Sacramento
Portland

[PORTLAND] — The Portland Trail Blazers played host to the Sacramento Kings last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 122 to 120 Blazers victory. The win bumps Portland's record up to 6-4 on the season, while the loss drags Sacramento's down to 4-7. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Trail Blazers. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

On this night it was Rudy Gay leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 29 points, 14 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 blocks and 2 steals in 42 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Unfortunately for Gay, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Trail Blazers. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Sacramento back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Trail Blazers in the victory was DeMarcus Cousins and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Gay, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Cousins posted 33 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists in the win.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Trail Blazers walking away victorious was Portland's ability to limit Sacramento's offensive output. By holding the Kings to less than they usually produce the Trail Blazers made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Blazers will be a date with the Denver Nuggets while the visiting Kings will look to bounce back in a matchup with the San Antonio Spurs.
