Washington Wizards Three Takeaways: Washington Wizards fell to the Sacramento Kings at Rupp Arena on Saturday night, 124-119.
For some reason, there are NBA games that aren’t broadcasted in 2016. Even if a network doesn’t pick a game up or it’s being played in an obscure place, online streaming is an instant solution.
On Saturday night, the Washington Wizards played against the Sacramento Kings at Rupp Arena.

John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins, the two stars on each respective team, played together at the arena during their one-year stint with the University of Kentucky.
Given that both players are basketball legends at the school, you would think that someone – one of the teams, even – would make sure the game is able to be watched by people that weren’t in attendance. Apparently, no one cared enough to solve the problem.
Saturday’s game wasn’t broadcasted on television nor radio, so we had to use our imaginations.
Washington lost 124-119 in regulation.
The defense regressed again
Recently, I praised the Washington Wizards for stepping up defensively against the Philadelphia 76ers. I should have proceeded with caution. It is the Sixers, after all.
Sacramento made 60 percent of their total shots.
Cousins scored 22 points in 26 minutes. For the fifth straight game, a big man has managed to have an outstanding performance against Washington. The team’s interior defense has been bad, to say the least.
