Per Hammond:

The soonest the Kings could potentially clinch the Pacific Division is Friday. Here’s how: A Kings regulation/overtime win Thursday vs. San Jose, and a Phoenix loss in regulation Friday at St. Louis. This would give the Kings 95 points and 35 ROWs. Phoenix could then only get a maximum of 95 points and 35 ROWs. The Kings own the third tie-breaker (head-to-head points).

Of course, the Kings could also still miss the playoffs.

No pressure.
