The Dallas Mavericks came up on the losing end of a three point loss to the Utah Jazz last game (final score 103-100,) while the Sacramento Kings were able to earn their tenth win of the season after beating the Memphis Grizzlies last outing 96-92.
The Sacramento Kings came out of the gates looking like the better team between the two. Memphis just had no answer to stopping them through the first three quarters of play. And because of that Sacramento was able to pull away out on top.
It also helped some that the Kings had other players producing besides Demarcus Cousins. Garrett Temple dropped 17 points on the night, while shooting 3-6 from deep, and Kosta Koufos pitched in 16 points on 7-11 shooting from the field.
The play of those two really helped Sacramento pull away with the win, because the Kings usually don’t have anyone else besides Demarcus Cousins to score. But this game they got contributions from everyone, and that allowed them to earn the win.
However, now they’re going to need to do the exact same thing in order to earn themselves another W. Rudy Gay continues dealing with injuries so he’s been sidelined for the past couple of games.
That has forced other players into being more opportunistic scorers on the team, and they’ve needed that. But now they’re going to need to do it again against the lowly Mavs’.
The Dallas Mavericks came up on the losing end of a frustrating loss to the Utah Jazz last game. The Mavericks kept the game close from start to finish, but in the end they just weren’t able to get themselves timely baskets when the team needed it most.
It also didn’t help that Dallas allowed Utah to outscore them in every quarter except the fourth. But by then, the game was essentially over. Dallas had their chances but they weren’t able to close the gap.
Utah even gave them a couple of shots at the end of the game but Dallas just couldn’t capitalize on it.
So now they just have to leave all that in the past, and try closing out this game against the Sacramento Kings better. It should also help if the team get themselves out to a better start then last game.
Dallas doesn’t have the talent on its roster to just coast for the majority of the game, and expect outplay teams in only the fourth quarter. That’s just not going to work well for team.
So if they can get themselves playing at a high level through four quarters of play they’ll have a shot at pull away out on top.
