Rudy Homosexual’s free throws give Kings win in final game at Sleep Train Arena

Rudy Homosexual scored the final two points at Sleep Train Arena.

Not that he was celebrating being the reply to that trivia question in the future.

Homosexual was more relieved that the Kings had managed to edge the OK City Thunder, 114-112, in the residence finale that was a celebration of the past before the team moves to Golden one Middle for following season, in front of the twenty-sixth announced-sellout crowd of the season.

Homosexual made two free throws with one one to play, makes that were redemption after he missed a free toss that'd have given the Kings a four-point lead with eleven seconds to play.

That allowed Russell Westbrook to toss the ball at the rim with seven seconds to play from beyond the three-point line. He was awarded three free throws and made all three to tie the score at 112-112.

Homosexual was fouled on a drive to the rim to set up the game-winning foul shots.

“My teammates still trusted at the finish of the game and I'd to perform,” Homosexual said.

The free throws guaranteed the packed arena was pleased at the final buzzer. There was a heightened sense of excitement all night, with more than fifty former Kings, and former coach Rick Adelman and former common manager Geoff Petrie in attendance.

“It was fun,” said guard Darren Collison. “The crowd was incredible the whole night. They were on their feet beautiful much the whole all game. I’m just pleased that we got this win for this latest residence game for them.”

The fans have supported the Kings well all season, even though the team has fallen brief of the playoff expectations many had.

“I think we saw what these fans can be in the close future if we create the playoffs,” Collison said. “They’ve been great. Ever since I signed here, these fans have been so unbelievable. Even when we were down, when we didn’t perceive love we deserved their appreciation, they still came. So we’re going to attempt to reward them (following season) by trying to create it to the playoffs.”

The twenty-six sellouts are the most since the 2006-07 season, when the Kings sold out all forty-one residence games. In all, the Kings sold out seven hundred eighty of 1.122 games in the building since it opened Nov. eight, 1988.

Kings coach George Karl said the team rode the electricity from the fans to the win.

That was thanks to Collison (team-high twenty-seven points, eight assists), Homosexual (twenty-four points, eight rebounds) and Seth Curry (twenty points).

DeMarcus Cousins had fifteen points on 7-of-twenty-four shooting before fouling out in the fourth quarter.

The players mightn't have been caught up in all the former players, but were boosted by the crowd, which was loud with cowbells ringing all night.

“It’s a tiny different for me,” Gay said. “I don’t even know half the history here. Obviously I grew up watching Sacramento play against the Lakers and I know about the (Mike) Bibby shot. I think the fans create you emotional about it, seeing how passionate they're about this building.”

Karl was a proponent of the Kings staying in Sacramento. He said the crowd left his ears ringing, similar to the raucous crowds he encountered coaching Seattle in the one thousand nine hundred ninety-six playoffs when the building “scared” him as an opposing coach.

“Fans are incredible,” Karl said. “Fans are first class, style, loyal, committed and following year they obtain a great new building that hopefully will have more playoff games. Rather than just regular-season kind wins, let’s have some playoff nice wins.”

Kevin Durant led OK City with a game-high thirty-one points. Westbrook had 24 points and ten assists.
