SACRAMENTO – The Sacramento Kings received strong contributions from three starters and a timely boost from reserve guard Jimmer Fredette Wednesday night . That was just enough to hold on for a 95-94 victory over the Washington Wizards before an announced crowd of 11,611 at Sleep Train Arena.

Numbers are deceptive. Sometimes numbers are not deceptive. Tonight, there are some really big deal type numbers, and well there are also some numbers that are probably not as big of a deal as they look like.
First, look at minutes. 83: The combined amount of minutes DeMarcus Cousins and Tyreke Evans were on the floor tonight (Cousins had 43 of those).
62: Points in the paint...
For the second year in a row...
