Cleveland
Sacramento

[SACRAMENTO] — The Sacramento Kings played host to the Cleveland Cavaliers last night but couldn't manage to leave much of an impact, failing to keep up with their visiting rivals and eventually succumbing in a 108-120 defeat. The loss bumps Sacramento's record down to 16-23 on the season, while the victory gives Cleveland a 29-10 total on the year. It's not overly surprising that the Kings would end up losing this one consider they did little to establish themselves as dangerous threats. Perhaps the showing can serve as an essential building block for the team in the days to come.

On this night it was DeMarcus Cousins leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 26 points, 8 rebounds, 11 assists, 0 blocks and 1 steals in 38 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Still, one can't be overly enthusastic about the numbers considering that even Cousins himself would presumably trade the solid figures for a different result on the scoreboard. Needless to say, Sacramento will take any win they can get their hands on considering where they find themselves in the conference but this just wasn't one of them.

Also contributing for the slain Kings was Rudy Gay. Gay's 23 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists did the team well, but not so well as to change the outcome. Perhaps they'll get more support from the rest of their unit in games to come.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the Kings can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though Sacramento wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Cavaliers, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the Golden State Warriors.
