Kings Dominate Lakers 113-102


The Sacramento Kings have one more thing to be thankful for on Thanksgiving. They pummeled the Los Angeles Lakers 113-102 Wednesday night.

Seven minutes into the first quarter Sacramento took a 12-10 lead off of a Zach Randolph layup and never looked back. They led by as many 20 points and had two 30+ quarters.

Despite the media hype surrounding the first professional match-up between De’Aaron Fox and Lonzo Ball, it was the Kings’ big men that took center stage. Willie Cauley-Stein exploded in the second half for 26 points and six rebounds on the game and Randolph added 22 points and dished seven assists.

Cauley-Stein was particularly exciting as he dunked on pretty much every Laker jersey in the building. He scored on four alley-oop passes from Bogdan Bogdanovic. Cauley-Stein has been playing much better coming off the bench and is averaging 17 points and eight rebounds since making that switch.

Sacramento found most of its success coming off the bench. The Kings outscored Los Angeles 67-38 on bench points. This team seems to go as their bench goes and if they get a regular effort like this from the second unit they will be a tough out against most teams in the league.


Sacramento had a season high 26 assists and with 55% had its best shooting night. The Kings also had six players in double-figures.

Fox had 13 points and Frank Mason III added 11 more off the bench. The Kings improve to 5-13 and will stay in Sacramento to face off against the 6-11 Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday.
