Sacramento Kings Defenseless In 122-93 Loss To Denver Nuggets

The Sacramento Kings put up no resistance whatsoever against the Denver Nuggets in a blowout defeat. The Kings gave up 32 points in the first quarter, were outscored 34-17 in the second quarter as they were down 23 at halftime, then gave up another 56 points in the second half.
