2004 Kings versus Celtics

Larkin and I went to the Sacramento Kings versus Boston Celtics game. The Kings beat the Celtics 127 to 111. It was an interesting game from a number of angles, including:

  • Divac had a triple double with 14 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists.

  • Rookie Darius Songaila -- traded by the Celtics to Sacramento last summer -- scored a career-high 17 points in his first NBA start.

  • The Kings matched a franchise record with 16 3-pointers.

  • Kings also set a record with their 28th straight home victory against Eastern Conference teams. No East team has won in Sacramento since Indiana on March 3, 2002.

  • A leak in the roof briefly delayed the game in the third quarter when water began to collect in a spot near midcourt. A ball boy sat near the spot with a towel for the rest of the game.

  • One of our vendors called Larkin in the late afternoon and invited us to attend a dinner and chalk talk at the game. I did not make it in time, but Joe did. He attended a 45 minute chalk talk and question and answer period with King's assistant coach Elston Turner on the 4th floor of Arco Arena.
