The Sacramento Kings may have finally found the chemistry they’ve been looking for as they not only won their third straight game, but also managed to blow out the Cleveland Cavaliers by 44 points!  Kings’ coach Mike Malone put his starters on the bench early in this game, so despite the fact that the Kings scored 124 points, there were no particularly spectacular stat lines, though DeMarcus Cousins did manage to pull off a double-double in less than thirty minutes, while Isaiah Thomas scored an evening-high 26 points.  The Minnesota Timberwolves continue their struggle to stay above .500 as they fell to the San Antonio Spurs.  The win gave the Spurs a one-game lead for the best record in the West and are only a half a game behind the Pacers for the league’s best record.   And the Memphis Grizzlies managed to pull off a win against the Atlanta Hawks.  Paul Millsap and Mike Conley tied for a game-high 21 points.

There’s not much to choose from with only three games, but my pick for Line of the Night goes to Mike Conley.  He was the only player last night to post a 20/10 game (21 points and an evening-high 13 assists) and also managed to get 4 steals which was tops amongst all players last night as well.
