Kings destroy Cavs by 44 pointsPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Sacramento Bee reporting on the Kings, who unleashed a dominating win yesterday:
Last Sunday, the Kings held a players-only meeting. It’s the kind of meeting that’s praised if wins follow but mocked if losses continue.
Since the gathering, the Kings have won a season-best three consecutive games. So, of course, it was just what the team needed.
Sunday at Sleep Train Arena, the Kings matched the third most lopsided win in franchise history, routing the Cleveland Cavaliers 124-80.
The victory margin equaled a 44-point win over Denver on Dec. 12, 1992, and trailed only a 56-point win over Philadelphia on Jan. 2, 1993 and a 58-point victory over Dallas on Dec. 29, 1992.
The Kings led by 46 points, their biggest advantage of the season, and tallied season highs in points, 3-pointers (15) and blocked shots (eight).
