For much of the game, it looked like the Sacramento Kings just weren’t going to get over the hump. The Wizards carried a slim advantage through much of the game, and every time the Kings closed within a few points, Washington buried a couple long balls to lengthen the lead. But thanks to the some big time clutch plays and a tightening of the defense, the Kings surged past the Wizards late. After a Tyreke Evans free throw put the Kings up by one, Sacramento provided one final sequence of strong defense to hang on for the 95-94 win, as two Washington attempts in the final 10 seconds fell short.
