Let's light the beam! Game 1 is set for Saturday, April 15 at 5:30 p.m.
and to hype it up, the Kings will be opening up the Kings Playoffs Playground on Friday at Ali Youssefi Square near K and 7th streets.
Kings fans can get into the zone for free.
This fan zone will provide guests the opportunity to test their basketball skills, create a one-of-a-kind commemorative action figure of themselves in Kings gear, take a photo with the famed 6th Man Statue (formerly located at ARCO Arena), capture a video of themselves lighting the beam and make a custom cheer card. Select Playoffs merchandise will also be available for purchase.
Kings will also be holding a free watch party at the Golden 1 Center for fans. While the watch party is free, fans will need to get a ticket to get into the area. Details on those tickets will be released soon.
The rest of Sacramento is being urged to light up their homes and businesses in purple.
With the Kings having home court advantage this series, Sacramento will host Games 1 and 2. If necessary, the series will come back to Sacramento for Games 5 and 7.
No other dates and times have been released yet by the NBA for the rest of the series other than Game 1. Courtesy of CBS NEWS
