The Sacramento Kings begin a season-long six-game road trip Thursday night at the Charlotte Hornets, who know a thing or two about long road trips themselves.
The Hornets are back home in Spectrum Center after their own six-game trip that ended on Monday and culminated with a 2-4 record. But coach James Borrego says records can be deceiving.
Charlotte (20-23) won at Western Conference cellar-dweller Phoenix and finished the trip with a win at San Antonio. The only lopsided loss on the trip was in Portland, 127-96.
