SACRAMENTO SURPRISES PORRTLAND
Wed, 26 Jan 2011 03:54 PM EST

The Sacramento Kings traveled to Oregon to face off against the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday. The Kings headed into this game hoping for their second win in nine games, as they had lost seven of their last eight. The Blazers were aiming to build on a five-game winning streak that had improved them to 25-21. Against the odds, it was the Kings that held the Blazers to 39.5 percent shooting and took the victory. A sharp defense led by Samuel Dalembert permitted the team to lead at the end of each quarter. In the end, the Kings won it 96-81 after regulation time for only their fourth win on the road this season. Odds.

Last season’s NBA rookie of the year led the Kings on offense with 26 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. A further four of Sacramento’s players scored in double-digits as well. Carl Landry contributed 16 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists, Beno Udrih and DeMarcus Cousins gave 14 points apiece and Omri Casspi had 12 points with 7 rebounds. While offense did their part in putting the points up, the Kings’ defense was the real key in this much-needed win. Scores.

Dalembert was perhaps the most important on D, as he was assigned the difficult task of guarding LaMarcus Aldridge. He blocked four shots in 27 minutes, and held the Western Conference player of the week to 4 of 14 from the floor and single digits for the first time in 26 games. The lead traded hands a number of times, but it was Kings who improved to 10-32 in the end. Las Vegas odds.

Coach Nate McMillan admitted that the Blazers simply lacked the spark that was so evident during their recent winning streak. He was quoted, “We played as if we could flip a switch here and that team got their confidence. We just didn’t have the sharpness tonight” Wesley Matthews [21 points, 3 assists] and Andre Miller [18 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists] helped Portland rally in the fourth for a fighting chance, but it was not enough.
