The Kings thought they were proving their point when they went up by four to start the game. The Bobcats quickly took care of that while going on an 11-2 run to take an 11-6 lead with 4:53 left in the quarter. The Bobcats were leading 15-13 with 2:44 left in the quarter when they went on an 8-0 run to finish the quarter. Garcia picked up 2nd foul with 1:17 left in the quarter, but that did not matter much as neither team scored for the rest of the quarter.
The Kings pulled to within 7 at 28-21 with 4:45 left in the quarter when the Bobcats went on a 7-1 run to take a 35-21 lead with 2:39 left. The Kings then went on an 8-4 run to close the gap to within ten by the end of the quarter.
With 2:12 left in the third quarter the Cats led 50-40. The Bobcats then went on a 10-3 run to take a 60-43 lead heading into the fourth quarter after Thornton picked up his 4th foul!
With 3:56 left in the fourth the Bobcats led 67-51 and the Kings were getting mad. Their plan had not worked and the Bobcats were toying with them! The Kings decided to get down to business and 14-6 run to finish the game and get the lead under single digits.
Odd stat: Dahntay Jones tried his best to be the last Bobcat to score but not one of his 7 shot went in!
After the game Manfred rejected a trade offer.
