Sacramento Kings Blown Out By Thunder, Losing Streak At Seven Games

The Sacramento Kings are playing their worst basketball of the season right now. Entering a game against one of the league's best teams in the Oklahoma City Thunder, even a close score would be considered a victory for Sacramento. That was not the case on Friday night as the team fell by a score of 115-89.

The Kings held tough in the first quarter and trailed by just two at the conclusion of the first 12 minutes, but it went all downhill from there. The Thunder outscored them 35-18 in the second quarter, and they coasted in the second half to one of their biggest victories of the year.

Isaiah Thomas continued to play well and had 21 points, three assists and no turnovers. Tyreke Evans played just 14 minutes and had two points, while DeMarcus Cousins was held in check for nine and 12 rebounds.

Even without James Harden in the lineup, the Thunder had no trouble picking apart the Kings on defense. Kevin Durant had 29, Russell Westbrook added 22 and Derek Fisher provided 14 points off the bench.

Just keep on tanking for a higher draft pick, Kings.

Next up: the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday afternoon.
