The Sacramento Kings wrapped up their brief 3-game scrimmage season in the Orlando Bubble with a come-from-behind 106—102 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers Monday afternoon at The Arena.
The game marked the return of Richaun Holmes and Harrison Barnes, who had been away from the team for various chicken wing and Coronavirus reasons. Both looked good, finishing with six points and five rebounds, and 12 points and six rebounds, respectively. Both should be ready to go with no limitations on Friday when the Kings kickoff their 8-game restart against the San Antonio Spurs.
De’Aaron Fox played in his second scrimmage and is looking more comfortable on the floor, as he contributed 12 points, six assists, and four rebounds in 27 minutes of action. He too will be fully ready for Friday’s game
As for the contest itself, Sacramento was again outplayed by the opponent’s starters and fell behind early. But the Kings are one of the league’s deepest teams and the reserves stabilized things and eventually pulled ahead of the Clippers’ reserves in the final minutes with a little help from Mr. Big Shots Nemanja Bjelica who delivered the long-distance dagger once again to seal the win.
But, enough talk, check out the highlights and see it all for yourself.
