Los Angeles
Sacramento

[SACRAMENTO] — The Sacramento Kings played host to the Los Angeles Lakers last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 97 to 96 Kings victory. The win bumps Sacramento's record up to 24-32 on the season, while the loss drags Los Angeles's down to 19-38. 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.

Team results aside, a monster night from DeMarcus Cousins is all that fans will be talking about as they process the contest. Cousins pumped out a stat line of 40 points, 12 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 blocks and 2 steals in 36 minutes on the night, quantifiable proof of his place among the top tier of NBA players. 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 Los Angeles back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Kings in the victory was Lou Williams and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Cousins, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Williams posted 29 points, 1 rebounds and 5 assists in the win.

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 Lakers, 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 Golden State Warriors while the visiting Lakers will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Phoenix Suns.
