Keegan Murray made 12 three-point shots in a game, just two short of the NBA record. He also scored a career-high 47 points, helping the Kings secure a 125-104 victory against the Jazz.

Keegan Murray had an outstanding game on Saturday, scoring a personal best of 47 points and setting a new team record by making 12 three-pointers. His impressive performance led the Sacramento Kings to a 125-104 victory over the Utah Jazz.

Murray had an impressive shooting performance, making 16 out of 23 shots from the field and 12 out of 14 from long range. Along with his scoring, he also grabbed eight rebounds. Before this, his highest-scoring game was 30 points in Houston on Feb. 6.

In the game, the second-year forward made 12 of his first 13 3-pointers, getting close to Klay Thompson’s NBA record 14, but unfortunately, he missed his last two attempts. Despite that, he joined a small group of seven players who have made 12 or more 3-pointers in a single game.

Murray broke the team record for 3-pointers. The old record was 11, set by Buddy Hield on Nov. 25, 2019, against Boston.

Murray made a new team record by scoring 25 points in the third quarter. This beat Mitch Richmond’s previous record of the fourth quarter against Houston on Dec. 15, 1995.

Sacramento made 22 out of 45 shots from beyond the three-point line and won the game, even though their top scorer De’Aaron Fox couldn’t play due to a sore right shoulder.

Domantas Sabonis contributed with 20 points, 10 rebounds, and eight assists for the Kings.

Colin Sexton scored 28 points and led the Jazz in the game.

Embiid shines again as 76ers pound Hornets

Joel Embiid stayed hot, scoring 42 points and grabbing 15 rebounds. The Philadelphia 76ers, on a winning streak, handed the short-handed Charlotte Hornets their biggest-ever loss with a score of 135-82 on Saturday.

Tyrese Maxey scored 21 points for the 76ers, and the team has won six consecutive games.

During the last six games, Embiid has been on fire, scoring an average of 40 points with an impressive shooting percentage of 61.9% and pulling down 12.8 rebounds.

Charlotte didn’t have key players, including starters LaMelo Ball, Gordon Hayward, and Mark Williams, and reserves P.J. Washington and Cody Martin. Additionally, their top scorer Terry Rozier had to leave the game in the third quarter due to an elbow to the nose.

Brandon Miller scored 14 points to lead the Hornets, making 4 out of 16 shots.

Before this game, Charlotte’s biggest loss was a 50-point defeat to Milwaukee on Jan. 10, 2000.

Pistons’ losing streak reaches 23

Damian Lillard put up 33 points, and Bobby Portis had a season-high 31 as the Milwaukee Bucks easily defeated the Detroit Pistons, securing their 23rd consecutive loss with a final score of 146-114.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, coming off a franchise-record 64-point performance on Wednesday, contributed 22 points, eight rebounds, and six assists in his first game since that remarkable feat.

Cade Cunningham scored 25 points for the Pistons, who now share the NBA’s third-longest single-season losing streak. They are on par with the 1995-96 Vancouver Grizzlies, 1997-98 Denver Nuggets, and 2011-12 Charlotte Bobcats, all of whom also lost 23 games in a row.

The record for the longest single-season slide is held by the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers and the 2013-14 Philadelphia 76ers, both enduring 26 straight defeats.

Milwaukee was in control throughout the game, never falling behind. They held a lead of up to 34 points and reached their highest point total of the season, even though they decided to rest Lillard and Antetokounmpo for the entire fourth quarter.
