Three Kings of The Night: The Salvation Edition


It was a night sweet salvation at the Sleep Train Arena last night, as the Sacramento Kings finally beat a team it was supposed to beat.

The Kings finally matched the energy of their opponent, Nik Stauskas finally had a breakout game, Rudy Gay’s all-around performance did not go to waste, the defense was finally good, and the bench chipped in and delivered a nice performance.

Is short, this was the performance the Kings were hoping for, as they ended a dreaded five-game homestand on a positive note. The Kings don’t have time to rest, as they head to SoCal and take on the hated Los Angeles Lakers tonight, but before we dwell on that, let’s dole out the Three Kings of the night, shall we?

One King- Darren Collison

Collision was back to his productive self, scoring 16 points while dishing out 6 assist, making ball movement a top priority on Monday night. As Collison always says:

Two Kings – Nik Stauskas

Stauskas was finally found on Monday night, and he delivered in a big way; scoring 15 points and helping out on the boards by grabbing eight rebounds. Let’s hope Stauskas can stay found and deliver more consistent production. And let’s just take a nice look at this sweet and-one from last night, shall we?

Three Kings – Rudy Gay

And the Three Kings of the night finally goes to Gay, whose 29 points, six rebound performance did not go to waste in a loss. Gay was all everything for the Kings on Monday night, and he will have to be Mr. do-it-all against the Lakers tonight.

  • Naughty King of the Night – Ryan Hollins

    This is Hollins second trip into the Naughty King slot, as he turned in a dud of a performance against the Jazz, grabbing just two rebounds and being held scoreless. Maybe the Kings do need another center to back up DeMarcus Cousins.
