PREVIOUSLY, THE SACRAMENTO KINGS...won their first game of the season Monday night, outlasting Memphis 127-116 in overtime. Kevin Martin lead the way with 48 points with most of the rest of the scoring coming off the bench, with four Kings reserves scoring as much or more than the other four Kings starters: Spencer Hawes (expected to start tonight) had 21, Beno Udrih had 16, Omri Casspi had 15, and Andres Nocioni (who may start tonight) scored 13. It was Sacramento's best defensive performance of the year as they held Memphis to 108 points per 100 possessions. The Kings' defensive efficiency for the seaon is 114.3 points per 100 possessions.
Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.
