveland-to-Phoenix service, while Phoenix-to-Cleveland flights operate daily in the warm weather months and only on weekends in the winter.
Frontier Airlines flies nonstop year-round between Phoenix and Cleveland.
Why visit Cleveland?
Cleveland is perhaps best known for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Cleveland hosts the museum because of the city's place in the development of rock 'n' roll, including the Cleveland DJ Alan Freed originating the term and the city hosting the first rock 'n' roll concert in 1952.
Fans of "A Christmas Story" flock to Cleveland to tour the two-story Victorian house where the Parker family lived in the classic holiday movie. People can see the Christmas tree, leg lamp, Red Ryder BB gun and behind-the-scenes photos from the film including Ralphie in his bunny suit. Guests can stay at the house, but it's pricey: bookings start at $545 per night.
The city also draws sports fans because of its pro football (Browns), baseball (Guardians), basketball (Cavaliers) and hockey (Monsters) teams. Cuyahoga Valley National Park is a 20-mile drive south; the Cedar Point theme park is a 60-mile drive west.

Salad & Go founders are opening a new restaurant with steakhouse burgers at fast food prices
The creators of Salad & Go, Angie's Lobster and Angie's Prime Grill recently announced their fourth fast-casual restaurant concept: Angie's Burger....
The Angie's brand began with Angie's Lobster in 2021, which opened shortly after owners Tony and Roushan Christofellis sold Salad & Go. The brand expanded earlier this year with Angie's Prime Grill. Both concepts are built around the idea that everyone should be able to afford great food, including lobster and steak.
The idea to open a burger restaurant is not new, Tony told The Republic. He said that before starting Salad & Go, they were talking about an alternate option that would have been called Burger & Go. But in the end, he and Roushan decided to focus on their salad concept.
Now that the couple has opened Angie's Prime Grill, Tony said adding burgers to their lineup just made sense.
Why are the founders of Salad & Go slinging burgers?
"To achieve the mission of making luxury foods affordable to everyone, we have to be really efficient and really creative in the supply chain," Tony said.
Meals at Angie's Lobster are under $10 and at Angie's Prime Grill a meal of USDA prime steak, organic chicken or Maine lobster is available for $10.99 or less. He said this is possible thanks to a business model built around limited, simple menus at each Angie's brand restaurant, which allows the company to save money on both food and labor costs, enabling them to keep the prices low.
Tony said he's found that it's cheaper to buy whole primal cuts of beef than it is to buy only premium cuts, so serving steakhouse burgers will allow them to make use of the offcuts of beef purchased for Angie's Prime Grill. As far as toppings, they're already stocking things like heirloom tomatoes for Angie's Prime Grill bowls, burritos and salads.
What's on the menu at Angie's Burger?
The new concept will offer a steakhouse burger, fries and a drink for $9.99.
The burgers will be 8-ounce steak burgers, which Tony said will be more reminiscent of hamburgers served at sit-down restaurants than of typical fast food burgers.
"I mean, the burger space is incredibly competitive, but everyone's doing the same thing," Tony said. "And really, most Americans have not had access to this type of level of food that we're giving now through Angie's."
How to try Angie's Burger
The first location will be launched out of Angie's test kitchen and distribution center at 880 E. Lone Cactus Drive. The building is currently also home to the debut location of Angie's Prime Grill, which opened in October and is now expanding with more locations around metro Phoenix.
Angie's Burger is expected to open in January.
