Denver picked up a seven-point win against the Knicks on Tuesday to extend its lead in the Northwest Division to 1.5 (two games in the loss column) over Oklahoma City.
Nikola Jokic posted his second consecutive Game Score of 24+. He’s averaging twenty-two points, twelve assists and eleven rebounds in his last two.
Paul Millsap scored sixteen in his second game since returning from a broken toe. He’s coming off the bench, along with Garry Harris, who is also newly back from a hip problem. Harris only shot 1-for-5 from the field but finished with six points and a +7.
The next guy back will be Will Barton, who has also missed the longest time. He was Denver’s super sub before Harris and Millsap were part of the bench unit. Something will change when Barton does come back but Mike Malone has gotten such good play from his role players that, in the meantime, he isn’t going to rush anybody into the starting five quite yet.
Sacramento had lost two of three prior to Tuesday’s home loss to Portland. It felt like a game the Kings really wanted, especially after losing to the LeBron-less Lakers the other night.
But a late lead got away. The Kings led by nine with under four minutes to go and by six with two to play. They didn’t score in the final two minutes, though, and Damian Lillard hit two shots from close-range in the final forty-five seconds to send the game into overtime.
Buddy Hield was the high man with twenty-seven but the Kings shot just a dozen free-throws on their home court, compared to the Trail Blazers’ thirty.
Some Kings fans will panic. If their team loses this one, which the suggest, it will be back at .500. But the Kings weren’t going to sneak into the playoffs without facing any adversity this season. They have to weather the storm and prove they are worthy of playoff contention for the first time in a long time.
