Kings 99, Pacers 94: Kings win! Kings win!

The Kings finally snap their 8 game losing streak in Indiana My hands are shaking as I type these words: the Sacramento Kings have won a basketball game. Kings fans have been shipwrecked on loser island for seemingly an eternity, and finally there are sails on the horizon. Huzzah! The Indiana Pacers were the victim tonight, and although the game became dicey down the stretch, the Kings emerged victorious 99-94. I'm crying. The Kings were led by Rudy Gay scoring 31 points on 22 shots. Gay was scoring seemingly at will in the first half, getting to his sweet spots with ease and burying shots...

Pacers final score: Kings hold off Pacers 99-94

The Pacers' comeback effort fell short on missed threes, falling to Sacramento at home. C.J. Miles and David West each scored 17 for the Pacers. The one thing the Indiana Pacers had going for them in an otherwise lost night was their ability to close big gaps with strong play to end each of the four quarters. Unfortunately, the play at the end of quarters didn't overshadow what was largely entire quarters of poor play by the Pacers, who couldn't withstand a pair of late buckets from Rudy Gay and Darren Collison sending the Pacers into the loss column, ending the Sacramento Kings losing...

Kings vs. Pacers Preview: Will this losing streak ever end?

Sacramento's riding an 8 game losing streak into tonight's action against the Indiana Pacers.  This is the final game of the road trip and hopefully Sacramento can end it and the month of January with a rare win.  Today's action tips off at 4:00 pm on Comcast SportsNet California and on KHTK 1140. 3 THINGS TO LOOK FOR 1. The Pacers don't have much offense without star Paul George, but their defense is still very good, ranking 8th in the NBA.  Hibbert and George Hill do a great job of protecting the paint and perimeter respectively, but the whole team is very solid in their...

Where's the accountability, Vivek?

The Kings continue to flounder, but there's no accountability. The Sacramento Kings extended their losing streak to an eighth game on Friday, losing behing yet another lackluster effort from the team. DeMarcus Cousins, er, excuse me, All-Star DeMarcus Cousins, played well. So did Rudy Gay. But once again, they lacked the support they needed. The second unit was once again an embarrassment. In fact, the whole team is an embarrassment. So where is the accountability? Before the season, Vivek Ranadivé told the Sacramento Bee: "[T]his year, let's be clear, it is about wins and...

DeMarcus Cousins and his 'cousins' star in car dealership commercial

We mentioned earlier this week, how the old man outfit DeMarcus Cousins was sporting on Instagram was for a local car dealership commercial. Well, it appears Boogie, the now NBA All-Star, is the spokesperson for Chase Chevrolet. A commercial featuring Cousins showed up on the company's YouTube channel Friday. It looks like all of the big man's "cousins" work at the car dealership.

Kings something, Cavaliers something higher: Meh

I mean, really. Who cares. There was a basketball game going on tonight, but given how much effort was collectively put in by the Sacramento Kings, you wouldn't know it. The Cleveland Cavaliers were red-hot coming into the game, but didn't even play particularly well and still slowly ran away from the Kings by a final score of 101-90. The Kings were led by their All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins, who was again inefficient offensively. In Tyrone Corbin's new "offense", Cousins has been operating more and more in the high post, which has resulted in a precipitous drop in his shooting...

Final Score: Cleveland Cavaliers beat Sacramento Kings 101-90

Behind a big night from all three members of the Big Three, the Cavs won big against the Kings. 19 days ago, the Cleveland Cavaliers were routed by the Sacramento Kings, losing 103-84 without LeBron James in the midst of a long West Coast road trip. In that, game the Cavs offense looked stalled and struggled to score any points consistently. Defensively, Kings center DeMarcus Cousins dominated the Cavs inside and scored 26 points in the Kings' win. How things can change in 19 days. With LeBron  playing through a wrist injury after being listed as doubtful, Cleveland extend its win streak...

Rudy Gay delivers with the 360-dunk

Being able to do a 360 degree turn and then dunk the ball emphatically is not something many players in the NBA can do, but Rudy Gay not only did it, he made it look easy.

Kings vs. Cavaliers Preview: Sacramento looks to succeed in another King's domain

It doesn't look like the Kings will face LeBron James at all this season, but even without him, the Cavaliers are a very potent offensive team.  Besides, with how badly the Kings have been struggling as of late, they can't afford to take any team lightly, lest this losing streak extend to eight games. Today's action tips off at 4:30 pm on Comcast SportsNet California and on KHTK 1140. 3 THINGS TO LOOK FOR 1. Cleveland has started to figure things out since the Kings last played him, although a large part of that has been LeBron James coming back healthy.  Now James is absent but even...

DeMarcus Cousins replaces Kobe Bryant in 2015 All-Star Game

A grievous error has now been corrected.  After being left off of the All-Star team by NBA coaches yesterday, DeMarcus Cousins has now officially been named an All-Star by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver according to a report from Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski.  Cousins is set to replace Kobe Bryant in the game. Even though Cousins is very deserving of the spot, I'm still surprised that the NBA chose him over fellow snub Damian Lillard.  Maybe it's just because I'm a Kings fan and am used to expecting the worst result possible.  Whatever the case, DeMarcus Cousins is now an All-Star and we...

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Sacramento Kings: Television information, start time, game preview

The Cleveland Cavaliers are set to take on the Sacramento Kings, likely without LeBron James. The Cleveland Cavaliers, in the midst of an eight game win streak, finish up a short home stand with a game against a struggling Sacramento Kings team. Led by DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento is one of the more fascinating teams in the NBA this season due to Cousins' emergence and the oddly timed (to say the least) firing of Mike Malone. The Kings also have a win this season over the Cavs, a 103-84 win for Sacramento where Boogie scored 26 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. Like tonight's game, the Cavs...

DeMarcus Cousins snubbed of spot in All-Star Game

In a season full of downers for Kings fans, the announcement of the 2015 All-Star reserves was yet another one as star center DeMarcus Cousins was left off of the team by the league's coaches.  Instead, James Harden, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, Tim Duncan and LaMarcus Aldridge were named. This is the second straight year that Cousins has been snubbed of an All-Star selection despite putting up All-Star numbers.  This year he's averaging 23.8 points a game, 12.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.6 blocks in just 33.8 minutes a game.  Those numbers are...

The Sactown Royalty Show Ep 66: Andy Glockner

Andy Glockner of The Cauldron joins us to discuss the strange path the Kings are going down. The Sactown Royalty Show is back! This week I'm joined by Andy Glockner, Executive Editor of The Cauldron. Andy was a great guest. In addition to offering an outsider's opinion, Andy has some unique knowledge of the Kings having spent a few days interviewing Kings execs in preparation for an upcoming book. It was a great conversation, and I recommend checking it out. This episode was recorded Tuesday, January 27th, so there's no conversation of Wednesday's loss to the Raptors. Check Out Sports...

Kings 102, Raptors 119: Same story, different version

The Kings fell apart defensively in the third quarter, again, allowing an avalanche of threes to bury them The Sacramento Kings haven't played since last Friday, but tonight seemed like a repeat of the epic flood unleashed by the Golden State Warriors. This time the Toronto Raptors as a team played the role Klay Thompson did single-handedly, scoring 39 points in the third quarter to essentially end the game. The final score of 119-102 was a mere formality afterwards. As has been usually the case for the Kings, the team fell apart when DeMarcus Cousins sat down. While Cousins wasn't all that...

Ben McLemore snubbed in All-Star Weekend's Rising Stars Challenge

The NBA announced the Rising Stars Challenge rosters today and much to Sacramento fans disappointment, Ben McLemore was left off the roster.  You can view the full team rosters here. Unlike previous years where the game was rookies vs. sophomores, this year's game is being billed as "USA vs. The World" with foreign born players on one team and USA born players on another.  Even still, McLemore should have been selected to the USA team. In his second year in the NBA, McLemore has improved a lot from his rookie season, averaging 11.7 points on 45.2% from the field and 35.4% from three point...

Kings vs. Raptors Preview: O Canada, I hope we actually guard thee

Boy, does it feel like forever since the last Kings game.  Due to Monday night's postponement, the Kings have had four full days off before today's game against the Toronto Raptors.  Today's action tips off at 4:30 pm on Comcast SportsNet California and on KHTK 1140. 3 THINGS TO LOOK FOR 1.  As I noted above, the Kings have had a lot of rest since playing last.  The Raptors meanwhile are on the second night of a back to back.  This is something the Kings have to be able to use to their advantage.  Breaks of that length are almost never seen in the NBA aside from the All-Star break....

A History of Incompetence: Putting the Michael Malone firing into context

Michael Malone's firing was a franchise-altering bad decisions. How does it stack up? When the Sacramento Kings unexpectedly fired Michael Malone, Kings fans figured something better was just around the corner. As time went on, it became clear that there is no next step beyond Tyrone Corbin. The team has gone into a tailspin, and we know now that Malone's firing was a bad decision that irreparably altered the course of the franchise. Kings fans are accustomed to heartache like this. Look no further than the top-10 protected pick that the Kings owe the Chicago Bulls (by way of the Cleveland...

The Sacramento Kings front office is running out of time

There is absolutely no doubt now that Michael Malone's unexpected firing was a big mistake (although the Kings' refusal to admit so is incredibly frustrating).  The Kings have gone just 5-14 since, a record worse than that of the Philadelphia 76ers, a team that has been accused of outright tanking.  Even worse, the quality of opponent over these past 19 games has been far from the best.  The average winning percentage of the opponent over those 19 games has been just .495.  That's compared to Malone's 11-13 record against opponents with a winning percentage of .549, and his 9-6 record...

Charlotte Hornets interested in Ramon Sessions

The Hornets suffered a big blow to their playoff hopes recently as it was announced that Kemba Walker had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee and is expected to miss six weeks.  Charlotte is currently 19-26 and occupying the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference race. So where do the Kings fit into all this?  Well apparently Kings backup guard Ramon Sessions is one of the players that Charlotte is targeting to help at the PG position while Walker is out, according to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski.  Sessions is well known to the Hornets front office as he played there during the...
