Three Kings of the Night: The Slip-Away Edition


The Sacramento Kings let another winnable game slip-away. There is no other way to put it. The Kings was in control of their game against the Lakers on Tuesday night, but once again, a lack of attention to detail cost the Kings dearly.

I will be honest with you; I was debating on whether or not to do a Three Kings column this morning, because that’s just how upset I was to watch the Kings self-destruct yet again. But I am a man of my word, and there were some performances that were worthy of being honored.

So without further or do, let’s award the Three Kings of the night, shall we?

One Star – Ben McLemore

McLemore had been on a mini-slump until last night, but his scoring touch came back to him against the Lakers, pouring in 15 points. But the bad part is most of those points came on free throws, as he was ice-cold from the field.

Two Kings – Rudy Gay

Gay once again had an all-around stellar game, with 23 points, and posting the big “5” in rebounds and assists, but in the fourth quarter, Gay went quiet, and it cost the Kings.

    The Three Kings of the night goes to Collision, who pumped in a team high 26 points, and dished out six assist. Along with Gay and McLemore, Collision was a constant on offense all game long, and for that, he deserves the highest honor.

    Naughty Kings of the Night – Sacramento’s Bench

    Once again, we had to put the Kings’ bench on a milk carton to see if anybody knew where they were, because between Sacramento and Los Angeles, the bench players went missing.
