Sacramento Kings’ Domantas Sabonis has humorously requested that the NBA media refrain from discussing his 10-0 career record when facing Los Angeles Lakers’ Anthony Davis.

Sabonis guided the Kings to a 120-107 victory over the Lakers on Wednesday night, recording 17 points, 19 rebounds, and 10 assists against Davis.

“I don’t pay attention to that. The more you guys bring attention to that, it makes my life harder. If anything, it will light a fire under him, so stop mentioning anything, please,” Sabonis joked.

Davis expressed a team-first mentality before the latest matchup against Sabonis, downplaying individual matchups. “It doesn’t matter to me. I’m all about the team,” Davis said.

This team-centric approach by both NBA stars underscores the significant playoff implications of the Kings’ 4-0 season record against the Lakers.

In his career, Sabonis has averaged 13.3 points, 10.6 rebounds, and 4.5 assists against Davis. Meanwhile, Davis has averaged 23.1 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 2.3 assists when facing Sabonis.

Sacramento holds a three-game lead over Los Angeles for the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference, positioning them outside the play-in tournament seeding.
