Shorthand Sacramento Kings Fell into Memphis Grizzlies Friday night, 124-105. It was announced earlier in the day that six players and a few coach staff would not be able to play in the match due to the league’s health and safety protocol, so it was “all hands-on-deck” from the roster to the coach staff. did.
Deputy head coach Doug Christie announced that Tyrese Haliburton and Chimezie Metu could play in the Kings 90 minutes before the chip-off, reducing the number of active players from a minimum of eight to ten in the league. I increased it. Sacramento has rolled out five starting pitchers from Harrison, Metu, Buddy Hield, Harrison Barnes and Tristan Thompson.
Tonight all the players stepped onto the court and the first half looked really promising from the core they were able to play. Hulliverton and Burns steered the attack with significant defensive contributions from Metu and Maurice Harkless.
Kings came out with tremendous momentum and started the game with high energy intensity, leading as many as six in the first frame. The 14-2 run in the second quarter, led by Hield, pushed the team up by 15 points.
Memphis counterattacked, took advantage of Sacramento’s mistakes, flipped the script, and was able to enter the locker room with a 58-56 lead, resulting in eight turnovers in the last few minutes of the second quarter. did.
When I opened the third frame, I couldn’t really find any unity or momentum. As G League support was devoted to rotation, the number dropped by 23 in the second half.
Sacramento’s two-way player and rookie Neemias Queta checked into the contest shortly before the end of the second half and became the first Portuguese-born player to record minutes at the NBA.
Frankly, this was all the kings could have expected in such an unfortunate situation. Both Hulliverton and Metu recorded double-doubles, and the opportunity given tonight was expected to include developing players such as Keta, Jamius Ramsey, and Robert Woodard II. Sacramento has a day to reorganize before the Sunday contest-where they can hopefully add a sense of normality to their roster.
