SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The Sacramento Kings honored the teams from Paradise High School Wednesday night.

After going through the destructive Camp Fire, this was a welcome break for the girls and boys basketball teams.

They got to throw t-shirts up into the stands and the Kings also made them their own special shirts that say "Butte Strong."

The team has had to play all of their games on the road, but they say it's not about the wins and losses. 

"It's for all of us and I don't think we're all going to be playing for the same reason as before, we're playing differently and representing our town which is really cool," said Carolanne Christie, a Paradise High School basketball player. "Every team we meet has given us dinner and bags which is really cool." 

The team will eventually be playing and practicing at Butte College.

Lightning-caused fires will be a concern over the next few days as thunderstorms are in the forecast. We stay warm to begin next week but cool into the 70s by Wednesday.
