The King of Sacramento grows before our eyes. On Tuesday night, the Kings defeated the Denver Nuggets 125-115, thanks in large part to their escape from the promising backcourt combination of De’Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton.
What was disappointing in Sunday’s game against the Phoenix Suns was that Fox took center stage in the Kings’ offense on Tuesday, averaging 8 points from 15 goals per game and scoring 24 points and setting the team’s highest 9 assists. If you can believe it, Harrison Barnes has 8 assists, which is a career high for him.
Fox had good statistics before, but it felt a little different due to the way he took over in the fourth quarter. His stakes were high at the beginning of the season, even the highest. That̵
Tyrese Haliburton had the same candidate on Tuesday night, and he quickly made people question how he fell to 12th in the 2020 draft. He also makes people wonder if he is really a rookie.
At 24:54, Halliburton did everything for the Kings, scoring 13 points, 6 assists, 3 rebounds and 3 steals. For anyone who has never played in the NBA Summer League, he and anyone know the speed of NBA games. He is very good. If he continues to persevere, he will win the “Rookie of the Year” award as soon as possible.
A total of seven Kings ended the night in double figures, including Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley III, who combined for 38 points on Tuesday night. For people like Nikola Jokic and Paul Millsap, this is no small feat. They are great and they will only get better-especially Bagley.
The king still has some places to clean up. After all, they almost kept the game away by letting the Nuggets score 17-0 this quarter. But they proved that they have enough talent to keep the game over and win the game hastily. These things have created a young and interesting team.
