Sacramento, CA – In their first game without head coach Paul point halftime deficit to shock the Milwaukee Bucks, 103-100.
Sacramento found itself down by a point, 100-99, with 44.4 seconds left in the game.

Jackson missed a jumper from the right wing on Milwaukee's ensuing possession and Evans made another pair from the line to make it a 103-100 game with 2.6 seconds remaining.
After a timeout, Brandon Jennings had an open look from the left wing to tie it, but his shot clanked off the front of the rim.
Evans finished the contest with 26 points, 10 rebounds and five assists for the Kings, who had lost five of six coming in.
Jennings netted 31 points and dished out seven assists to pace the Bucks, who have lost three straight.
