"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.
