The Sacramento Kings are beginning to figure things out, and the results are winds as they survived a late rally by the Toronto Raptors Friday night to come away with a gutsy 126-124 victory at Amalie Arena. The win was their third-straight and brought them to within just two games of the .500 mark for the season.
Forward Harrison Barnes continued his strong play this season scoring a team-high 26 points. He also grabbed seven boards and dished out five assists. Buddy Hield and De’Aaron Fox combined for 46 points to carry the scoring load as both Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley had rough nights finding the basket.
Overall, the Kings offense was clicking for most of the night as they shot a stellar 55.1 percent from the floor, including 44.4 percent from deep. Combine that with another 30-assist night and generally good things happen.
Sacramento will not have much time to enjoy this victory as they take on the Miami Heat on Saturday night in South Florida.
