After loss to Nuggets, it’s clear Kings need to fix problem on the glass

It’s a term the Sacramento Kings coaching staff has used since the beginning of training camp to describe the bigs on the roster. On Monday night at Golden 1 Center, the team’s lack of strength inside was on full display as the Denver Nuggets crushed them on the glass. “I think we’re 29th in the league for rebounding, so that’s a little bit of our makeup of how our team is made,” Dave Joerger said following the Kings’ 114-98 loss.

Gameday: Kings try to snap skid on first night of Blazers back-to-back

Coming off one of the worst performances in franchise history, the Kings return to Golden 1 Center to host the Portland Trail Blazers in the first game of a home-and-home on back-to-back nights. Sacramento’s 46-point loss to the lowly Hawks set a new low point in the season. The Kings lacked effort and intensity against an Atlanta team that came into the game at just 2-11 on the season.

Sacramento (3-11) lost all three games by a combined 91 points on an East Coast trip to New York, Washington and Atlanta.

John Wall is playing through more pain than you may have realized

You wouldn’t have known it by John Wall’s performance on Monday night against the Sacramento Kings when he dropped a game-high 21 points on 8-of-9 shooting with nine assists, but the Wizards’ star point guard was playing through a good deal of pain. Wall is now 22-for-42 from three against them in 14 career games.

Wizards take care of Kings for third straight win behind John Wall’s three-point frenzy

The Washington Wizards beat the Sacramento Kings 110-92 on Monday night at Capital One Arena. Wizards are on a roll: It was just under a week ago that Marcin Gortat boldly proclaimed the Wizards’ situation as a “s***hole” out of frustration following another loss to a team they know they are better than.

De’Aaron Fox made a 19-foot jumper with 13.4 seconds remaining to lift the Sacramento Kings over Philadelphia 109-108 on Thursday night, ending a five-game winning streak for the 76ers that marked their longest in six years.
