Found February 04, 2014 on Holdout Sports:
Sacramento Kings backup forward Derrick Williams stole a pass and was in position to score a wide-open basket with 3:15 left in the fourth quarter and a 28-point lead over Chicago. However, Williams tried to get a bit too fancy by tossing himself an alley-oop pass off the backboard. Sadly, it didn't go as planned. The good news is that Williams probably earned himself a spot on a SportsCenter highlight reel. The bad news is that Williams is likely to show up on the Not Top 10 List. Something tells us that next time Williams will just shoot the layup.H/T Sports Grid. This post appeared first on Holdout Sports. Follow us on Twitter @HoldoutSports.

Kings Thought Rudy Gay Would Return To Form Playing With Strong Low Post Scorers

Mike Malone thought that Rudy Gay would return to his Memphis Grizzlies' form with the Sacramento Kings when playing with strong low-post players as he did with Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. “You look at Toronto’s roster, and no disrespect to (big men) Jonas (Valanciunas) or Amir (Johnson), but they don’t have a true low-post presence,” Malone said. “We just thought...

Video: D.J. Augustin Tried To Spike The Ball Off Of Jimmer Fredette’s Face, Jimmer Answers With Three In His Eye

Tonight, the Sacramento Kings demolished the Chicago Bulls 99-70 at Sleep Train Arena, and Bulls PG D.J. Augustin was not a happy camper.

At one point late in the game, Augustin had a pass intended for him picked off by Jimmer Fredette, who was matched...

Bulls' Mike Dunleavy isn't one to "clown" around

The players' history dates to last season, when Cousins got ejected for elbowing Dunleavy, then...

Raptors, Kings both have improved since Rudy Gay trade

Kings rout Bulls to end seven-game losing streak

It would be easy to say the Kings’ defense benefited from playing the Chicago Bulls, who struggle to score most nights. But more than once this season, Sacramento has shown it can make even the most pedestrian offenses look like scoring machines. Monday night at Sleep Train Arena, the Kings didn’t allow the Bulls to put up season highs. It was the Kings, not the usually stout...

Raptors-Kings Preview

The Toronto Raptors' decision to trade Rudy Gay was seen largely as a move aimed at financial flexibility. Since the deal, though, they've been one of the better teams in the NBA.
