The Sacramento Kings continued to make no sense whatsoever, beating the Portland Trail Blazers 123-119 on Tuesday. The win followed back-to-back losses to the Sixers and Bobcats at home. Basketball!

Despite the Kings leading by 18 late, the Blazers roared back behind Damian Lillard, who dropped 26 in the fourth quarter and 41 for the game.

Rudy Gay was scorching, scoring 32 on 10-16 shooting before fouling out on a ticky-tack call with four minutes left in the fourth. DeMarcus Cousins carried the team home. Cousins finished with 35. It was Boogie's seventh 30-point game of the season.

Gay played 18 games for Toronto this season, and shot 50 percent or better once. In 13 games with the Kings, including Tuesday, he has shot 50 percent or better nine times.
