Jack and I went to the Sacramento Kings versus Denver Nuggets basketball game. This was probably the most excruciating loss that I can remember seeing. The Nuggets won the game by the score of 106 to 105 on a three pointer at the buzzer. It was first time that Nuggets had a lead in the game.
The Kings ran out to a ten point lead in the first quarter. They stretched the lead to 16 points at half-time. Although they struggled in the third quarter, the Kings still led by 10 points at the end of third quarter.
In the fourth quarter, the Kings played well enough to win the game. They got some favorable calls by the refs. Unforunately, they missed four straight free throws in the last 36 seconds, two by Miller and two by Udrih, to leave the door open for the Nuggets. For the game, the Kings went 19 for 31 or 61% from the free throw line. The missed free throws were the reason that they lost the game.
I do not want to think about the game any more than that...
The crowd seemed slightly larger than some of the previous games I have been to this year. The box score shows 15,055, compared to 13,000 for most of the previous game. They also announced that Wednesday game against the Celtics is sold out.
