Patrick Beverley was the lone man back for the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night, as Rudy Gay led a 4-1 Sacramento Kings fastbreak … and the result was a vicious and-1 dunk.
DeMarcus Cousins led the way for the Kings with 26 points and 12 rebounds in the 107-97 win; James Harden scored a game-high 33 points for Houston.
In a strange incident, Boogie’s manager Andrew Rogers was booted out of the arena after making contact with Jason Terry following a Ben McLemore jam.
Per the Sac Bee:
“I’ve got a crazy team, and I’m kind of crazy,” George Karl said. […] Karl was commenting on some decisions his players make on the court, but there was plenty of crazy to go around Tuesday as the Kings defeated the Houston Rockets, 107-97, at Sleep Train Arena.
Perhaps the Kings embracing their label as the NBA’s reality TV show will be the team’s rallying point. […] “There’s some type of saying,” said Kings center DeMarcus Cousins. “A team usually matches the coach.”
Cousins ran to that end of the court when he saw what was happening (with Rogers and Terry), and security was ready to defuse the situation. […] “My biggest thing is, I didn’t want the situation to escalate too far,” he said. “It just shows I’ve got some ride or dies,” Cousins said.
