New Orleans
Sacramento

[SACRAMENTO] — The Sacramento Kings played host to the New Orleans Pelicans last night and the Kings did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 105-99 victory. The win bumps Sacramento's record up to 23-32 on the season, while the loss drags New Orleans's down to 21-34. Though a win's a win and Kings fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

An impressive performance from DeMarcus Cousins led all players in the contest and his 28 points, 14 rebounds, 7 assists, 1 blocks and 2 steals in 36 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Unfortunately for Cousins, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Kings. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get New Orleans back in the win column before too long.

Also pegged for the loss was Jrue Holiday, but one might be reluctant to blame him directly either. Holiday's 16 points, 6 rebounds and 11 assists were appreciated but ultimately for nought.

Sacramento's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Pelicans, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Kings will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Kings will be a date with the while the visiting Pelicans will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
