After winning five straight games, including four on its previous home stand the Spurs began its annual Rodeo road trip. The Spurs played at Sacramento on Monday night to begin a tough West coast swing playing some of the highest ranking teams on its rodeo schedule. The Kings, 10th in the Western Conference and looking to continue its own 4 game home winning streak did not perform like a team on the outside looking in as they had their way for a 127 – 112 victory. Not a good start to the road trip.
The Kings outshot the Spurs 56% to 43% to come away with the win. Marvin Bagley III led the charge with a career high 24 points and 12 rebounds off the bench. Spurs were led in scoring by DeMar DeRozan’s 24 points and LaMarcus Aldridges’ 22 points and 9 rebounds. The usually hot handed 3-point shooter Marco Belinelli was only 1 for 7 from long range.
