Kings 119, Nuggets 114: Sacramento moves to 3-0 against Denver this season

Despite Nikola Jokic's herculean 50-point outing, four Kings eclipsed 20 points in a tough battle.

Four Kings eclipsed 20 points, as the Sacramento Kings knocked off the Denver Nuggets for the third consecutive time this season with a 119-114 victory.

Despite missing Jamal Murray, Gary Harris and Facundo Campazzo, Nikola Jokic assembled one of the most dominant performances you'll ever witness: 50 points (20-33 FG, 3-6 3P, 7-7 FT), 12 assists, eight rebounds, three blocks and one steal. However, the MVP candidate received minimal help from his teammates.

For Sacramento, De'Aaron Fox, Harrison Barnes, Richaun Holmes and Tyrese Haliburton all scored at least 21 points in a win where everyone chipped in with their strengths. Both teams traded blows, but the Kings exhibited immense firepower that Jokic failed to overcome alone.

The Kings opened the game with a 2-3 zone, forcing the ball out of Jokic's hands and making Denver shoot. Will Barton and Paul Millsap received open looks, but Barton struggled to knock his shots down throughout the game. Millsap would finish the game with a 3-4 clip from deep, but in the first quarter, the Nuggets combined for a 1-9 mark. Offensively, Sacramento ran multiple pick-and-rolls featuring Richaun Holmes, whose push shot was automatic all game. De'Aaron Fox created and converted on open jumpers, pushing the Kings to an early lead. However, the Cory Joseph and Hassan Whiteside two-man game on offense stalled, and Denver closed the gap. Sacramento led 26-25.

Whiteside, defensively, wreaked havoc on Denver. During the second quarter, Whiteside had already grabbed eight rebounds and blocked three shots in just nine minutes. Buddy Hield's three-point shot floundered as he went 0-5, but Hield showed promise with his passing game. Harrison Barnes continued to crush teams from deep, drilling two triples to maintain the lead. Sacramento would maintain a one-point lead at halftime, 53-52. Barnes led the way with 13 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 3P); Holmes added 12 points and five rebounds; Haliburton marshaled the bench with 11 points (4-7 FG). For Denver, Jokic garnered 14 points, four rebounds and six assists.

Sacramento continued to pound Denver with the Holmes' pick-and-roll game and finding ways to get Barnes downhill against Michael Porter Jr., who struggled against Barnes all night. By the quarter's conclusion, Barnes tallied 26 points (10-14 FG, 5-6 3P). Fox showed great poise with his three-point shot, coming off high screens and waltzing into open looks. His jumper was money all night. Buddy, however, was scoreless through 29 minutes. Sacramento maintained the lead after three.

Jokic made the fourth quarter super intriguing. It's tough to pitch a perfect defensive game against Jokic's talents, and Holmes couldn't agree more, despite the phenomenal defensive plays he had. Jokic nailed shots from all levels of the floor. But Sacramento's quadruple scoring punch reigned supreme, with Haliburton manifesting an excellent three-point shot yet again, drilling looks that shot Denver's confidence. Sacramento held on despite a wild final minute, winning 119-114. The Kings are now 11-11 through 22 games.

Game Notes

Despite shooting 1-11 from the field and 0-9 from three, Hield's passing chops were on full display. That's not something we say often, but his seven assists were all exquisite. The pick-and-roll game between Hield and Holmes resulted in many open push-shot attempts thanks to Hield's pocket passing, as well as how Hield swung the ball around on the perimeter.

The Fox-Hali dyad continues to shine. Despite Denver's thin backcourt, the two excelled together. Haliburton waltzed into threes while hitting open teammates, and Fox replicated the rookie. Both guards possessed a 4-7 clip from deep, torching Denver in that regard.

Hassan Whiteside had his usual lapses, but he provided a strong interior presence against Jokic at times. Whiteside finished with 11 points, 11 rebounds, four blocks and an assist out of the post.

Marvin Bagley featured little in the fourth quarter, but his performance was why. In 18 minutes, Bagley mustered just three points on 1-6 shooting along with two rebounds, one assist and one steal. Denver torched him at the rim.

Next Game

It's an abrupt turnaround for Sacramento as they now travel to Los Angeles to take on the Clippers tomorrow at 12:00 p.m. The Clippers have Sacramento's phone number from the last two matchups, so it'll be interesting to see how the Kings respond.

It’s nights like tonight that are the hardest to fathom the colossal 2018 draft fuckup … Pervis Bagley gets 3 points in 18 minutes (?), while Luka gets 42, 7 and 11 in a win over Golden State.

Bagley should be washing Haliburton’s car about once a week for taking all the heat off him this year.

Yeah pretty much. He’s definitely my favorite King since IT but really he might be favorite King since like Peja and Bibby. He’s just so damn good and so damn smart. And he’s so young that there’s just that excitement of realizing this is probably just the tip of the iceberg.

If you’re talking about Ricky Berry, our first round pick that killed himself after his rookie season back in the late 1980s, I hope you’re talking about his skill only and not being a huge douche bag by trying to be funny … because if you are, that’s fucked up.

Why would you assume I am referring to anything besides his skill. Ricky was so good as a rookie with bright days ahead. Why can’t there be a comparison on how good he was without using douche bag and Fucked up? I saw Ricky in person and he was so talented, he had all star potential and natural instincts- Tyrese has the same €œit€ factor. My bad on the misspelling of his last name.

This isn’t the first time I’ve heard him compared to Berry. G Man talked about it in one of the preseason games he called, and even seemed to still get choked up when he talks about the tragedy. I can imagine it had an impact on him that never really goes away.

I wasn’t watching sports back when this happened, so I only know the story from somewhat an outsider’s perspective, but from what I’ve seen of tape, I get why the two are compared. I also get why if true, outside of the tragedy, we should be very excited about this year’s 12th pick.

Tyrese is cold-blooded.

Fox is becoming a solid leader and face of the franchise.

Harrison Barnes is steady consistency.

It’s nice to have a big like Holmes that can drop 20+ if you set him up. Easy buckets.

Buddy didn’t have a good shooting night, but had one of the best games in his career IMHO. He made winning plays.

I love this team.

Yeah I sort of agree on Buddy. He couldn’t hit a shot to save his life but I thought for the most part he actually played within himself, moved the ball well and hustled on defense.

They’re becoming mentally tough. It’s an amazing feeling to know that we can execute our offense and play lock down defense in the 4th. What’s even more amazing is the other teams will eventually have the same feeling. They know we’re going to kick that ass in the 4th.

Damn right. Well stated. It’s hard to help your team win when you are shooting poorly, but Buddy did tonight. Even made a few passes that he could have legitimately shot late in the game to set up his teammates. Great team offense tonight.

This is true. But They have been shorthanded 2/3 times we played them IIRC. With us at full strength I would expect us, if we are indeed a playoff contender to take advantage and win those games. The question is if this year is a fluke because of the pandemic, which leads to us playing more shorthanded teams than normal, or are the 4-12 teams just actually that evenly matched. Beating Denver 3 times points to the latter, at least at the moment.

If the Kings traded Harrison Barnes now while the team is winning and didn’t get something really good in return, there would be a riot in the streets.

Or at least I would be out there. One-man riot!

This has been my exact point lately. I think HB is part of the development of TH and Fox. I hope he isn’t playing for a promised trade, his new found energy is part of the improvement. Do not trade HB, trade Bags and maybe Buddy if you get something tangible (not strictly picks or salary dump) in return. Timeline has room for a vet.

I’m starting to be OK with moving Bagley…I still think he’s going to turn out to be a real solid player but it’s not going to happen here. He’s stuck in a lose-lose situation here. He plays good, he gets less than 20 minutes…he plays bad, he gets less than 20 minutes. I think he’s shown enough that some team would take a flyer on him and his development. It’s clear we don’t want to be that team.

HB is playing where he should as 3rd/4th best. So in that regard, I am happy for him (whether or not it is trade bait or we keep him) – HB is still the best SF since Artest?

On that note, Fox is our best PG for the last couple of decades (perhaps our best drafted PG in history) – I hope he really does start soaring like an Eagle, and this has been his turning point.

The kid is a winner for sure. Kind of reminds me of when Baker Mayfield was drafted by Cleveland and said he didn’t plan on losing just because they had been. Sometimes it just takes someone to be a catalyst for everyone else.

We deserve to have a player like Tyrese that can do that.

I agree. HB has been as instrumental as Fox IMO for how they’re playing. I remember after we traded Shump, how we slumped. If they traded Barnes now, the team would go into a deep funk. He’s not replaceable, especially if they get a young guy who needs to learn how to play. HB is a pro’s pro.

I think Holmes will come in fourth place in the MVP awards this season.

Behind Fox, Barnes, and Haliburton. Tied with LeBron, and ahead of L*k*.

Holmes and Haliburton are the soul of this team.

We all know what happened out there.

Michael Malone summoned some kind of dark magic and possessed Jokic’s body, and was dead-set on winning this damn game.

Missed predicting the end scores by a combined 3 points these last two games and now that Kosta pointed that out to me I’m annoyed I haven’t gotten it dead on yet.

I for one would like to leverage your keen skill. Can we get the over/under pick up there on the next few?

The Steal with another great game. Momentum for ROY is building with every game.

To whoever I had the conversation about Whiteside with after last game, I gladly ate my words today. He played a pretty damn good game- and it’s a damn good day when this team wins. On another note, Tyrese is becoming Mr. Big Shot and I am alllllll for it
