After spending the afternoon visiting her mom and Janie, Sharon went to the Sacramento Kings versus San Antonio Spurs game with her brother Tim. With the Kings leading 54 to 48 with a minute to go in the second quarter, the Spurs scored 8 points to take a 56 to 54 lead at halftime. This stretched into a 16 to 3 run during the third quarter. The Kings trailed by as much as 17 points and never got closer than 8 points; they lost by the score of 108 to 99.
Jack and I watched the game in high definition. As I noted on opening night, the Kings offense is pathetic. They continue to rely on individual players breaking down the defense or making an outside shot. The Kings only had 10 assists!
Duncan methodically picked the Kings apart. He had 35 points on 13 of 17 shooting and had 14 rebounds.
