Kings try to carry momentum through end of February in crucial week
The Sacramento Kings are riding a three-game winning streak as they enter this week’s slate of home games. The Kings started the second half of the season off on the right foot at home by defeating the Denver Nuggets, 116-110. DeMarcus Cousins led the way with a game-high 37 points, 20 rebounds, and four blocks while Rajon Rondo flirted with a triple-double (24 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists).
Cousins’ monster performance highlighted his 32nd double-double of the season, but more impressively, it was the ninth time in his career whereby he scored at least 20 points and collected at least 20 rebounds in the same game.
Cousins also joins some elite company by becoming just the 12th player since 1983 to score 37 points, 20 rebounds, and four blocks in a single contest; Kevin Garnett last completed this feat in 2003. The Kings will close out the week at home with contests against the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers.
Below is ticket information comparing the prices from the primary market to those on secondary.
2/24/16 Sacramento Kings vs San Antonio Spurs | Primary Get-in: $15
The savvy San Antonio Spurs will travel to the Sleep Train Arena for a mid-week tilt against the Kings. The Spurs enter this contest, winning two of their last three games.
Earlier this year, San Antonio defeated Sacramento, 106-88. Kawhi Leonard scored a game-high 24 points. Slowing him down will be a priority for Sacramento. On the primary ticket market, the cheapest ticket price is $15, which is much lower than the cheapest prices on the secondary ticket market for $36.
2/26/16 Sacramento Kings vs Los Angeles Clippers | Primary Get-in: $20
The Los Angeles Clippers will travel to the Sleep Train Arena for the final time on Friday evening. Los Angeles has won two out of the first three meetings against Sacramento, but dropped the most recent meeting in Los Angeles, 110-103.
Los Angeles did not have the services of DeAndre Jordan or Blake Griffin, which allowed DeMarcus Cousins to score and rebound at will. Cousins finished the game with 19 points, 13 rebounds, and six assists. On the primary ticket market, the cheapest price is $20, which is lower than the cheapest prices on the secondary ticket market listed at $45.
