Kings vs Cavs 3 Takeaways
1. Harrison Barnes Responds
No doubt Harrison had his best game yet stuffing the stat sheet with 20 points and 9 rebounds on a very efficient 6-of-8 shooting and was aggressive in his pursuit to get to the free throw line. The kings will need the veteran forward to up his level of play a bit since he is the only true wing on the team alongside Keegan.
2. 7 Kings players in double figures
Every player Mike Brown put out there last night had a significant impact on this victory. But seven guys scoring 14 points or more is not sustainable long-term in my opinion.
Even guys off the bench were crucial with Monk and Lyles stepping up big time down the stretch. The ball movement was on point, as they dished out 30 assists on 52 percent from the field and 43 percent from beyond the arc.
3. Getting to the line and knocking them down
Sacramento got to the line a season high 35 times and hit 30 of them. It’s nice to finally see some calls go the Kings way especially when attacking the paint with force. The Kings had struggled hitting their free throws consistently and weren’t getting their enough so hopefully them getting to the charity stripe will bode well late in games.
Hopefully the Kings can take this momentum from last night’s big win into the Lakers game as well.
