Well hold your hot dog. Not only did the Kings win twice this weekend, they did so in a very impressive way.
On Saturday night, the Kings traveled to Utah, and plastered the Jazz after falling behind by 15 early. The Kings never looked back after an impressive second quarter…continuing to keep their foot on the throttle as they took a 20 point lead into the 4th quarter. The Jazz never gave up and the Kings offense struggled with ball movement in the final 8-10 minutes allowing the gap to be closed to within a few points but the Kings held on for their first road victory of the season – a very impressive one against a legit playoff team in the West.
The Kings then flew home for a date with the talented yet dysfunctional Warriors last night. They had no trouble at all. Beno Udrih and Tyreke Evans for the second consecutive night flourished as they dominated on the offensive side of the ball, getting to the basket any time they wished. Donte Greene also joined the party having his second consecutive strong outing as well. They continually kept the Warriors down 8-10 points all night long until they blew it wide open in the early 4th, leading by 21 at one point. The gap was closed late as the Kings put in the reserves and Warriors continued their attempt to keep the score at a respectable level but the contest was never in doubt.
Last nights game was full of thrilling plays most notably Donte Green’s high flying alley-opp and the Greene to Thompson, three-quarters inbound alley-opp with only .4 seconds on the clock…which you can find below:
