The Sacramento Kings are up to No. 5 in the NBA in pace. They are No. 1 in scoring (120 ppg) and No. 2 in offensive rating, effective field-goal percentage and true shooting percentage. – 12:06 AM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
ESPN’s Mark Jones & Mark Jackson cite Kings as one of NBA’s “great surprises.”
Jackson: “Really as good a fan base as we’ve seen in the league, so well deserved that they have experienced some success, and Mike Brown is doing a great job.”
* Jackson was a finalist for the job. – 11:44 PM

Kevin Knox II set a season-high with 21 points (6-8 FG, 6-8 3FG, 3-4 FT) tonight against Utah. It is his third game in a row setting a new season-high in scoring (11 points vs SAC [11/20], 17 vs DEN [11/22]), and his first 20+ point game since April 3, 2019. – 11:42 PM

I didn’t think the Pistons would beat Denver AND Utah this week, but this is what I was getting at after the Kings loss when some people thought the sky was falling. It was an encouraging L considering the injuries, and here we are. Pistons are playing their best ball right now. – 11:26 PM

The Thunder won the third quarter 34-15 and lead the Nuggets 97-84.
If it holds, it’ll be OKC’s fourth 15+ point comeback this season. Right now OKC and Sacramento have three such comebacks, which leads the NBA. – 9:53 PM

Hawks left that door wide-open in the 4th. Atlanta was 5-18 FG for 18 pts and had 7 turnovers.
Unfortunately, the Kings had 18 pts, 6 turnovers and shot 7-20 FG in the 4th.
Looked like some tiiiiired legs tonight. – 9:52 PM

Not this time. The Kings took a 7-game win streak into Wednesday night’s back-to-back in Atlanta. Sacramento looked sluggish, but kept it close. In the end, Trae Young was too much as the Hawks handed the Kings a 115-106 loss. Here are 6 quick thoughts as the streak ends. – 9:51 PM

B2B 3s by the Hawks put them up 110-97 w/ 3:58 remaining in the game. Hawks had a catch and shoot triple from De’Andre Hunter then a logo 3 from Trae Young.
They’re now 10-26 from 3. They’ve made 21 total 3s in their last 2 games. They made 21 3s over three games prior. – 9:39 PM

They haven’t had a back-to-back in a month so you’re going to need to fight through some mental and physical fatigue. – 8:52 PM

Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
The Hawks poured in 72 points in tonight’s first half (season-high for points in either half), including 37 points in the second quarter (season-high for points in a second quarter). – 8:39 PM
Lauren L. Williams @WilliamsLaurenL
HALF: Hawks 72, Kings 57
Hawks scored 72 points in the 1H, the most all season. Through two quarters, the Hawks shot 56.6% from the floor, but there’s still some trouble from long range. They’re 4-14 from distance. – 8:36 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
Kings trail 72-57 at the half. Malik Monk has 15 points. No other Kings player is in double figures. – 8:36 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
This might be the first bad game this season for De’Aaron Fox. There is time to recover, but he’s 1-of-6 from the field and the Hawks guards are feasting. – 8:33 PM

1Q: Hawks 35, Kings 26
Hawks really began to heat up toward the end the pace seemed to get going. Nate McMillan wanted the Hawks to set the tempo for the game and they’ve done that early.
Young 11p (5-7 FG) – 8:06 PM

For as poorly as Kings played in the first quarter in Atlanta, they trail by just 9 at 35-26. Trey Lyles leads Kings with 8 points. – 8:05 PM
