In the match against the Pelicans, Paul George was the most productive with 27 points, Jackson scored 19 points, and Ibaka scored only 13.
The Kings are 11th in the Western Conference standings with 8 wins and 14 losses. Walton's departure from the post of coach slightly cheered up Sacramento. The team even managed to win against Portland, the Lakers, but lost to the same LA, as well as Memphis. The Kings met with the Lakers on December 1. Fox managed to score only 17 points in that match, but Holmes showed himself in the best way, who recorded 27 points and 9 rebounds.
