Sacramento moves on Orlando to settle in playoffs

Raja is serious. With the season halfway through, the California capitals are settling into playoff positions to watch a goal they haven’t reached for 16 years come closer: post-season play.

Last night, receiving Orlando, he made a new move by showing authority. Not only did he win, but he did so by dominating from start to finish. They quickly reached a 10-point advantage, having already won by 20 going into the break, and were up 30 points in the second half. It was more than a comfortable win for a team that Mike Brown has definitely turned around.

“We have to play defense if we want to get to where we want to be. That path starts with protecting the paint and turning the game over to shooters. I was impressed by what our guys did tonight to protect the paint.” Excited,” says head coach from Sacramento.

The team did a great collective job, but within it came the work of Harrison Barnes, who was his team’s top scorer with 30 points with 6 of 7 triples. Despite his individual brilliance, the forward is clear that winning was the most important thing.

“I think we were good tonight offensively, but really the whole season we believed in what we could do. The most important thing was going out with a win here tonight”, Barnes analysed, Joe was accompanied by six other players scoring in double digits, including Domantas Sabonis, who approached a triple-double with 12 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists.

“They Kicked Our Butts”

Jamal Mosley doesn’t mince words. The Orlando head coach was clear that he had no chance against the Kings and found himself outmatched in every aspect of the game. This is how he defines what he lives for. “You have to give them credit, they went out there and kicked our butts,” he says.

As far as individual performance is concerned, Paolo Banchero, the No. 1 pick in the last draft, had 17 points and 8 rebounds, while Franz Wagner and Wendell Carter Jr. each finished with 16 points.
