The Sacramento Kings met the Boston Celtics at the Golden 1 Center Sunday afternoon for competitive game of basketball. Both teams entered the contest shorthanded, with the Celtics missing Kyrie Irving and Marcus Morris, among others. The Kings played without Zach Randoph and Garrett Temple. The Kings jumped out to an early lead, but fell apart in the third quarter. The Celtics extended the lead and put the game away in the fourth, winning by a final score of 105-93.
Some will tell you this was simply a playoff team beating a lottery team but they are wrong. This was a stealth tank unlike any you’ve ever seen. How else donyou explain just 25 minutes for Buddy Hield in a game where he had 14 points in his first 11 minutes? How else do you explain over 32 minutes apiece for Bogdan Bogdanovic and Willie Cauley-Stein despite them going a combined 6-24 from the field? How else do you explain playing Jack Cooley zero minutes?
This was a tank, don’t let anyone fool you into thinking otherwise. To think otherwise means you think our players and coach arent very good.
Onto more important matters, the Kings and Celtics partnered to make a PSA regarding police accountability and the death of Stephon Clark.
The Kings also wore warmup shirts honoring Clark.
