Kings give up 78 points in first half, drop back-to-back games in Orlando

The Sacramento Kings should probably start packing. Follow a crushing loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Friday, the Kings torpedoed any chance they had of ending their 13-year playoff drought with a shameful effort against the Orlando Magic on Sunday, in which they lost 132-116.

On paper, this wasn’t supposed to be an easy matchup for the Kings. The Magic’s best player, Nikola Vucevic, is a skilled seven-footer that can score in a variety of ways, and the Kings had no one to counter that skillet with Alex Len sidelined.
