San Antonio vs. Sacramento, Final Score: Spurs can’t stop Kings late in 119-109 loss

Another game, another singular stretch decides the outcome.

The Spurs came into to the AT&T Center on an icy night in San Antonio, hoping to put an end to their six-game losing streak against the surging Sacramento Kings. Unfortunately, it ended being just like most of their losses this season where one poor stretch — in this case a 12-0 Kings run in the second quarter — put them in a double-digit hole they couldn’t quite crawl out of, and they ended up losing their seventh straight, 109-119, after getting within a point in the fourth quarter.

Malaki Branham led five Spurs in double figures with 22 points off the bench, while Keldon Johnson and Jakob Poeltl had 18 points apiece for a starting unit that lost both Jeremy Sochan and Tre Jones to injury in the first quarter. Domontas Sabonis dominated inside with a season-high 34 points, and De’Aaron Fox scored 31 points.
