2012 Kings versus Bucks

Jack and I went to the Sacramento Kings versus Milwaukee Bucks NBA basketball game. Trailing by 21 points at half-time, the Kings rallied in the second half to beat the Bucks by the score of 103 to 100!

Marcus Thornton had 27 points for the Kings on 10 for 23 from the floor and 5 for 5 from the free throw line. In the first half, Thornton was 1 for 8 from the field. Tyreke Evans added 26 points on 8 for 18 from the floor and 9 for 9 from the free throw line. DeMarcus Cousins fouled out with 4:35 remaining in the fourth quarter with 19 points and 15 rebounds.

Brandon Jennings led Milwaukee with 31 points on 12 for 23 from the floor, 6 for 10 from three point range and 1 for 4 from the free throw line. Jennings looked very good.

I am not convinced that Jimmer Fredette is an NBA player. He had 7 points in 23 minutes. Fredette looked ineffective trying to cover Jennings and Beno Udrih on defense.

The Kings fired Paul Westphal Thursday morning before the game and appointed assistant coach Keith Smart as the head coach. Smart was head coach for Golden State last season.

I was sure in April that I had seen the Kings play in Sacramento for the last time. When the strike was finally settled, I went back and forth about continuing to participate in the season ticket group. At the last minute, I decide to stay. While I am still not sure it was the right decision, I had a very nice evening at the game with Jack.

The Kings now have 1 win and 0 losses in games that I have seen in the 2011-2012 season.
