The Sacramento Kings continue to go through their best moment in the NBA after defeating the Los Angeles Lakers 111-116 and staying in the fight for the first places in the Western Conference.
The Crypto.com Arena became the scene of a great display of play by Sacramento, who reached their fifth consecutive victory and displaced the New Orleans Pelicans in the table.
The team led by Mike Brown achieved victory despite not having their star Domantas Sabonis, who was the best player last week, according to the NBA.
The figure of the match was point guard De'Aaron Fox, who managed to score 31 points and provided six assists to lead the offense. Another who shone was Harrison Barnes, who scored 20 points and was in charge of breaking the tie with 50 seconds to go.
“Domantas is a key part of our offense, and Fox has taken a sensational step forward. He has brought us back to the game when we were down and he has known how to put us ahead in the final stretch. But this has been a team victory," Brown said after the match.
