Kings outplay Lakers, win 120-107 in season sweep

In a game against the Los Angeles Lakers, the Sacramento Kings emerged victorious with a score of 120-107. Domantas Sabonis had an outstanding performance with 17 points, 19 rebounds, and 10 assists, marking his league-leading 23rd triple-double. This win added to the Kings’ recent success against the Lakers, as they have now won seven of their last eight games against them, including a four-game sweep this season. Harrison Barnes, De’Aaron Fox, and Keegan Murray all contributed significantly to the Kings’ success, with each of them scoring in double figures.

Harrison Barnes stood out with seven 3-pointers and 23 points, while De’Aaron Fox added 21 points and Keegan Murray had 19. The Lakers were led by Austin Reaves with 28 points, Anthony Davis with 22 points and 10 rebounds, and LeBron James with 18 points and 13 boards. Both teams are currently fighting for playoff positioning, with the Kings now tied with Phoenix for sixth place in the Western Conference, placing them three games ahead of the ninth-place Lakers.

Sacramento dominated the third quarter, starting with a 10-2 run that gave them a double-digit lead. This quarter proved crucial as the Kings held the Lakers to just four field goals in the frame. Although the Lakers tried to make a comeback in the fourth quarter, Sacramento remained in control, with Barnes and Malik Monk hitting consecutive 3-pointers to maintain a comfortable cushion. The Kings had a halftime lead of 60-56, with Murray leading the way with 14 points and four 3-pointers.

Unfortunately, the Kings were missing Kevin Huerter due to a right leg contusion and Trey Lyles due to a left knee sprain. Looking ahead, the Lakers will host Golden State on Saturday, while the Kings will host New York on the same day.
