Kings lose to Lakers in overtime, possibly Sacramento’s last game

Posted by rc360 on April 13, 2011

In what could be the last NBA game played in Sacramento‘s Power Balance Pavilion, the Kings saw faced the two-time defending champion Los Angeles Lakers.

The Kings and Lakers were heated Pacific Division rivals in the early 2000’s, game and since then, the rivalry, at least for the Lakers, faded.

The Lakers remained a perennial playoff team while Sacramento had not appeared in the playoffs since 2006. In front of a sellout crowd of 17,641 these two teams would take a step back in time for perhaps one last time.

A win against the Kings would ensure them the second seed in the playoffs.

The Lakers held a 91-71 with 9:44 left in regulation when the Kings made what could be one of the most memorable runs in team history.

Led by the backcourt of Tyreke Evans and Marcus Thornton the Kings and went on a 27-4 run to take the lead at 97-95 with 1:22 left in the game.
