NBA Ball Game Recap:
Sacramento 32 points below their season average, suffocating the Kings in a 101-86 victory. “We won the game tonight with our defense — that was it,” coach Luke Walton said. “We’ve been seeing the progress, but it was really good to see a full game of it.”
Sacramento entered the game ranked third in both field goal and 3-point percentage, but came up dry in both departments, hitting just 34.8 and 24.0 percent, respectively.
And it wasn’t like the Lakers’ usually reliable offense was clicking either, as they too struggled from the field (41.4), 3-point arc (31.6) and free throw line (7-of-17).
