Denver
Sacramento

[SACRAMENTO] — The Sacramento Kings played host to the Denver Nuggets last night and the homeside took care of business. A 116-100 win has the Kings and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Sacramento's record up to 25-33 on the season, while the loss drags Denver's down to 25-32. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Kings. 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.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Darren Collison's 15 points, 4 rebounds, 10 assists, 1 blocks and 2 steals in 32 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Unfortunately for Collison, 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 Denver back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Kings in the victory was Willie Cauley-Stein and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Collison, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Cauley-Stein posted 29 points, 10 rebounds and 0 assists in the win.

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

Up next for the reeling Kings will be a date with the Charlotte Hornets while the visiting Nuggets will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Brooklyn Nets.
