My Last Kings Game?!? [2011 Kings versus Jazz]

After spending most of the day at an Outlaws scrimmage, Jack and I went to the Sacramento Kings versus Utah Jazz NBA Basketball game. I suspect that this is the last time that I will see the Kings play in Sacramento. In less than three weeks, they will probably announce that they are moving to Anaheim. At some point, I will estimate how many Kings games I have seen in the last 26 seasons!

After leading by more than 20 points in the first half, the Kings held on to win by the score of 106 to 97.

Tyreke Evans led all scorers with 24 points on 10 for 16 from the field, 2 for 4 from three point range and 2 for 2 from the free throw line. He added 10 assists. DeMarcus Cousins added 17 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals.

Utah was missing starters Andrei Kirilenko (knee), Devin Harris (hamstring) and Raja Bell (calf). Paul Millisap led Utah with 21 points, but I really enjoyed watching Gordon Hayward. Hayward played for the Butler NCAA Final Four team last year. He scored 19 points on 8 for 14 from the field, 2 for 3 from three point range and 1 for 2 from the free throw line.

The box score shows the attendance at 17,215, just short of a sell-out. Compared to some of the games that I have been to this year, it was a very nice crowd.

Hunter, Debbie and Snipes were also at the game. I had a nice chance to visit with both of them at half-time. I have not talked to Snipes since his car was totaled and Hunter was just back from visiting Robbie in Mississippi.

The Kings now have 3 wins and 6 losses in games that I have seen in the 2010-2011 season.
