The Sacramento Kings couldn’t buy a basket for most of Sunday’s 112-99 loss to the New York Knicks.
The Kings shot just 39.8 percent as a team, made just 10-of-39 three-pointers and made no serious threats to win Sunday’s game. As a whole, Sacramento just didn’t have their best stuff as a team, and that was evident from the opening tip.
After a great comeback win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday, the Kings couldn’t continue that momentum with De’Aaron Fox sidelined with a foot injury. Sunday’s loss was the exact type of game the Kings need the reliability and consistency of Fox’s drives to the rim, especially when the team is cold from outside the paint.
