Kings can’t match Nuggets’ energy

Posted by rc360 on April 2, 2011

With their last loss at the hand of the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday, the Sacramento Kings looked to get revenge as they hosted the team. They didn’t have to battle Denver’s thin air but they still had to play a team who had won 13 of it’s last 17 games since trading Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks.

After coming off the Kings’ bench for four games since returning from injury, Tyreke Evans returned to the starting line-up, pairing up with Marcus Thornton and replacing Beno Udrih in the backcourt. Both players combined for 49 points in the previous game. Beno Udrih came off the bench.

The Kings played well in the first quarter, shooting 52.4 percent from the field and led by as much as 10 points. They held a 51-48 lead after the first half but the second half was a different story.

Denver came out with a renewed energy on offense and defense, starting the second half with a 12-4 run. Sacramento had no answer for the Nuggets and trailed by as much as 17 points. The Kings went on to lose 99-90.
