2024 Kings versus 76ers

Drew and I went to the Sacramento Kings versus Philadelphia 76ers NBA Basketball game. Drew got his seats upgraded by his ticket representative to section 121, row FF, seats 1 and 2. The seats had Club Access. I have had a chance to go there twice before with Phil Sanborn [2017 Kings versus Pacers and 2017 Kings versus Grizzlies]. While nice, it was very crowded and doesn't compare to the club level at Chase Center.

Leading 60 to 48 at halftime, the Kings cruised to a 108 to 96 victory. As Drew noted, it was nice to see a win that was a nail-biter.

Keegan Murray and De'Aaron Fox were the high scorers for the Kings. They both had 23 points. Murray was 9 for 20 from the field, 3 for 11 from three and 2 for 3 from the free throw line, while Fox was 8 for 18 from the field, 2 for 6 from three and 5 for 6 from the free throw line.

Sabonis posted his 54th consecutive double-double, breaking a tie with Kevin Love for the longest streak since the 1976-77 merger between the NBA and ABA. Sabonis is nowhere close to the all-time record of 227 straight double-doubles held by Chamberlain, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Tyrese Maxey was the high scorer for the 76ers. Maxey had 29 points on 10 for 16 from the field, 5 for 7 from three and 4 for 6 from the free throw line. Maxey scored Philadelphia's first 16 points and was a one-man show offensively in the first quarter with 21 of the 25 points (84%) for the 76ers.

The Kings now have 4 wins and 2 losses in games that I have seen in person during the 2023-2024 season.
