Sacramento Kings Beat Bucks, Move To 2-1 On Road Trip

Marcus Thornton continues to scream for the Sacramento Kings. The second-year guard led the team with 27 points as the Kings beat the Milwaukee Bucks 97-90 at the Bradley Center. Thornton shout 9-19 from the floor, and drew eight free throws. Beno Udrih broke out with 25 points of his own to go with six assists, and Samuel Dalembert racked up another double-double with 11 points and 12 rebounds in 41 minutes.

DeMarcus Cousins played just 28 minutes despite avoiding foul trouble; he finished with 13 points on 6-11 shooting, nine rebounds (three offensive), three assists and, unfortunately, four more turnovers. Tyreke Evans dressed but didn't play; Jason Jones has reported Evans plans to play Friday against the Pacers.

The Kings are 2-1 on the current five-game road trip, bookending that 40-point embarrassment with wins over the Wolves and Bucks. Sacramento now has 18 wins on the season, which means f--k that 17-win season sideways, OK? Given how dire the relocation situation looks, I, for one, will certainly value late-season wins and warm feelings heading into Here We Stay Night 2 on April 11 versus lottery positioning.

Carlos Delfino was unstoppable, scoring 30 and hitting 5-9 from long-range. Francisco Garcia had a very rough night on both ends, and Omri Casspi was a DNP-CD. That left Donte Greene on the task, and he did well, especially in defending John Salmons.
