Kings Dominate Bucks in Resounding Victory: A Turning Point for Sacramento

The Kings are an intriguing team. At times Mike Brown’s boys seem a couple of steps below the best teams in the NBA, but without warning there are nights when it seems to you that they have weapons to go against anyone; and yes, the last one was one of those.

Hosting the Bucks, a team whose only goal is the ring, Sacramento brought out its best game thanks to De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis to not only defeat the Wisconsin team, but end up beating them 129-94 that can serve as a turning point, since the Californians are one of the teams fully involved in the fight for direct access to the playoffs in the Western Conference.

Returning to the game, Sacramento simply swept. In the second quarter they built a lead of 20 points and from that moment on they surrounded them without any surprise. Milwaukee did not even tickle while their rival was partying at their expense, and they ended up crushing them with a 34-16 run in the last quarter. De’Aaron Fox, author of 29 points, believes they had one of the best defensive performances of the course.

«I think we did a great job on defense and I think that boosted our attack. Obviously we scored 130 points, but even if we don’t play as well offensively, if we have a below-average game, scoring maybe 110, we’ll still win this game by 15… I think this was one of the most complete games we’ve played this year. year,” he says.

The truth is that the Kings dominated all facets of the game. Shooting percentages, rebounds, assists, steals… It was an absolute dominance that left the Bucks who seem to live on a continuous roller coaster very shaken.

Sabonis’ record

If there is something in Sacramento that is running like clockwork, it is Domantas Sabonis. The interior player finished last night with 22 points and 11 rebounds to establish a new record in the history of the Kings with what was his 47th consecutive double-double in the current season. With such a mark he leaves behind the 46 that Jerry Lucas signed in the distant 1967-68 campaign.

A deserved defeat

That’s Doc Rivers’ opinion. The coach of the Bucks, who close the tour of California with a record of 1-3, does not warm to the defeat and sings the MEA culpa. «We deserved it tonight. It’s my fault. I didn’t prepare them mentally like I should have. We talked after shootaround that if we weren’t very focused it would be a long day. So it was. It is up to us to change it », he explains.
