Kings fall to surging Pelicans

Two-way forward JaKarr Sampson was back from the Reno Bighorns, which meant the Kings had their instant boost of energy off the bench.

The Kings still need to find that energy at all times. Sampson isn't around every game due to his contract, so the Kings need someone to be a spark consistently.


Randolph scored his 19 points in just 26 minutes. When he does play, he's a player the Kings can count on for offense, but there is still a struggle to find a go-to player to break runs.

Hield can score, but is primarily a jump shooter and he missed seven of his first 10 shots. Not having Fox didn't help, but this has been a problem all season.
