Boasting a top-10 scoring offense while averaging over 114 points per game during the 2018-19 season, Sacramento's high-powered attack saw a renaissance with De'Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Marvin Bagley III leading the way.

As the team tipped-off its preseason campaign in India against the Pacers, the young core looked to maintain that prowess while adding knew wrinkles from the Luke Walton-led schemes.

Sure enough, the offense continued to click as the purple and black dropped 131 points in their first preseason tilt, while catching the eye of former 76ers exec and creator of Cleaning the Glass basketball analytics website Ben Falk.

"Some clever Xs and Os from the Kings in their first preseason game," wrote Falk to start a thread of highlights breaking down the team's offensive performance.

From "drag screens" to "hammer sets" watch as Ben shares examples of how the Kings offense can continue to be a powerhouse in the coming season below:
