Final score from Rupp Arena is Sacramento Kings 124, Washington Wizards 119.
DeMarcus Cousins had the biggest game of all the former Cats, finishing with 22 points, 6 assists, and 5 rebounds in 26 minutes. Spoiler alert: he’s really, really good.
Willie Cauley-Stein scored 12 points on 5 of 6 shooting, pulled down 5 boards, and had 4 steals as well.
Skal Labissiere clearly struggled in this one. After playing only 4 minutes in the first half, his playing time got a noticeable increase in the second half. He finished with 4 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 blocks, and an assist. The rookie failed to attempt a shot in front of the Kentucky crowd.
For the Wizards, John Wall didn’t play for the entire fourth quarter, but still managed to finish with 11 points, 4 assists, and 4 steals.
