The Kings beat the Magic in Orlando on Monday, snapping a losing streak and providing convincing evidence that they are, indeed, not the worst team in basketball.
Garrett Temple played 40 minutes off the bench and scored a career-high 34 points. Vince Carter shot 1-for-7 as a starter but added six assists and three steals.
The Magic was just plain horrible, though. It turned it over 17 times to the Kings’ 14.
The win was Sacramento’s second of the month and it will almost definitely be its last. The Kings have a tough road ahead before the end of the month. I don’t see many wins in February either. They start with the likes of Golden State.
Miami has been off since losing a tough one in Houston. Now, the Heat comes back home to some winnable games, starting with the Kings.
Tyler Johnson and Goran Dragic have been out but there’s hope they could both be back for this game. Johnson was upgraded to questionable ahead of the Houston game on Monday and Dragic was also questionable. The fact that neither played led me to believe the Heat were being cautious with a couple days off before returning to the court in Miami.
Miami played better than I could have imagined without a point guard. Neither Wayne Ellington, nor Derrick Jones Jr. is a ball-handler but James Johnson and Justise Winslow provided some nice short-term relief. That can’t be a long-term solution though.
Miami has one of the more balanced home/road splits in the league so this isn’t a huge relief to get home but it sure is nice. The Heat is playing fantastic basketball and it should have no problem against the Kings in this one.
