Kings shooters triumph

42, 42, 42, 42, 42. I’ll bet on 42. Mike Brown did the opening on the original His post-match press conference. This number, which was repeated many times by the head coach of “Kings” and managed to question the journalists in front of him, simply shows the number of points his team gave up in the racket against “Magic”.

If the former Warriors assistant insists and is passionate about that statistic, it’s because his team is one of the worst students in the field. Sacramento is the third-highest scoring team in the field, averaging nearly 55 points per game.

If we want to achieve our goals, we need to defend, and that starts with protecting the racket and getting balls out to shooters. I was happy with what our guys did tonight to protect the circle Mike Brown writes.

The Kings locked down their paint this way, causing the Magic to play against nature and push them out of the circle. With 44 shots (14/44) from behind the arc, averaging just 31 on the season, Paolo Banchero and his team have never tried their luck from long range.

The Kings, on the other hand, scored four more points off the opposition racket, while using the prize-winning shot as a penalty weapon. With more efficiency than Magic. Thanks to an infectious willingness to share the skin, the Kings tied a season high with 39 assists, contributing to a team-high 23 game-winning field goal conversions (23/46).

Mike Brown wasn’t surprised

It’s a new franchise record, tied by Matthew Dellavedova’s award-winning last inning. The previous brand was launched in November 2021 with 22 units. A small feat when you know the De’Aaron Fox – Malik Monk duo finished 1/10th of the way. But Harrison Barnes (6/7), Keegan Murray (5/6) or Kevin Huerter (4/8) all compensated.

I’ve said it before, we have a lot of shooters on this team. Malik took great shots, two out of four should have fallen, so it could have been higher. The way we stretched the court, the way we shared the ball… I don’t want to sound arrogant or anything, but I’m not surprised by the shooters we have. Any time you can get a record, especially in this field, it’s a good thing “Judge Mike Brown.

Harrison Barnes, the evening’s most effective shooter with 30 points on 11/13 shooting, remembers that his team, which was the 15th most efficient in the league (36%) before this matchup, cannot rest on this weapon every night. ” It’s great to see the ball go in, but overall, we won’t live and die with it. Well, we did that tonight, but we can’t expect it to be like that the rest of the week and get 25 or even 30 points a game. rightly warns the veteran.
