Sacramento Kings Crushed By Boston Celtics

Jared Sullinger's 20 points and 11 rebounds helped the Celtics to cruise to a victory over the Kings on Wednesday. The Celtics used a balanced attack to pull this game out. Kelly Olynyk had 15, Marcus Smart 11, and Jae Crowder 12.

Sacramento shot 36% from the field, and 13% from three point in the loss. 

Cousins scored 11 on 5-17 shooting, Collison had 14, and Ben McLemore added 12. Cousins was ejected in the second half aftrer getting his second technical foul of the game after throwing Marcus Smart to the game.

The Kings now drop to 15-19 on the year, and just don't look like the team they did to start the season. Part of that is a 5+ game losing streak when Cousins was out, and part of it is the firing of head coach Michael Malone. The Kings' goal is 35 wins at this point.

The Celtics are now 11-18, and after trading Rajan Rondo, look to continue their rebulding process. They are loaded with picks the next few years and have shown improvement this season compared to last.
