- Tyreke Evans is feeling good this evening. The Kings star guard, whose play has been hampered this season due to a battle with plantar fasciitis, said pregame that the injury isn’t hurting him today. “It feels a lot better,” Evans said. “Usually when I wake up it’s sore, but it felt good today. The doctor said it’s on and off – one day I might not feel it, the next day it might pop back up. It’s just a thing that I have to rehab, keep getting treatment for and hopefully it will go away soon. … I have been feeling better body wise so I’m trying to go out there, attack and keep the defense on their heels any chance I get.”
- The last time the Kings took their home court in Sacramento, Evans made a 50-foot buzzer-beater to beat Memphis. In his last two home games, Evans is averaging 26.5 points. He scored just 12 points in a road loss to Denver in the team’s last game on Saturday to Denver.
- The Suns announced Sunday that they have assigned rookie center Garret Siler to the Iowa Energy of the NBA Developmental League. The 6-foot-11 undrafted big man out of Augusta State was averaging 1.3 points and 1.5 rebounds in 5.8 minutes.
- Phoenix has lost four of its last five games, but won its last game on Friday at home against the Pistons. However, a stronger indicator for tonight’s game in Sacramento is that the Suns have won six consecutive meetings against Sacramento.
