After losing their season opener 105-100 to Houston, the Kings fought back to capture their first win of the season as they downed the Dallas Mavericks 93-88 victory on Friday night.
George Hill led the team with 21 points and 5 rebounds while Buddy Hield and Zach Randolph scored 13 points apiece, and rookie point guard De’Aaron Fox added nine points and 10 assists against the Mavericks.
The Kings has entered the season with eleven players being either rookies or in their second year in the league. So the experience factor is considerately low on the team.
Most of them got the chance to play against the Mavericks and are expected to get some more play time on Saturday. Veterans such as point guard Hill, small forward Vince Carter, and power forward Randolph have the responsibility to teach and build the fast and young squad into the season.
The Nuggets kicked their season with a 96-106 loss to Utah Jazz. Will Barton led the offense coming off the bench scoring 23 points and Paul Millsap added 19. Nikola Jokic did a tremendous job at pulling down the ball with 12 rebounds and also aided with 8 assists.
The team was in sync through the three quarters both offensively and defensively buts towards the end they fell apart. If they can fix this problem in Saturday’s play against the Kings then a win awaits at the bay.
