It was a tough night in Indiana for the Sacramento Kings, losing 115-111. This is the second consecutive game in which the Kings were forced to head into overtime.
Darren Collison showed his versatility on the offensive end and finished with 26 points on 59 percent shooting from the field. That is why he was last night’s Reno Dodge Power Performer.
This is Collison’s second consecutive 20-point game, most recently, he had 23 points to help the Kings seal an overtime win against the Cavaliers. The Kings, obviously, are putting their trust in the point guard and he has been delivering as of late.
Collison started out the game as aggressive as you can be. He scored seven points, dished out three assists, and made two 3-pointers in the opening quarter.
This season, Collison is averaging a career-high from beyond the arc. He is currently shooting .406 percent from three and is averaging at least one a game.
That video above is enough proof of his confidence beyond the arc. Although it was ruled a two, Collison showed great poise and control.
Another thing to mention is that Collison had five assists. This might not seem impressive, but Collison has improved so much on his passing throughout the years. After leaving the Clippers in 2014, Collison could barely average three assists per game.
Last night, he did a great job of picking apart the Pacers defense and letting the game come to him. That is something he will definitely build on moving forward.
Will he continue his hot play tonight in Charlotte?
