The Kings don't going away, which the Miami Heat were reminded of Friday evening at Golden 1 Center. Armed with reinforcements and a sold out crowd, Sacramento overcame a 17-point third quarter deficit to improve to 4-1 on their six-game homestand. Hassan Whiteside dominated the paint, Josh Richardson put up solid numbers and future Hall of Famer, Dwyane Wade, survived a nasty spill to score 15 points off the bench.
Following their roster shakeup at the NBA trade deadline, the Sacramento Kings looked lost in their battle with the Miami Heat on Friday night at Golden 1 Center. Led by Buddy Hield's late-game heroics and contributions up and down the lineup, the Kings erased a big fourth-quarter deficit to shock the Heat 102-96. Josh Richardson scored 21 points and Hassan Whiteside dropped in a monster double-double (17 points, 19 rebounds), but it wasn't enough to stop Sacramento.
Hassan Whiteside found his voice and the Miami Heat got a win. Whiteside had 28 points and 11 rebounds, and took on a vocal role as the Heat snapped a three-game losing streak with a 118-108 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night. We heard his voice tonight talking to us on both ends of the floor, talking to us in the huddle.
