Sacramento Kings vs. Miami Heat:
The Miami Heat defeated the Sacramento Kings 104-98 on Wednesday evening in the first of their three fights. The Heat, without starters Bam Adebayo and Kendrick Nunn, got off to a great start thanks to Duncan Robinson’s remarkable outdoor shots.
The former Michigan Wolverines player showed little rust and immediately returned to the flow of things to score the game’s first basket from outside the arch. The uncovered sniper collected 12 quick points that were chosen from afar when the heat took a 21-8 lead behind the three-point line during 7/8 shooting. Erik Spoelstra’s team only met from inside when Andre Iguodala pocketed an undisputed dunk with 2:13 in the quarter.
Miami led the way with 17 points in the first half and ended the period by 12 points. The Kings returned to outperform the Eastern Conference team by 10 points in the third quarter. Buddy Hield and Kent Bazemore proved difficult to handle as Luke Walton’s team were only two points behind their opponents in the fourth quarter.
Spoelstra decided to keep Goran Dragic and Jimmy Butler out of the entire second half to reach the end of his bench. The kings scored two points several times in the fourth; However, rookies Tyler Herro, Gabe Vincent, and Chris Silva have been instrumental in maintaining their team’s leadership until the end of the game.
Robinson led all Heat scorers with 18 points in his 20 minutes played and scored five out of 14 points in Miami.
