Teams down two points with one second left almost always lose.
The Kings beat the odds when Nemanja Bjelica hit the game-winning 3-pointer against the Rockets last night.
Run that last possession 100 times, and Sacramento would mostly lose. But credit the Kings for taking Houston, a good team, the distance on the road. Even having that final opportunity reflects well on Sacramento.
That was Bjelica's message after the game - a point he felt quite strongly about.
Bjelica closed his on-court interview on NBC Sports California with:
I love it. This was genuine emotion of a big moment for him.
The NBA might not be as fond. Marc Gasol got fined $15,000 for closing an on-court interview a couple years ago with, "Overall, we won. F- it."
