The last night of the NBA regular season at Power Balance…scratch that…Arco Arena was not just any other night. With the Maloofs mulling over relocation, the building was filled with every emotion you could possibly think of: joy, frustration, agony, sadness, jubilation and more. The game itself pitted old rivals in a contest that culminated 26 years of Sacramento Kings basketball. It was only fitting that the home team came back from a 20-point deficit to push the defending champion Lakers to the brink of defeat for perhaps one final time inside the cowbell kingdom.
