Kings Vs. Blazers Score: Gerald Wallace, Jamal Crawford Lead Portland to 101-89 Win

The Portland Trail Blazers were the ones who won the services for Jamal Crawford over the Sacramento Kings this offseason. Tonight Sacramento is probably really wishing they'd tried harder.

The Blazers raced away from the Kings midway through the second quarter, putting up a double digit lead and cruising comfortably through the second half on the way to victory. Crawford scored 26 points on 18 shots along with five assists and three rebounds, Gerald Wallace chipped in with 20 points and 8 rebounds, LaMarcus Aldridge added 13 points and 16 rebounds, Wes Matthews chipped in 14 points, and Raymond Felton added 11 points.

Sacramento is getting better at moving the ball and taking care of the ball, but their shooting was abominable tonight (40%). Tyreke Evans shot 2 of 10 for 9 points, Donte Greene shot 4 of 13 for 12 points, Isaiah Thomas shot 3 of 12 for 11 points. On the bright side, Jimmer Fredette added 13 points, Francisco Garcia put up 12 points, and DeMarcus Cousins had 18 points and 13 rebounds.
