Another Game, Another Loss
Sometimes I wonder why I continue to follow the Kings. I wonder why I write about a losing team. I wonder why loss after loss I'm still a fan. And then I remember-I love my Kings. I remember the glory days of winning. I remember how it feels to beat the Lakers in Arco Arena. I remember the Arco thunder. And I remember that no matter what, I will always be a fan.
Tonight marked the 28th loss of the season for the Kings who have now lost a consecutive 11 games on the road. I'll give the Kings a little credit though as they played Boston, the 2nd best team on the East and the 3rd best team in the NBA all without their leader Tyreke Evans who is still out with an injury. The Kings held their own during the first half, but as the game went on they lost the momentum as the Celtics pulled farther and farther away, eventually winning 119-95.
Leading the Kings tonight was Carl Landry who put in 17 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Beno Udrih added another 16 points, 1 rebound and 5 assists. Both Landry and Beno have played remarkably well during these back-to-back games, but the rest of the team has been in a serious rut. Once again DeMarcus Cousins struggled going 3-9 from the field, but no one had a worse game than Francisco Garcia who went 3-9 from the floor and 1-5 in 3-point attempts. With the uncertainty of when Tyreke Evans will return to the line-up, it's safe to say the Kings need a miracle.
On Thursday the Kings will take on the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden and continue their road trip, but hopefully discontinue their losing streak.
