Rudy Gay scored 29 points on 9-of-18 shooting (2-of-4 3PTs, 9-of-10 FTs) with 14 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in Friday’s overtime loss to the Blazers.
Gay had six turnovers but this might be the best game we’ve seen him play in a Kings uniform. He’s sitting on a top 25-30 season and folks telling you that he’s not that valuable because he’s definitely going to get traded to an undesirable location — they’re the marks. He might be traded but the Kings need him and he has a nice role for the Kings. It’s in both parties’ interest for this ride to continue. DeMarcus Cousins scored 33 points with nine rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in the loss.
