Kings fall to 1-8 since trade of Cousins



Last night the Sacramento Kings dropped to 1-8 since the trade of Damarcus Cousins in February. Their only victory has come against the Denver Nuggets, in their first game after the trade.  Last night the Kings played the Denver Nuggets at home again, losing 105-92. They were down early and showed a lack of energy at the start. They made a run to cut the lead, only to see it go back up.


The Kings were down 10 at the half, 54-44. They made a run in the third quarter, cutting the lead to 6. They made an early run in the fourth to cut the lead to 2 before falling behind by double digits.  Newcomers Buddy Hield and Tyreke Evans finished with 17 and 16 points respectively. Willie Cauley-Stein and Kosta Koufos were the only other Kings in double figures with 13 and 10 points.


Immediately after the trade the Kings were only one game out of the 8th spot in the playoffs. They are now 5 1/2 games out with 16 games to play. With a record of 25-41, it is questionable that the Kings can reach 30 wins this year. There were a lot of empty seats at the Golden One Center last night, as some fans are not happy with the team for trading Cousins. A season that started with playoff hopes, has once again turned into a season of disarray with very little hope of the team being competitive next season.

    Please add my name to the list of people that couldn’t care less about the Sacramento Kings. Is there any chance of putting together a “Week Without of Kings Coverage” by the media?
