The Sacramento Kings earned their fifth win of the season on Nov. 22, and Zach Randolph led the way to receive the player of the game honors.
The Sacramento Kings dominated the Los Angeles Lakers on their home court 113-102 on Nov. 22. The Kings virtually led from pillar to post and had a handful of players vying for the player of the game honors, but the clear winner in my eyes was Zach Randolph.
Randolph played 30 minutes on Wednesday evening and scored 22 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, three steals, two 3-pointers made and just two turnovers. He shot 10 of 16 from the field, two of five from 3-point distance, and was a positive nine in the plus/minus category. Overall, it was an outstanding statistical evening for Z-Bo.
The big man started off hot with 11 of Sacramento’s first 15 points. Z-Bo pushed the Kings into the lead from the beginning of the game. From then on, his presence on the court opened the floor for teammates as Randolph continued to make the correct plays by scoring himself or passing to open teammates. The veteran brought his A game tonight and Sacramento was rewarded with the victory.
The Kings dominated the battle down low against the Lakers. Willie Cauley-Stein pushed for the player of the evening honors with his 26 points and six rebounds, but ultimately I felt Randolph deserved it because of the better overall stat line and I just felt he made a more significant impact when the game was still in question.
It was an entertaining national television game, and hopefully, Sacramento gains momentum from the win heading into Saturday’s game against the LA Clippers.
