2010 Kings versus Suns plus Brockness Monster
With the Kings running a number of special sales to sell tickets, I bought a package that included two lower deck tickets (section 113, row t, seats 5 and 6) and a limited edition Jon Brockman t-shirt for the Sacramento Kings versus the Phoenix Suns NBA Basketball game at the last minute and Jack and I went to the game.
After falling behind by 20 points in the second quarter, the Kings rallied to make it a game in the fourth quarter. Beno Udrih tied the game for Sacramento at 103 with a tough jumper with 1:49 remaining. Missing a couple of shots right at the rim, the Kings ended up losing the game by the score of 113 to 109.
For the Kings, Tyreke Evans had 27 points on 10 for 23 from the field, 0 for 1 from three and 7 for 7 from the free throw line. Evans added 11 rebounds and 7 assists. Omri Casspi added 24 points on 10 for 19 from the field, 3 for 6 from three and 1 for 3 from the free throw line. I continue to really enjoy watching these two Kings rookies.
To my surprise, Westphal played Jon Brockman rather than Spencer Hawes on Amare Stoudemire for much of the second half.
Much to Jack's delight, the difference in the game was Steve Nash. He led all scorers with 30 points on 8 for 16 from the field, 1 for 3 from three and 13 for 13 from the free throw line. Nash also had 12 assists. Nash is an amazing passer.
