If you haven’t seen what Brandon put together for Wallace, GIVE IT A WATCH
The Kings encountered a playoff-caliber team playing at home that decided to play some tough defense.
“We kind of settled down to our defensive scheme, how we wanted to play defense,” forward Gerald Wallace said.
Portland just smothered the Kings after halftime. Here’s what the Blazers did defensively in the second half: held Sacramento to 23.7 percent field goal shooting and 33 points; forced 10 turnovers; and had five steals and blocked seven shots.
The Blazers allow the Kings to play to their strengths in the first half, falling behind by double-digits in the second quarter. Solid defense, forced turnovers, and fast-breaks make up that difference through the end of the first half and all through the second. The young Kings have no answer for Portland’s knockout punch and lose big
With two wins in two nights, Marcus Camby joked that he and the Portland Trail Blazers were ready to play again the next day.
