Kings roll past Spurs, extend winning streak to 4 games

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Harrison Barnes scored 29 points, Domantas Sabonis had 18 points and 18 rebounds, and the Sacramento Kings extended their winning streak to four games with a 132-119 win over the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday night.

De’Aaron Fox added 23 points and Davion Mitchell had 19 points for Sacramento. The Kings remain atop the Pacific Division, having won seven of 10.

San Antonio, which has lost four straight, was led by Jakob Poeltl’s 23 points. Josh Richardson added 21 points and Keldon Johnson had 20.

The Kings outscored the Spurs 39-26 in the third quarter as a large group of their fans serenaded them with chants of “Sac-ra-mento!” The Spurs were limited to nine field goals while the Kings shot 60% from the field.

San Antonio hit three consecutive 3-pointers in cutting a 12-point deficit to 111-106 four minutes into the final quarter. Johnson capped the run with consecutive 3-pointers, but air-balled his next attempt as the King extended their lead to 115-106.

San Antonio suffered a second consecutive double-digit loss after falling 144-113 to Golden State on Friday night in front of the largest regular-season crowd (68,323) in NBA history in a home-away-from-home game at the Alamodome.

The Spurs did not suffer a hangover from the historic evening, getting off to a fast start against the Kings.

Poeltl had eight points and two blocks in the opening 4½ minutes as the Spurs opened the game on a 13-4 run. Poeltl was 4 for 4 from the field during the run, driving into Sabonis.

San Antonio had 38 points in the first half, 14 from Poeltl.

TIP-INS

Kings: Sacramento’s last loss to San Antonio was Nov. 10, 2021, 136-117 at the AT&T Center. …. Former Spurs players Chimezie Metu and Trey Lyles seemed a bit surprised when they were recognized before the game for their two seasons in San Antonio. Metu spent his first two seasons in the league with the Spurs, averaging just over 5 minutes in a very limited role. Lyles played two seasons for the Spurs. Lyles averaged 6.4 points in 20.2 minutes while playing 63 games in his first season with San Antonio in 2019. Lyles played 23 games the following season, averaging five points in 15.6 minutes.

Spurs: F Doug McDermott missed the game due to upper back tightness. McDermott was initially listed as questionable after scoring 14 points in 22 minutes against Golden State on Friday.
