The Kings went into this game with the chance to win their fifth straight game and push their record to 6-4.
They were trying to do so against a Bulls team that hadn’t cracked the 100-point mark all season and actually hadn’t even scored 95 points in a contest. They’re one of the five ...
It’s a simple thing that most people are too stubborn to do. It’s the reason relationships and understandings break down every day.
