2. November 25th @ Boston Celtics
Buddy Hield genuinely does not like the Boston Celtics. Just eight days after he dropped a season-high 35 points in a game that the Sacramento Kings won versus the Celtics, he topped that performance in TD Garden.
The guard would score a game-high 41 points, once again putting his full offensive arsenal on display in 42 minutes of play. Hield shot 15-of-26 from the field, an impressive 57.7 percent. He seemingly had everything going for him in this game offensively, especially his long ball.

Hield was doing most of his damage from behind the arc as he did in the last game against Boston, except this time hitting a sensational 11 three-pointers as the game came down to its final moments.
It has been Hield’s only game this season with double-digit three-point makes, an extraordinary moment in his season.
Despite putting on a career-best performance to that point, the Kings would fall just short of victory. Jaylen Brown‘s 24 points along with Jayson Tatum‘s 20 points were too much for the Kings in the end.
The Celtics would, unfortunately, even out the season series and steal the game from the Kings 103-102 to spoil Hield’s career night offensively.
Even in a losing effort, Hield’s performance was indeed a memorable one, good enough for his second-best showing on the season.
