Kings hold off Pacers for 127-122 win
(SACRAMENTO) – Buddy Hield made a big 3-pointer moments after Indiana's Domantas Sabonis had a basket taken away following a replay review, and the Sacramento Kings were able to beat the Pacers 127-122 on Monday night. Hield finished with 18 points on six 3s as the Kings won for the second time in seven games. Harrison Barnes had a season-high 30 points and eight rebounds, and De'Aaron Fox added 21 points and nine assists. The Kings held a one-point lead when Sabonis went up underneath the basket and was credited with a bucket as Richaun Holmes was called for goaltending with 1:25 remaining. After a lengthy review, the call was overturned. Sabonis had 28 points and 11 rebounds for the Pacers. Malcolm Brogdon added 24 points, while Victor Oladipo and Doug McDermott scored 21 apiece. Indiana forced turnovers on two of the first three possessions of the game, but coach Nate Bjorkgren felt the Pacers' defense broke down at key times.
