Kings' Bench Depth Helps Them End Skid in Win over Blazers
It was an all-hands-on-deck game for the Kings, but they managed to pull out a win thanks to contributions from some unlikely heroes. In their second game under interim coach Alvin Gentry, the Kings held on to beat the Portland Trail Blazers 125-121 Wednesday night at Golden 1 Center. With Harrison Barnes exiting the game early with a foot injury, and star De'Aaron Fox ejected after receiving two technical fouls, the Kings were left without two of their most important players in the fourth quarter. Fortunately for Sacramento, it was center Damian Jones and former No. 2 overall pick Marvin Bagley who stepped up in the clutch, helping the Kings fend off the Blazers.
