The Sacramento Kings who play at Sleep Train Arena, (the irony!), want to break the indoor noise record this Friday, November 15th, against the Pistons.
It’s the only nationally televised game for the Kings this year, so that already has the fans in a buzz, as their record currently doesn’t (1-5). And on top of that, they’re playing a Pistons team, who had playoff aspirations...
The Kings will try to make the record books Friday night vs. Detroit. A judge from the Guinness World Records will be in Sacramento to measure sound levels as they try to break the record for indoor crowd noise. The game will also air on ESPN, the Kings only game on the channel this season. They will have to top 106.6 decibels, set at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, home of the...
In a matter of seconds, rookie guard Ben McLemore showed off many of the attributes the Kings need and that he adds.
In the second quarter of Saturday’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers, forward Dorrel Wright appeared on his way to the basket for an easy layup.
But McLemore tracked down Wright and swatted the ball off the backboard and was called for goaltending.
For a month, Kings coach Michael Malone talked about how Marcus Thornton might thrive like a player he watched his father, Brendan, coach in Detroit.
Vinnie Johnson was one of the most prolific bench scorers for the Pistons during the 1980s, helping Detroit win back-to-back NBA championships in 1989 and 1990. He picked up the nickname “The Microwave” for how quickly he could...
Marcus Thornton scored a season-high 24 points after losing his starting spot to rookie Ben McLemore, and the Sacramento Kings snapped a five-game losing streak by beating the Brooklyn Nets 107-86 on Wednesday night.
Greivis Vasquez had 17 points and 12 assists, and Isaiah Thomas added 19 points, six assists and six rebounds to help the Kings blowout Brooklyn. Sacramento led by...
The Kings ended their five-game losing streak by blowing out the Brooklyn Nets, 107-86.
The Kings held the Nets to 37.8 percent shooting, their best defensive effort of the season.
This was the first time Malone's been happy after a game since the season opener.
"I loved the defense," Malone said. "Tonight was the closest that we have come to playing a full...
The Kings haven't gotten off to a great start so far this season, but the same can't be said for DeMarcus Cousins. Sacramento's center has been dominant, averaging 23.5 points and 9.7 rebounds per game on 49% shooting

Something has to change for the Sacramento Kings. For all his shortcomings and brainfarts on the court, DeMarcus Cousins is a legit 25-10 threat every night, so he’s not going anywhere. First year head coach...
Marcus Thornton came off the bench and was scorching hot immediately. He scored 24 points on 10-19 shooting. He also added four three-pointers.,
There really isn't much to say about this one other than that the Kings knew there was a game tonight, and prepared for it accordingly, while the Nets did not. Losing their third game in a row overall--and fourth in a row...
DeMarcus Cousins and Greg Monroe are emerging big men who were selected two spots apart in the 2010 draft.
Their head-to-head matchups have been fairly close statistically, but Monroe's Detroit Pistons have generally gotten the better of Cousins' Sacramento Kings.
Both will be in the spotlight Friday night in Sacramento in a meeting of 2-5 teams that have struggled from...
The NBA front office will have an easy time assessing whether or not Nets' Jason Terry violated their anti-flopping rule. In a game versus the the Kings, Terry found himself defending Greivis Vasquez when he decided to put on a show for the ages when Vasquez threw an elbow which did not connect with Terry at all. But that didn't let Jason continue his flop-tastic flop...
