NBA Schedule 2011-12: Sacramento Kings Start And End Season Vs. Los Angeles Lakers

The Sacramento Kings have to be happy with how this season will start and end: Home dates with the Los Angeles Lakers. The Kings will start their season on December 26th and finish it on April 26th, and the purple and gold will be involved in both of these contests, both being played in Sacramento.

Sacramento has only one of those fierce back-to-back-to-backs, on January 3rd-5th when they play Memphis, Denver and Milwaukee. They'll start fairly nice with seven of their first ten games at home, but then have a brutal stretch where they play 23 of their next 31 on the road, with a five, a six, and two three game road trips scattered throughout the schedule. They then do have a nice nine game homestand and play a fairly balanced schedule the rest of the way.

Here is the full schedule for the Kings. All times are Pacific.
