The Sacramento Kings are rolling through the NBA’s best teams with reckless abandoned. On Sunday afternoon they took down the vaunted Los Angeles Clippers 113-110 at the Staples Center to earn their seventh victory in their last eight games.
De’Aaron Fox continued his All-Star play with 36 points and seven assists to lead Sacramento’s fourth-quarter push over LA. Buddy Hield broke out of his brief shooting slump to finish with 22 points and nine rebounds, while Tyrese Haliburton contributed 13 points himself, including two huge three-pointers in the final quarter.
The Kings close out this murderous row of tough opponents Tuesday night when they host the Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia 76ers at the Golden 1 Center. It will be another great test to see just how legit this squad is as they make their push to be considered as a playoff contender.
