Bagley s career-high 24 points lead Kings past Spurs 127-112

By Josh Dubow, Associated Press SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Rookie forward Marvin Bagley III had a career-high 24 points and 12 rebounds for his third straight double-double, leading the Sacramento Kings past the San Antonio Spurs 127-112 on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) for their seventh straight home win. De'Aaron Fox added 20 points and Buddy Hield scored 18 to extend Sacramento's longest home winning streak since a 14-gamer in 2005-06. That was the last time the Kings made the playoffs, but Sacramento (28-25) is positioned to make a run at a postseason spot this season. The Kings trail the Los Angeles Clippers by a half-game for eighth place in the Western Conference. DeMar DeRozan had 24 points and LaMarcus Aldridge added 22 for the Spurs, who lost the opener of their annual eight-game rodeo road trip. Sacramento coach Dave Joerger was fearful his team could have a "hangover" after an emotional win at home Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time) against Philadelphia. But the young Kings responded with another victory, helping them seal their first season-series win over the Spurs since 2001-02. Sacramento had lost 14 straight to San Antonio before winning at home in November and followed it up with another. The teams meet for the final time in the regular season March 31 (April 1, PHL time) in San Antonio. The Kings started to pull ahead midway through the third quarter. Hield made a driving layup followed by a three-pointer in transition to build the lead to 91-80, and Sacramento led by 12 heading into the fourth. The Spurs cut the deficit in half early in the fourth but Bagley energized the crowd with an alley-oop dunk when he rotated nearly 360 degrees after catching the lob from Yogi Ferrell to help stave off a comeback attempt. The Kings made seven three-pointers in the first quarter to take a 14-point lead before the Spurs fought back in the second to briefly go back ahead. Fox's buzzer-beating layup put Sacramento up 63-59 at halftime. TIP-INS Spurs: G Derrick White didn't join the team for the start of the road trip because of a heel injury. "He'll be out for a while," coach Gregg Popovich said. "The MRI wasn't great. So we'll see." Davis Bertans started in place of White. Kings: Sacramento made 10 three-pointers in the first half to extend the franchise record for most games in a season with double-digit three's. The Kings have done it 41 times this season, seven more than the previous mark set two years ago. ... Ferrell scored 19 points on 7-for-7 shooting and Harry Giles had 11 as Sacramento outscored the Spurs 60-32 from the bench. BUZZER BEATERS There was a frantic end to the third quarter. Patty Mills missed a shot for San Antonio that Nemanja Bjelica rebounded with 4.1 seconds left. He got the ball to Fox, who went coast-to-coast for a layup with 1.4 seconds to go. But Bertans then threw an outlet pass to Mills, who responded with a layup of his own with 0.2 seconds left in the quarter.

Pacers Oladipo undergoes surgery for ruptured quad tendon

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo understands the recovery from the ruptured quad tendon in his right knee will long and grueling. He is determined not to come back even stronger after undergoing surgery Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). “He is expected to make a full recovery. No timetable has been established for his return,” the Pacers said. Oladipo was injured in Wednesday’s (Thursday, PHL time) victory over Toronto. He was scrambling back to defend an outlet pass when his leg bent awkwardly and he fell to the ground. Trainers immediately a draped a towel over his injured leg and he was taken off the court on a stretcher. An MRI on Thursday (Friday, PHL time) confirmed the Pacers’ worst fears — their top scorer would not play again this season. Over the weekend, though, Oladipo addressed the injury for the first time publicly. “I can’t even lie the last few months have been really tough for not only me but for my family as well. You give it your all, literally your blood, sweat and tears to the game you love and things like this happen,” he wrote on Instagram, adding that he will rely on his faith to help him get through the rehabilitation. He thanked fans and others from around the league for sharing their support.         View this post on Instagram                   I can’t even lie the last few months have been really tough for not only me but for my family as well. You give it your all, literally your blood, sweat and tears to the game you love and things like this happen. No matter how much hard work and effort you put into perfecting your craft you cannot predict the challenges you’ll face ahead. But there is always that point in time where you wonder why it’s happening to you. You even wonder if there was something you could have done differently to prevent the outcome. The confusion, the contemplation, the anger, the sadness and the tears that flow frequently come, but they never last. The amount of support, love and prayers that I have received over the past few days have been breathtaking and has truly inspired me to come back even better than before. Thank you to everyone including all my teammates, pacer fans and staff. Thank you to all the NBA fans around the world and all my brothers around the league who texted, called, tweeted and posted me I am truly thankful. It’s going to be tough but tough times don’t last tough people do. It’s time for me to truly practice what I preach and trust my God in heaven and the plan he has for me. I will be back better than ever and if you question that well, thank you. Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world! I am #UnBreakable. A post shared by Victor Oladipo (@vicoladipo) on Jan 26, 2019 at 9:31am PST Tyreke Evans replaced Oladipo in the starting lineup Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) at Memphis and scored nine points in Indiana’s 106-103 loss. The Pacers currently hold the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference chase and many expect them to struggle against a tougher schedule over the next three months without Oladipo, who averaged 19.2 points. But even though Indiana is 7-5 without Oladipo this season, coach Nate McMillan said Thursday (Friday, PHL time) he expected to discuss options as the Feb. 7 (Feb. 8, PHL time) trade deadline nears. Whatever happens next, coaches and teammates have acknowledged repeatedly that Oladipo remains upbeat about his recovery. “There is always that point in time where you wonder why it’s happening to you. You even wonder if there was something you could have done differently to prevent the outcome,” he wrote in the post. “The confusion, the contemplation, the anger, the sadness and the tears that flow frequently come, but they never last.
