Last evening, the much hyped Goon Squad Classic took place void of a few big name players. Kevin Durant was a no-show, not only missing in action from the Sacramento game but skipping out on a Houston charity game as well. Former King Kevin Martin didn’t make it. Washington Wizards star John Wall held his promise to attend but refused to suit up nor did he even do his famed “dougie” dance when urged on by the crowd. But not even they could ruin what was a spectacular night of basketball in Sacramento.
Some highlights of last evening’s game:
Hassan Whiteside dunk:
Three minutes of mixed highlights including a 360 windmill dunk from Tyreke Evans:
As for non game action, Kings rookies Jimmer Fredette and Isaiah Thomas took part in a hilarious halftime dance-off put on by Donte Greene. You can see the video below thanks to Bleedin’s Blake Ellington:
And for those wondering, Donte Green’s team (paired with Spencer Hawes, Jason Thompson and teh Jimmer) won the shootout 167-164 in the overtime contest. Yes, overtime. Just a wonderful night of basketball – thanks go to all involved who put in effort to get the game done.
