The Sacramento Kings are looking at yet another rebuilding season after trading their best player of the past 5 years, DeMarcus Cousins, for younger talent. They showcased this younger talent at the end of a recent game against the Los Angeles Clippers when they were facing an 18 point deficit with 5 minutes to go. Even though they were down by a huge number of points, the Kings fought back and eventually forced Los Angeles to call a timeout after Buddy Hield scored 6 points in 8 seconds to make it a 3-point game. The Kings ended up winning the game because Willie Cauley Stein sunk one with only 1.8 seconds left. The Kings in this game were lead by long time point guard Darren Collison, who had 19 points and Buddy Hield, who had 15 points and 7 rebounds. The Clippers got a good game out of Deandre Jordan, who had 20 points and 11 rebounds. The Clippers will need to rebound in the next one to pick up momentum for the playoffs.
