The Washington Wizards just concluded a five-game road trip and were trying to avoid having their three-game losing streak extended to four games as they hosted the struggling Sacramento Kings. The Kings would not oblige however, rallying back after halftime to hand the Wizards their fourth loss in a row while snapping their own six-game losing streak.
The Wizards held a lead at halftime, but couldn't do enough defensively or offensively to slow down the Kings. John Wall once again picked up a double-double, scoring 21 points with 11 assists. Nick Young went on a three-point shooting spree, but only sunk four of his ten shots, picking up 17 points in the loss. Jordan Crawford led the Wiz in scoring however, picking up 32 points.
The Kings had both Tyreke Evans picked up 22 points, missing on just two shots on the night. Marcus Thornton also picked up 22 points while DeMarcus Cousins picked up a double-double with 16 points and 16 rebounds in the win.
