Buddy Hield is extremely confident that his Sacramento Kings will make the NBA playoffs for the first time since 2006.

"I'd bet my house on it," Hield said Wednesday, according to ESPN. "I'd make a lot of money to buy the next one.

"You can't bet your dogs. I'm just confident. If I don't say it, (reporters) will say, 'He's not confident enough.' That's how I was raised. I trust in God, and hopefully, he favors us."

Sacramento's 12-year postseason drought is currently the longest in the Association, with the Phoenix Suns following behind at eight years. Currently, only one game separates the 30-27 Kings from the 32-27 Los Angeles Clippers, who hold the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

"Even when we were under .500, I was checking the standings to see where we're at," Hield added. "That's human nature."

The 26-year-old Hield is averaging a career-best 20.5 points per game to lead the Kings in scoring. He also ranks fourth in the league with a 44.9 3-point shooting percentage.
