The Kings had seven players who had a double-digit scoring game. They got massive production from the bench unit as well.

Bogdan Bogdanovic came off the bench to contribute 20 points for the team on 9-15 shooting from the field. Marvin Bagley III, the number 2 overall pick in this year's draft, is having an impressive rookie season and again provided a great spark from the bench.

He had a double-double scoring 17 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. He shot 4-5 from the field and 9-10 from the free throw line. Yogi Ferrell shot 4-4 from the deep and kept the Kings in command of the game.

The Kings will be looking for great production from their bench players in the upcoming matches as they hope of making the playoffs this season.
