The Sacramento Kings lost a very winnable game tonight, as they were never able to find a productive lineup. John Salmons was the only King who had a decent night offensively, yet he only recorded one assist. The Kings had 17 turnovers to only 14 assists. Sacramento never seemed to find a rhythm as it came out cold in the first quarter in a 98-85 loss in Milwaukee.
The Kings have shown that they are not a team that can come back from early deficits, and has developed a scary tendency of falling behind early in games.
Tyreke Evans managed to score six late fourth quarter points, giving him 17 points overall but was never really able to find his stroke shooting 6-15 from the field and turning the ball over 5 times. Aaron Brooks also struggled from the field as he went 3-11 from the field scoring only 10 points, and turning the ball over four times.
The Milwaukee Bucks had five players score in double digits, including four of their five starters. Ersan Ilyasova had a huge double double scoring 16 points on 7-11 from the field, grabbing 14 rebounds, getting 2 steals, and 2 blocked shots. He was the Biggest factor for the Bucks tonight as he only played 23 minutes.
Monta Ellis had a great night as he recorded a double double scoring 17 points and recording 11 assists. Ellis would have had a far better game if he managed to handle the ball better, as he turned the ball over four times. Milwaukee only turned the ball over as a team 9 times.
