#1 The Kings (22-26) really had a great run winning five straight games until they ran into the San Antonio Spurs in their second game of the series to snap the win streak 120-106 on Wednesday night in San Antonio.
#2 The Kings struggled in the first half and that pretty much put them at a deficit, the Spurs head coach Gregg Poppovich always comes in with a game plan and worked it to avoid getting swept.
#3 The Spurs DeMar DeRozan led the Spurs in scoring with 26 points and five rebounds sometimes it’s hard to contain a player that’s making all the difference in a game. The Kings struggled to shut DeRozan down.
#4 The Kings De’Aaron Fox was Sacramento’s top scorer with 20 points, the Kings simply came up short with three players in double figures Delon Wright followed up with 16 and Buddy Hield with 14.
#5 The Kings will try and get back in the win column on Friday as they host the Los Angeles Kings at Golden One Center. The Lakers (30-18) have gone 6-6 in their last 12 games the Lakers lost to the Kings in their last meeting in a narrow game 123-120 on Mar 3rd at Golden One Center.
