2022 Kings versus Pelicans

Tuesday evening, Larkin and I met for dinner at Polanco Cantina. I had Baja Fish Tacos [beer battered fresh local rock cod, chipotle crema, finely shredded cabbage, avocado and pico on four tortillas served with back beans]. Afterwards, we headed to the Sacramento Kings versus New Orleans Pelicans NBA basketball game. We were seated in section 126, row S, seats 5 and 6.

Outscored in every quarter, the Kings lost the game by the score of 123 to 109. Neither De'Aaron Fox or Domantas Sabonis played.

The high scorer for the Kings was Damian Jones. He had 22 points on 8 for 10 from the field, 1 for 1 from three and 5 for 5 from the free throw line. Jones was the 30th pick in the 2016 draft by Golden State.

The high scorer for the Pelicans was Jaxson Hayes. He had 23 points on 10 from 14 from the field, 2 for 3 from three and 1 for 3 from the free throw line. Hayes also had 12 rebounds. He was the 8th pick in the 2019 draft by Atlanta. CJ McCollum also had 23 points for the Pelicans.
The Pelicans are going to make the play-in tournament. Overall, I wasn't really very impressed with their team.

This was the last home game of the 2021-2022 season. The Kings have 1 win and 5 losses in games that I have seen in the 2021-2022 season.

The Kings have now missed the playoffs a NBA record 16 consecutive seasons. I went to the last Kings playoff game in May of 2006.
