Kurt Snipes and I went to the Sacramento Kings versus New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets preseason game. After trailing most of the game, the Hornets won 84 to 81.
Stojakovic gave the Hornets an 82-81 lead on a fall-away shot from near the free throw line with 25.4 seconds left. It was Peja's first game back in Sacramento since being traded for Ron Artest last January. It was also fun to see Bobby Jackson playing for the Hornets; he played 20 minutes and scored 13 points.
Both coaches played the game like it was a regular season game. Artest and Martin played more than 40 minutes. Without Bibby or Miller in the line-up, Musselman started Salmons at point guard and Abdur-Rahim at center. I was not impressed with Salmons play at point guard. It is going to interesting to see what the Kings do over the next couple of weeks while Bibby is out.
