The Sacramento Kings finally got the easy win they’ve been in need of. After a handful of very close games going in both directions, the Kings got a comfortable win against the Orlando Magic Monday night. It ended with a final score of 136-111 in favor of Sacramento.

While there are usually some pretty wild stats in any massive win like this, especially when the winning team scores 126 points, this game seemed to have more notable box score statistics than most. That’s why we wanted to give readers the cliff notes version of how the Kings took care of business in such a convincing fashion.

Wild Stat from the massive Kings win: 23 3-pointers

The Kings set a new franchise record for 3-pointers made in this game by converting on 23 of their 46 attempts from behind the arc. They got the record on a late Matthew Dellavedova ma

ke that was his first made 3-pointer since a month ago, another reminder of how out of hand things were as the final minutes played out.

Mike Brown made it well known he wanted this team to up 40 3-point shots per game and nights like this are a reminder of why that style of play can make a team like the Kings nearly unstoppable any given night.

Wild Stat from the massive Kings win: 11-13

Harrison Barnes made his presence felt in this one and by the end of the night, he had one of his most impressive offensive outings as a member of the Sacramento Kings. It’s a reminder of the role the veteran forward plays on this team and how crucial he could be to their overall success this season.

Not too long ago, Barnes was a top-notch prospect coming into the league. Many years later, he has had plenty of success but didn’t become the ‘star’ many thought he could be. Elite efficiency like 11-13 shooting shows just how good of a player he is, though.

Wild Stat from the massive Kings win: 8 Players score ten plus

Eight members of the Sacramento Kings finished with at least ten points scored by the time this one ended. That includes all of the teams’ starters, led by Barnes, and three players off of the bench.

When they are firing on all cylinders like they were against Orlando, everyone on the court becomes an offensive threat. It is not often a team can score nearly 140 points when their two star players don’t score a whole lot on their own.

De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis combined for just 23 of the Kings’ 136 points, proving the role players around them are capable of picking up when they aren’t having their greatest scoring nights.
