After the game ended, the starting centers for the Sacramento Kings and Miami Heat were asked about the officiating. Both DeMarcus Cousins and Hassan Whiteside were not pleased, as reported by ESPN. The Heat defeated the Kings in overtime by a score of 108-96.
Sacramento Kings Starters
The combination of Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins were simply amazing together. The tandem combined for 60 points, 19 rebounds, and five assists against the Miami Heat. They also combined to get to the free throw line 24 times and missed only four of those shots. If the Kings were to get that type of contribution from Gay and Cousins, then Sacramento will win more games than expected.
Sacramento Kings forward Matt Barnes had eight rebounds, two assists, and a steal. However, he struggled mightily with his shot. Barnes missed all seven shots, including five from the outside. That amounted to zero points for the evening.
Starting Kings guard Arron Afflalo provided more on offense than he normally does. He took 17 shots, which was one more than DeMarcus Cousins. Afflalo chipped in with 18 points, which was a nice surprise for the Kings.
