As bad as the Sacramento Kings and Denver Nuggets have been this season, both teams actually still have a chance at making a push toward the bottom of the Western Conference.
The two teams will meet in Denver on Tuesday, with the Kings having won 2 straight and the Nuggets dropping 2 in a row.
The Kings have endured many ups and downs this season.
Sacramento looked like one of the best teams for a string of games in the month of January, DeMarcus Cousins looked like the best NBA player in that process as well. Following that though, there were many downsides. The Kings went on a massive losing streak and George Karl was rumored to get fired, then kept, then fired up again, before finally deciding to keep him.
The Kings for the better end of this head to head matchup on Friday night, in Sacramento, as they held off the Nuggets 4th quarter run to secure a 110-106 win.
DeMarcus Cousins got into a groove and established himself in the paint and when that happens, it spells troubles for the opposition. Cousins finished with 37 points and 20 rebounds, as they simply couldn’t stop them.
Rajon Rondo nearly turned in a triple-double as he put in 24 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, and dished out 9 assists in the win.
The Nuggets really haven’t been a factor this season, but they still have a chance at making one more run at the playoffs.
Currently, Denver sits in 12th place, but just 6.0 games off the pace. The Nuggets fell behind by 13 points at the half on Friday and nearly completed the 2nd half comeback, but couldn’t get any key stops down the stretch.
Denver continued to do what has hurt them all season long, turning the ball over. Denver committed 18 turnovers and consistently let Rondo lead the Kings out in transition.
Following the loss to the Kings, the Nuggets flopped again defensively, allowing 121 points to the Celtics. The Nuggets buried themselves in the first quarter by getting outscored 35-17.
