Dallas
Sacramento

[SACRAMENTO] — The Sacramento Kings played host to the Dallas Mavericks last night and the Kings did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 98-87 victory. The win bumps Sacramento's record up to 31-47 on the season, while the loss drags Dallas's down to 32-45. 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.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Willie Cauley-Stein's 12 points, 16 rebounds, 1 assists, 0 blocks and 3 steals in 34 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Ask anybody, however - Cauley-Stein included - and the most important part is that the Kings walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Nerlens Noel did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Mavericks. Noel's 9 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

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 Mavericks, 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 Los Angeles Lakers while the visiting Mavericks will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers.
