The Sacramento Kings have not been able to shake the Stephon Clark protests. For the second straight home game, their games have been affected.
Protestors migrated from elsewhere to block the entrances of the Golden 1 Center. They affected the game against the Atlanta Hawks several days ago and this time against the Dallas Mavericks.
The protestors blocked the doors, so the people, who paid their own money to attend the game, could not get inside. Like the Hawks game, there were very limited people inside the game when it started, while those, who was late, had to be turned away.
“Tonight’s demonstrations beginning at City Hall migrated to Golden 1 Center preventing ticketed guests from safely entering the arena,” the team said in a statement. “The safety of our guests is our number one priority. Due to law enforcement being unable to allow ticketed fans to safely enter the arena, the doors were closed to maintain guest and public safety.
“We continue to work with law enforcement and City leadership to ensure the safety and security of fans and the public on Thursday and at future events.”
When the protests began on Thursday, March 22nd, the Kings defeated the Hawks, 105-90, before the Kings and ownership gave the protestors an impactful message. Sacramento has lost their last two games, to the Boston Celtics, 104-93, before losing 103-97 to the Mavericks on Tuesday night.
The Kings have two home games remaining this month, before having four straight road games. They will host the Indiana Pacers at 10 pm EST/7 pm PST on Thursday, March 29th, while they close out their season with a home game on Saturday, March 31st, against the Golden State Warriors.
Sacramento then closes out their season on Wednesday, April 11th against the Houston Rockets.
