Three Kings of the Night: The Jurassic Park Edition


Well, that was a tough pill to swallow. Instead of giving the Toronto Raptors a royal pain at Sleep Train Arena last night, the Kings instead stepped into Jurassic Park and was eaten alive by the dino’s from Toronto.

It was yet another display that show Kings nation that without DeMarcus Cousins, the Kings are loss and confused. Yes, there were a few Kings who continues to do everything they can to try to make up for the loss of Boogies production, but who are we kidding? The Kings need Boogie back!

Although the Kings were strung up by the ball eating predators, there were three performances from the Kings that did standout, and while holding back our tears and doing incantations to get Boogie back on the court, let’s handout the Three Kings of the night.

One King – Derrick Williams

One question I have is: Why on earth is Williams getting sporadic playing time? Every time Williams is on the court, he provides a spark for the Kings. He did his duty again last night, scoring 18 points, and keeping the Kings in the game when Toronto was looking like it was about to run away from them.

  • Two Kings – Rudy Gay

    Gay once again tried to be Mr. Everything for the Kings with Cousins not present. Gay had a double-double, scoring 20 points and dishing out 10 assist to go along with snagging six rebounds. But he committed four turnovers, which once again hurt the Kings chances.

    Three Kings – Ben McLemore

    The Three Kings of the night goes to McLemore, who is starting to show more consistency in his game. B-More led the Kings with 21 points, and although he could had been a big help on the defensive end, his offense kept the Kings in the game when Toronto was scoring at will, but his offense kept the Kings in the game. And he delivered a thunderous dunk that you have to see to believe:

    The Naughty King of the Night – Sacramento’s Defense

    Where was the Kings’ defense? The Raptors torched the Kings from the outside, hitting 10 three-pointers, and shooting 50 percent from the field for the game. The Kings must get back to playing consistent defense.
