Final Thoughts

Overall, last night’s contest was encouraging to watch if one is a Kings fan. Not only was Sacramento able to win on the road, but they won based on the play of BOTH their veterans and youth.

For the young guys, the group was led by De’Aaron Fox who is looking more and more comfortable while playing against NBA competition. He finished the game recording 15 points, six rebounds, and four assists.

In terms of the veteran players, guys like Zach Randolph, Garrett Temple, and Kosta Koufos helped the Kings immensely in winning the game. For the match, the trio combined for 58 points and 31 rebounds while shooting 23-47 from the floor.

Overall, great effort by the Kings last night. With this victory under their belts, they finished their six-game road trip with a 3-3 record which is a solid accomplishment for this group of guys.

Can their momentum continue on Friday when they face off against the elite Golden State Warriors?
