NBA -- Kings lose five in a row; sink to 2-8


PhilBoxing.com




NEW YORK -- In a match-up between the NBA's rich and poor, the rich just got richer and the poor got even poorer.

The Brooklyn Nets traveled to the Sleep Train Arena on Sunday night and promptly won their fifth game in a row, 99-90, at the expense of the struggling Sacramento Kings, who dropped five straight and fell to the bottom of the Paciic Division with a 2-8 record.

The Nets, meanwhile, soared to 6-2, just a full game behind the neighboring New York Knicks for the best record in the Eastern Conference. The Nets uprooted from New Jersey to Brooklyn this season, opening with the pomp and circumstance of a billion-dollar arena -- the Barclays Center. They acquired fresh and explosive talent --- particularly Joe Johnson -- to compete for an NBA title.

Sunday night against the Kings, the Nets, even when they're not at their best, showed a little bit of that potential.

Andre Blatche led Brooklyn's attack with 22 points. MarShon Brooks and Deron Williams each had 14 points with Williams throwing 10 assists into the fray. C.J. Watson and Brook Lopez combined for 26 points for the Nets, who made 36 of 75 field goals for a high 48 percent accuracy rate. Brooklyn got outrebounded 42-33, but the Nets had more assists, 22-13.

Center DeMarcus Cousins gave the Nets defense fits with 29 points on 12-of-21 shooting. But Cousins was not pleased with the way the Kings were moving the ball around as Sacramento only had a team total of 13 assists, just three more than Brooklyn's Williams had all by himself.

"I feel like we need to share the ball more.We shared it a lot better today, but everybody's plan on the floor should be how can I make my teammates better?" Cousins told the Sacramento Bee.

Kings coach Keith Smart used the fourth different starting line-up this season as the team tries to figure a way ouf of their slump. "I was trying to get some guys with a little bit of know-how, a little understanding onto the floor," Smart said of the minor tweak.

The Kings made 37 of 80 shots with Tyreke Evans pouring in 21 to reinforce Cousins. Marcus Thornton added 12 markers.
