The Kings keep rolling and we couldn’t be happier for the people of Sacramento, who have waited more than a decade for a semi-return to prominence.

Mature DeMarcus Cousins Fouls Out & Prevents Coach From Costly Technical

Mike Malone, DeMarcus Cousins

There was less than 40 seconds remaining in regulation during last night’s exciting Suns-Kings overtime scorcher, when DeMarcus Cousins set a screen on Marcus Morris that sent him flailing.
