Sacramento Kings Rally Back To Defeat Golden State Warriors

The Sacramento Kings end their summer league campaign with a victory against the Golden State Warriors.

The Sacramento Kings played their final summer league game tonight without the services of Frank Mason III, Justin Jackson, and Harry Giles. Although Sacramento was missing arguably three of their best players, it did not stop them from being victorious as they defeated the Golden State Warriors by a score of 69-67.

Game Summary

To begin the game, Sacramento started out hot as they controlled the first quarter. The Warriors, however, fired back as they outscored the Kings 26-13 in the second quarter which gave them a 40-32 lead going into halftime.

It seemed like the Kings lost their momentum and were destined to another summer league loss, but instead, they rallied in the second half as they outscored the Warriors in both the third and fourth periods. As a result, Sacramento was able to survive as they won by just two points.

Top Performers

Players that deserve the most credit for the Kings’ win tonight are Zach Auguste who recorded 13 points and 11 rebounds, Anthony Brown who scored 17 points and grabbed seven rebounds, and Wenyen Gabriel who finished with seven points and 10 rebounds.

Final Thoughts

Overall, tonight was a nice way to end summer league for the Sacramento Kings. With this win, the purple and white finish with a record of 2-3 in the Las Vegas league and 3-5 in both summer leagues.

Although I felt like the Kings underachieved these last few weeks, there were still positive signs to take away from specific individuals on the team. Hopefully, the young guys can continue to improve and gel better as a group so they can showcase good basketball once the regular season starts.
