” 42, 42, 42, 42, 42. I’ll bet on 42. Mike Brown originally did the boot his post-match press conference. This number, repeated several times by the Kings coach and able to ask reporters in his presence, only represents the number of points received in the racket of his team, against the Magic.
If the former Warriors assistant is insistent and enthusiastic about this statistic, it’s because his team is one of the worst students in the area. With almost 55 points conceded on average in its racket, Sacramento is the third team with the most conceded in this area.
” We have to defend if we want to achieve our goals and that starts with protecting the racket and getting balls out to the shooters. I’m happy with what our guys did to protect the circle tonight Posted by Mike Brown.
By locking their paint this way, the Kings cause Magic to play against nature, pushing them away from the circle. With 44 shots attempted from behind the arc (14/44), against just 31 on average for the season, Paolo Banchero and his team have yet to try their luck from long range.
The Kings scored four more points from the opposing racket but also used the prized shot as a punitive weapon. With more efficiency than Magic. With an infectious desire to share the leather, the Kings tied their season high with 39 assists that contributed to the team’s 23 award-winning field goals converted (23/46).
Mike Brown wasn’t surprised
It was a new franchise record, made official by an award-winning final shot by Matthew Dellavedova. The previous mark was established in November 2021 with 22 units. A small feat when you know the De’Aaron Fox – Malik Monk duo finished with 1/10 from distance. But Harrison Barnes (6/7), Keegan Murray (5/6) or Kevin Huerter (4/8) all paid off.
” I’ve said before, we have a lot of shooters on this team. Malik’s shots were excellent, two out of four of them should have fallen, so it could be higher. The way we stretched the field, how we shared the ball… I don’t want to sound arrogant or anything, but I’m not surprised by the shooters we have. Anytime you get a record, especially in this area, it’s a good thing “Judge Mike Brown.
The most effective shooter on the night with his 30 points on 11/13 shots, Harrison Barnes remembered that his team, 15th best in the league before this match (36%), was not content to rest on this gun every night. ” It’s great to see the ball go in, but generally we’re not going to live or die with it. It’s good that we did it tonight, but we didn’t expect that to be the case the rest of the week and that we’d score 25 or even 30 in a game fair warning to the veteran.
