Despite 26 points and 13 rebounds from DeMarcus Cousins, the Sacramento Kings fell to the Detroit Pistons 97-90 on Friday. The loss drops the Kings to 2-6 on the season and 2-4 at home.
More importantly, Sacramentans shattered the Guinness World Record for arena noise. They actually shattered it three times. The final mark was set at 126 decibels.
Turnovers were a huge problem for the Kings: they had seven in the first quarter and 17 overall. Greivis Vasquez had eight. Josh Smith was a holy terror (21 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, five steals and four blocks) and Andre Drummond went bonkers in the second half (15 points, 18 rebounds overall).
Patrick Patterson and Travis Outlaw knocked knees in the second quarter and missed the rest of the game. Jason Thompson had a really rough night.
