Portland, Oregon. De’Aaron Fox added 18 points as the Sacramento Kings made their first playoff appearance since 2006 with a 120-80 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night.

Kevin Huerter scored 17 points and the Kings also grabbed home-court advantage to open the postseason. The 16-year playoff drought was the longest in NBA history and longest among teams in the NBA, NFL, hockey and Major League Baseball.

“We want to achieve more but 16 years is a long time so we’re very pleased to put it behind us,” Fox said.

A crowd of purple-clad fans cheered the team on and chanted before the final whistle.

Kings rookie Keegan Murray made 188 three-pointers this season with 6:44 left in the third quarter, setting an NBA record. He surpassed the mark of 187 set by Donovan Mitchell in 2017-18.

Murray, who smiled after the goal, finished with 13 points.

The Kings are in third place in the Western Conference. The top-seeded Denver Nuggets and the three-game trailing Memphis Grizzlies have already secured playoff berths.

Sacramento could have leveled the standings just hours before, but the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Memphis Grizzlies 141-132.

“We had an opportunity to achieve something special, so we have to keep playing like this. You just have to get better,” Harrison Barnes said.

Rookie Shaydon Sharp had 30 points for the Blazers, who have lost four straight and 10 of their last 11. The loss eliminated Portland from the playoffs.
