The Sacramento Kings They grow up before our eyes. Tuesday night, Kings won over Denver Nuggets 125-115 thanks in large part to the production with which they came out of their promising tandem in the back court of Dyaron Fox and Therese Halliburton.
Walk out against disappointing Phoenix Suns On Sunday, Fox was at the center of everything the Kings did offensively on Tuesday, scoring 24 points in an effective 8 of 15 shot from the field and providing nine assists for the team. If you can believe it, Harrison Barnes had eight assists, which is quite a feat for him.
Fox has had nice stats before, but that looks different due to the way he took office in the fourth quarter. The stakes were as great, or as high as they could be for an early season match, and he succeeded. This is what you want from your franchise.
Therese Halliburton was equally a composer on Tuesday night, which quickly made people wonder how he fell 12th in 2020. Draft NBA. It also makes people wonder if he is actually a beginner or not.
At 24:54, Halliburton gave the Kings a little bit of everything, scoring 13 points, six assists, three rebounds and three super-balls. For someone who does not have the luxury of playing Summer NBA, He understands the speed of the NBA game like everyone else. He’s good, and if he keeps up with it, he gets to be considered Rookie of the Year sooner rather than later.
In total, seven Kings finished the night with double characters, including Ritchon Holmes and Marvin Bagley III, who finished a total of 38 points Tuesday night. This is no small feat against the likes of Nikola Gokic and Paul Millsap. They were amazing, and only gonna get better – especially Bagley.
Kings still have some areas to clean up. After all, they almost let this game slip by by letting the Nuggets go on a round 17-0 in the quarter. But they are proving talented enough to keep matches close, and teeny enough to win. These things make for fun, young team.
