Fans of the San Francisco 49ers are everywhere, including in Sacramento, where the NBA’s Sacramento Kings banked Saturday night.

During free throws for the visiting Philadelphia 76ers, the Kings flashed a Dallas Cowboys logo on the video board to provoke boos from a 49ers-friendly crowd. “A lot of boos have followed,” Sactown Sports reported on 1140 Kings writer Frankie Cartoscelli tweeted Saturday night. “49ers fans present are ready for tomorrow.”

The boos weren’t enough on Saturday, though, as the Kings fell to Philly 129-127.

Meanwhile, the 49ers will host the Cowboys at Levi’s Stadium in the NFC’s Divisional Round at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday. The winner advances to the NFC Championship and travels to Philadelphia to face the top-seeded Eagles, who decimated the New York Giants 38-7 on Saturday night. Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts dominated (16-for-24, 154 passing yards, three total touchdowns), as did the Eagles defense, who held Giants quarterback Daniel Jones to 135 passing yards and zero touchdowns. The Philly D collected five sacks and one interception.

It is the second straight postseason meeting between the Niners and Cowboys – San Francisco dispatched Dallas in the wild card round last year in Arlington, Texas. The Cowboys’ now infamous loss, in which Dallas failed to play even six plays, was compared this week to the death of Jesus by head coach Mike McCarthy.
