Wait a second…Ben McLemore just faked the behind the back pass on the way for the lay-up?
That's two fouls on Rudy Gay so Derrick Williams checks in with 7:56 left in the first quarter.
Omri Casspi is mastering the art of cherry picking.
3 turnovers for the Suns in the first 2 minutes. Ray McCallum with 2 steals.
Jeff Hornacek just told ref Bennie Adams he was horrible the last game he officiated for Phoenix and earned a technical foul. Funny stuff
53 seconds in and Hornacek picks up a tech.
Sim Bhullar wins jump all without leaving the floor. Well, being 7-5 has its advantages vs. 6-10 opponent
Sacramento sticking with the starting five of Ray McCallum, Ben McLemore, Omri Casspi, Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins tonight against Suns.
Knight has a sprained left ankle.
No Brandon Knight for the Suns tonight
George Karl continued to praise DeMarcus Cousins' defense last night, called his game one of the best he's seen from a big man.
Unfortunately, Bighorns PG David Stockton is out. He flew to Seattle to be with fiancée for couple's first child. Coming off triple double.
I am in Reno to catch Bighorns-Skyforce game and see the slimmer, improving Sim Bhullar. The 7-5 center has dropped 40 lbs., down to 255
Rudy Gay (knee) is also probable
A sore right foot has been added to the right calf strain for DeMarcus Cousins on the injury report. He's probable tonight at Phoenix
Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins are both listed as probable on the injury report for tonight's game in Phoenix.
Wow love to see all the support in AZ from Kings Nation! I have 4 tix for tonights game!
Both Andre Miller and Omri Casspi have said they want to come back to the Kings next season - both saying it feels like home in Sacramento.
Let's make it 4 in a row in AZ! Road games always a great test for our teams cohesiveness.
George Karl on McCallum:"I think these last two weeks is probably the best he's played." Commended how he played against Chris Paul and Wall
That Andre Miller Crossover Tho 😳😳😳👀....
Great win tonight!! Feels good to get 3 in a row!!
"The energy of the team and the spirit of the team right now since I have been here this is by far the best." - George Karl
"The fans deserve a winning team and winning basketball." - Omri Casspi
Kings actually had a 3 game winning streak in November just before Cousins' illness. My bad
"I told them we stunk." -George Karl on what he told his team after they gave up 70 to Philly in the first half.
In other news, Karl likes the match up for his Tar Heels vs Wisconsin
Karl said he's interested to see the league report on what was/wasn't a foul late in the game
Karl: Gay, Nik, Omri were "soft" at times covering Covington
At least the Kings don't have to see Ish Smith again this season.
Kings' three-game win streak is the longest since they won five under Michael Malone after losing the season opener.
I didn't realize McCallum took 17 shots (he made five). Kings shot 36.1% but had only 10 turnovers.
Cousins finished with 33 points (8/27 shooting), 17 rebounds, 4 blocks, 4 steals. Gay 21 points (6/19 shooting) 8 rebounds 3 assists.
