The road woes continue for the Sacramento Kings, as they’ve dropped the first five games of their Eastern swing and fell to 3-17 on the road. Despite scoring right with the Miami Heat, they couldn’t stop the Eastern Conference champs for four.
Dwyane Wade keeps his crazy run going, finishing with 30 points and 10 assists on 11 of 16 shooting. Chris Bosh added 20 points and 10 rebounds, and Mario Chalmers scored 20 points thanks mostly to his six three pointers. LeBron James added 18 points and eight assists. The Heat shot 55% from the field and nailed ten threes and got huge bench points from Udonis Haslem, Mike Miller and Norris Cole.
Isaiah Thomas hit five three pointers in the third quarter and paced Sacramento to 35 points, but they were still outscored there as Miami hit 36. Thomas had 24 points to lead Sacramento, Tyreke Evans added 21 points, seven rebounds and 10 assists, and Marcus Thornton had 23 of his own.
Sacramento has one final road game in their East Coast road trip against the hapless Wizards.
