Kings 116, Bucks 102: It's kind of fun to just be better than another team

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Kings dominated from start to finish and got a career-high from rookie Ray Mcallum.

The Kings started off their road trip the right way, taking care of business against the Milwaukee Bucks in a game that was never really in doubt.    Sacramento broke the game open with a 36 point 2nd quarter and never looked back, winning 116 to 102.

Sacramento was led in scoring by Isaiah Thomas, who scored a game-high 25 points on 9-16 shooting to go with 5 assists.  Isaiah was ejected with two quick techs in the fourth quarter, in somewhat surprising fashion as he wasn't really doing anything, but then again, Joey Crawford.  He outdueled Brandon Knight, who scored 25 points to lead Milwaukee.

DeMarcus Cousins put up 21 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists, and Rudy Gay had 22 points of his own, but perhaps the biggest bright spot for the Kings was the continued good play from rookie Ray McCallum.  McCallum scored a career-high 15 points on an efficient 7-11 shooting and no turnovers.

Speaking of turnovers, the Kings finally did a good job of controlling that, with just 9 total for the game and 20+ assists. I'd say exactly how many assists, but the online box scores appear to be all incorrect right now, probably because they're run by the laughably bad Milwaukee Bucks scoring table which was making mistakes all game long.

Sacramento has now won two straight and faces a much tougher test on Friday against the Raptors in Toronto.
