Charlotte
Sacramento

[SACRAMENTO] — The Sacramento Kings played host to the Charlotte Hornets last night but don't think that the home cooking gave them any sort of advantage. The 85-99 loss has the Kings and their fans cringing as they brace for their next opportunity to redeem themselves. The loss bumps Sacramento's record down to 25-34 on the season, while the victory gives Charlotte a 25-33 total on the year. Disappointing from the opening tip, the Kings did little to convince anyone that they deserved anything more than a big fat L in this one. Suffice it to say, they'll have plenty to talk about over the next few days.

On this night it was Frank Kaminsky leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 23 points, 13 rebounds, 3 assists, 0 blocks and 2 steals in 38 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Most importantly, the Hornets managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Kaminsky keeps producing at this rate and Charlotte keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

In addition to the contributions from Kaminsky, the Hornets also benefited from a big night out of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. With 6 points, 12 rebounds and 3 assists, Kidd-Gilchrist did an admirable job helping guide his club to a much needed road victory.

At the end of the day, the homeside was beaten down in a performance that they stood little chance of winning. If there's one thing any coach will offer a team coming off of a loss like this one it's that success hinges on a better defensive output. Not only did the Hornets take advantage of Sacramento, they managed to put forth an offensive outburst far in excess of their season average. Sacramento knows this - as would any other NBA squad in their position, so don't be surprised if the Kings end up running plenty of laps after this one.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Hornets, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the Los Angeles Clippers.
