2019 Kings versus Celtics
After having brunch at Echo & Rig in the Sawyer hotel, Larkin, Cindy, Sharon and I went to the Sacramento Kings versus Boston Celtics NBA game. It was an odd 12:30 pm tip-off.
The Kings led by as much as ten points in the first half. Trailing most of the fourth quarter, they kept the game close. On the strength of Hield and Bogdanovic's shooting and two clutch free throws by Holmes, the Kings won the game by the score of 100 to 99. Marcus Smart had a runner bounce around and off the rim at the buzzer.
Buddy Hield was the King's leading scorer. He had 35 points on 14 for 24 from the field and 7 for 12 from three. Hield didn't have a free throw?!?
I am disappointed that we didn't get a chance to see Fox or Bagley. The silver lining with their injuries is that the Kings are going to have to ride Hield and Bogdanovic.
Jaylen Brown was the leading scorer for the Celtics. He had 18 points on 7 for 16 from the field and 4 for 7 from three. Brown also didn't have a free throw...
The four of us ended up talking to Hunter and Yuli at half-time. They came around to the top of our section. We were in row B, seats 11, 12, 13 and 14 in section 108.
The four of us saw a game together last November.
The Kings have one win and one loss in games that I have seen in the 2019-2020 NBA season.
