Kings Return After Long Trip

Posted by rc360 on January 18, 2011

The Sacramento Kings’ six-game road trip, the longest on the schedule, was going to be anything but easy. After losing the first game against the Toronto Raptors, the Kings still had to face two sets of back-to-back games.

The first set was against the Washington Wizards and Boston Celtics followed by the New York Knicks and Detroit Pistons. They finished the road trip with a Martin Luther King Day matinée, hosted by the Atlanta Hawks before returning home.

After the Kings suffered a close loss up north, they were in for a roller coaster ride in the nation’s capital, playing without guard Tyreke Evans for a second-straight game. They went down big at the end of the first quarter against the Wizards, trailing 38-19.

However, the game took an interesting twist when the Kings went on a 30-10 run in the second quarter to briefly take the lead.

Washington took a 13-point lead late in the third quarter and led by eight points with less than a minute remaining, but the Kings sent the game into overtime, thanks to swingman Francisco García’s seven points in 34.6 seconds and Pooh Jeter’s game-tying lay-up.
