What. A. Finish.

After a putrid first half of basketball that saw the Sacramento Kings score just 38 points, the Kings pulled off an amazing second half comeback to defeat the Oklahoma City Thunder 94-93. Down 2 with roughly 30 seconds remaining, Buddy Hield dribbled out of trouble and double teams (yes you read that correctly) to find Bogdan Bogdanovic for an open 3. Bogi drilled it, leaving about 14 seconds on the clock. The Thunder put the ball in Chris Paul’s hands, but Richaun Holmes played stellar defense and Paul missed the would-be game-winner as time expired.

This game also marked the return of Marvin Bagley III. Bagley finished with 11 points, six rebounds and a block in 23 minutes of action. He definitely had some rust, but also had a few awesome plays to remind us why we’ve been so eager for his return.

The Kings were led in scoring by Buddy, who finished with 23 points, six rebounds, and six assists. Dennis Schroder led the Thunder with 17 points.

Oh, this win also puts the Kings into the top 8 in the Western Conference. Let’s dance!
