Recently, the Sacramento Kings earned a victory against the Phoenix Suns in their preseason opener. In the game, which guys on the Kings’ roster stood out as top performers of the match?
On Monday night, the Sacramento Kings finished their first preseason game of the 2018-2019 campaign and ended up leaving with the victory as they defeated the Phoenix Suns by a score of 106-102. With this win, the Kings have a preseason record of 1-0 and will have the opportunity to build on that when they face off against the Los Angeles Lakers next Friday night.
A lot of excitement happened during the contest. The Kings were able to debut their new offensive system to the world which caused many Kings fans to feel optimistic about their team. To finish the game, the Kings were able to score 106 points (last year’s average was 98.8) while shooting 47.6% (39-82) from the floor, 44% (11-25) from the three-point line, and 60.7% (17-28) from the free-throw stripe. The team also was able to distribute 24 assists as well.
Yes, the Kings’ offense executed well as a collective whole as 10 of the 11 players who played scored in the game. But honestly, there were only a few guys from the group whose performances really elevated the Kings in the contest.
