The Los Angeles Lakers earned just their 19th win of the season after they beat the Milwaukee Bucks in their last outing 122-114, while out in Sacramento the Kings also came away victors after they beat the New Orleans Pelicans 105-99.
The Sacramento Kings made it three wins in a row after they beat the New Orleans Pelicans in their last outing. After coming out slow to start the game, Sacramento started piling it on the Pelicans in the second half.
Sacramento outscored them 52-43 through the final two quarter of play, and that ultimately allowed them to pull away ahead. But it wasn’t just the scoring through the third and fourth that allowed them to come away out on top.
Demarcus Cousins passing played a vital role in Sacramento earning the “W”. Through the second half, New Orleans started double teaming Cousins in the post, so instead of scoring he started picking them apart with his passing.
In the closing minutes of the game, Sacramento went to him three plays in a row, and he stepped up to the call. Cousins found Tolliver, Collison and Matt Barnes for a couple of easy baskets.
Now, against Los Angeles he’s going to need to do that again. The Kings don’t have any other true scorer beside him, so Demarcus is forced into creating shots for his teammates.
That means against Los Angeles he needs to do so again, in order for the Kings to make it four wins if a row.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers just dominated the Milwaukee Bucks from start to finish this game. Milwaukee had a couple of opportunities in the third and fourth quarter, however they couldn’t capitalize on those chances.
It almost seemed like every time they brought the deficit to within 10 points, Los Angeles just had an answer to it. The Lakers did a fantastic job not allowing the opposing teams runs to dictate how they should play.
Whenever Milwaukee started to come back the Lakers just remained calm, and continued fighting to extent their lead, and that made a difference for them this game.
Usually Los Angeles has a habit of letting up leads. But this game that was different, and now it’s a positive they can take into their next matchup against Sacramento.
The Kings have came back to win their last two games, despite trailing by 20 both nights. That means Los Angeles needs to continue remaining calm even if Sacramento does go on a run of their own.
If they can do just that they’ll earn the “W”.
