Records Broken And Goodbyes
Sacramento will change their flag for next season moving to the Golden 1 Center. Goodbye to the Sleep Train Arena. A pavilion that has served the Kings for 28 years and 1,122 games. That long history, that piece of franchise history faded as the team played its last game in the old pavilion. Will surely be remembered as the team prepares to make new memories in the new address.
The Sleep Train was completely booked solid and an excited goodbye to the fans and all levels of the club. And victory. A fitting Triumph hurried in the farewell: 114-112 to Oklahoma City with 2 free throws from Rudy Gay to bring the victory to the team.
The emotional farewell included in the halftime the presence on the court of 50 prominent former players of the Kings. Among them, names like Rick Adelman, Spud Webb, Mike Bibby, Kenny Smith or Vinny Del Black.
Next season, the Vivek Ranadive team will play in a new pavilion, the Golden 1 Center, whose cost has exceeded 500 million and will come to be the new home for the team and they leave a huge piece of history with the Sleep Train many fans had their farewell to the sound of victory.
Curry again breaking records
He did not have his best night, Stephen Curry against the Grizzlies. The prominent star of the Warriors missed 11 of the 14 triple thrown. Although those 3-pointers helped him to reach a round number in his different marks: 150 consecutive regular season games scoring at least one triple in each game!
Curry broke the tremendous record set by legendary Kyle Korver. He did this feat this very season, in late February. Korver accumulated in the past, 127 games without going blank from the triple core. Well, Curry continues day after day making that record unreachable, already in 150.
The Golden State player has scored 388 shots from beyond the arc in 77 games with a 45.2% success rate. Still remaining, 2 games in regular season left to play. 12 more for him to reach the magic figure of 400 triples in a single course. Unthinkable before this season started.
