SACRAMENTO -- Indiana's David West scored a season-high 31 points and, combined with a solid defensive effort, helped to give the Pacers a 97-92 victory over the Sacramento Kings before an announced crowd of 12,544 at Sleep Train Arena on Friday night. As has been their custom this season, the Kings fell behind early and spent the better part of the game attempting to rally.

DeMarcus Cousins led the Kings (4-11) with 19 points and 16 rebounds. The Pacers held a 43-40 halftime lead as West ca...

- David West still beast (23, 8, 4 on 10-16 shooting). Needs to teach Tyler Hansbrough how to start hitting midrange jumpers again. Psycho T was 0-5 and didn'...
It was one of those nights for Chris Paul and the Clippers. I don’t know if the Kings ever really stood a chance. Midway through the first quarter and down 8, CP3 crossed up Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins and then put the cherry on top of the move with a dunk! Remember CP3 is a [...]
