Miami Heat vs. Sacramento Kings: Live Score, Results and Game Highlights
Coming off back-to-back losses, the Miami Heat desperately need a win. It's a good thing they're going up against the 13-23 Sacramento Kings.
We're under way in Sacramento. Stay current with live updates throughout the game after the break.
There's just one way to describe the Heat's 128-99 beat down of the Kings.
Well that one was ugly for the Sacramento Kings.
Led by Mario Chalmers' 34 points on 10-of-13 shooting from beyond the arc, the Heat dominated the Kings from the tip.
Yes, I said led by Chalmers.
LeBron did his own thing 20 points, seven assists, five rebounds, five steals and two blocks, and Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade combined for 27 points on the night.
The Kings were never in it against the Heat. They were almost out-rebounded, which is absolutely shocking, considering the Heat's rebounding woes.
Isaiah Thomas put up 34 points and five assists for the Kings, but that couldn't make up for their overall lackadaisical effort.
The Heat will be looking to carry the momentum from this one into the final stretch of their road trip that ends on Jan. 17th against the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Kings on the other hand will be looking to forget about this ugly loss sooner rather than later.
When the commentator says: "we're seeing a lot from Thomas Robinson in these last few minutes", don't believe him because in reality he's playing against a bunch of scrubs.
It only proves he's good at out-playing mediocre players.
Heat 128, Kings 95—26.5 remaining in the 4th quarter
Why would Spoelstra take Chalmers out?
I think coaches should get fined when they take players out when they're chasing individual accolades. I mean the NBA is full of one-on-one players right?
Heat 126, Kings 93—1:45 remaining in the 4th quarter
LeBron and Wade on the bench are like: "so where is this Chalmers every other day?"
Heat 124, Kings 91, Chalmers 34—2:52 remaining in the 4th quarter
Jarvis Varnado just grabbed a rebound and lost it out of bounds. That's not what the Heat need from him, they already have 5 bench players that can do that.
Heat 121, Kings 89—3:38 remaining in the 4th quarter
Mario Chalmers drained a 40-footer to give himself 31 on the night. Please just let him keep shooting, I'm thinking he could get 40-plus.
Heat 119, Kings 87—4:22 remaining in the 4th quarter
Spo hears, and he responds by giving the Heat fans what they want.
Jarvis Varnado is in the game.
Heat 116, Kings 96—4:56 remaining in the 4th quarter
If we were in South Beach all we'd be hearing would be #Jarvis! #Jarvis #Jarvis! chants
Ok Spo, enough, we want Jarvis!— Miami Heat All Day (@MHeatAllDay) January 13, 2013
Is it just me, or does James Johnson really look like Denzel Washington.
Heat 113, Kings 82—7:10 remaining in the 4th quarter
Rashard Lewis just joined the three-party. As if there wasn't enough bad news for the Kings ...
Heat 108, Kings 76—9:49 remaining in the 4th quarter
LeBron and Wade are on the bench looking like they've done all their work for the night.
That's a shame because with 3 more assists, 5 rebounds and 5 steals, LeBron could've had a quadruple-double. I think the Heat need to hire me to remind LeBron of the records he could set every game.
Heat 105, Kings 74—10:30 remaining in the 4th quarter
More impressive stat line?
(A) LeBron James — 20 points, 7 assists, 5 rebounds, 5 steals, 2 blocks, 70 percent shooting
(B) Mario Chalmers — 28 points, 72.7 3PFG%
(C) Isaiah Thomas — 31 points, 71.4 3PFG%
Heat 103, Kings 72—start of the 4th quarter
Mario Chalmers (8-11 from 3-point land) and Isaiah Thomas (4-6) are putting on an absolute show right now.
Chalmers with 28, Thomas with 28 ...
Heat 101, Kings 69—31.1 remaining in the 3rd quarter
I mean we all knew the Heat would probably win this one, but let's be honest ... a 38-point lead in the 3rd quarter?
Yea I don't think many thought that would happen.
Heat 98, Kings 60—1:49 remaining in the 3rd quarter
Isaiah Thomas with 19 points on the night, 10 in the 3rd quarter is doing all he can to keep the Kings in this.
Well, he's not really keeping them in it, but it's not really his fault either. Either way, it's time for some Thomas highlights.
Heat 89, Kings 58—4:00 remaining in the 3rd quarter
This would've been a 24-second shot clock violation by the way. #RememberWhereYouCameFrom
Good news Kings' fans, Mario Chalmers is indeed human, he missed a three-pointer.
I was starting to think that he was a robot.
Heat 85, Kings 55—5:54 remaining in the 3rd quarter
That mid-air 360 pass by LeBron James looked a lot cooler because Mario Chalmers knocked down the three-ball (His 6th, yes 6th of the night)
Heat 77, Kings 51, Chalmers 22—8:02 remaining in the 3rd quarter
It's amazing that the Heat have lost 5 of their last 8 (23-11) and are still atop the Eastern Conference.
In the West it would be a completely different story.
Heat 72, Kings 50—8:57 remaining in the 3rd quarter
