It most certainly looks like there’s nothing the Sacramento Kings can do to put their season back together. A play-off place is well out of their reach, and even if they were somehow closer to one, their defense is so far below par that they still couldn’t do anything good for themselves. But this game meant a bit more than just another dreadful loss for the Kings, it was Rick Adelman’s 935th win in the competition. That means he is now sharing the 10th place for most career wins with Dick Motta. Odds .
“It means a lot to me,” Adelman stated. “If you take a look at all those names up there [on the top-10 list], they are some of the best coaches.”
The game started as games usually start for the Kings. They do so good in the first quarter, but somehow they manage to lose it along the way. The first quarter was absolutely stunning. It wasn’t the prettiest quarter of the season, but it was a scorer’s delight. The teams utterly neglected their defensive responsibilities as they struggled to get one over their opponent. Sacramento barely managed to keep a tiny lead and the quarter ended 29-30.
“It was a well-deserved win, on a court that [he] built,” Kevin Martin stated. “I’m happy to be a part of this. We played hard in his honor. He’s in a very special category among coaches.” Martin is a very special player for Adelman as he has played for the coach at the Houston Rockets and at the Sacramento Kings too. Scores.
The second quarter revealed a Sacramento team we’re all used to see, fair enough on the offense, but dreadful in defense. The Kings started to break down and the Rockets took advantage of them. They quickly reduced the deficit to rubble and got the lead, a lead they would never lose again. The quarter ended 36-28, which brought the overall score to 65-58.
The third quarter was even worse for the Kings. This time they were also missing a lot and were stopped in their tracks most of the time. The Rockets dominated the quarter and managed to put a lot of space between them and their opponents. The quarter score was 30-16 and the total score was 95-74.
Armed with such an advantage, the Rockets kept their cool and were content to keep the Kings at bay. The strategy worked, and the Rockets finally won the game, 123-101. Las Vegas odds.
