Kings Lose a Couple of Close Games

Posted by rc360 on March 10, 2011

It’s been a tough stretch of games for the Sacramento Kings after a feel good win against the Los Angeles Clippers last week. Since then, they’ve lost three straight games and five of their last six.

The last three games were winnable, too.

The Kings tied the game at 95 with three minutes left in the game, but the Portland Trail Blazers outscored the Kings by five points to win 112-107. Kings guard Marcus Thornton nailed the game-tying three to force the Utah Jazz into overtime, but the Jazz outscored the Kings 14-7 in the extra period to win 109-102.

On Monday night, the Houston Rockets’ top two scorers in Kevin Martin and Luis Scola suffered setbacks through the whole game. Trailing by only five points at halftime, the Kings trailed by as much as 30 points and were blown out by 22 points.

“You gotta guard somebody,” Kings coach Paul Westphal said after the loss to Houston. “You can’t just give up 30-point quarters every quarter and expect to win games. Our defense was not good enough – really – ever to give us a chance to hang around in the game because if you have the inevitable lulls offensively, all of a sudden it’s (a) double-digit deficit.”
