36 points in 29 games...is that good?

New, comment

How many times have the Kings had 36 points or more at the game 29 mark? Three times. 1988-89, they were one point better; 1980-81, they were seven points better; 1974-75, they were the same as this year. And, yes, they made the playoffs each of those years.

In case you're wondering, 1974-75 was the Kings' 105 point season (best ever). Then '90 (102 pts), '80 (99 pts), then three Andy Murray teams -- '01, '99,'00 -- with totals of 95, 94, 92 pts respectively, then the '88 team (91 pts). All of those teams made the playoffs.

The Kings are on pace for 102 points.
