De’Aaron Fox (knee) returned from a one-game absence to face off against a young, feisty Orlando Magic team. The Kings would start this game off extremely slow and flustered. The entire first half for Sacramento seemed to be compiled of miscommunication defensively, rushed shots and a lot of one-on-one ineffectiveness.
The Magic headed into halftime with a 65-47 lead as as a result. Then something changed. Fox (37 points, five rebounds and 3 assists) showcased why he was given the keys to the franchise as he got hot early in the third quarter and never seemed to cool off.
