Don’t look now, but the Sacramento Kings are actually playing some quality basketball…and against quality opponents. Whether it’s the after effects of DMC’s suspension, a few injuries to clear up the logjam at some positions or just a hot streak, the Kings are getting great efforts from several players. Against the Celtics, the starters ruled the day. A dedication to ball movement coupled with terrific perimeter shooting was exactly what was needed to top the Celtics. A torrid second half gave the Kings a 118-96 victory and sent them into their road trip with a two-game winning streak.
