The visiting Sacramento Kings, who trailed the Chicago Bulls 79-44 with 8:50 left in the third quarter, pulled off the second-largest comeback in NBA history by outscoring the Bulls 58-18 the rest of the way and winning, 102-98.

Ending the third with a 19-5 run, Ime Udoka and Tyreke Evans then took over the fourth quarter for the Kings, who are currently in 10th place in the Western Conference. (Granted, the season is young). The Kings have already won only four less games than they did all of last season, when they finished with the worst record in franchise history.

The Kings' 35-point comeback last night was second only to a 36-point comeback the Utah Jazz made against the Denver Nuggets back in 1996, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

At least this should save Reinsdorf the usual tradition of firing his coach on X-Mas Eve, as I can't see him lasting that deep into the week off of this.

My friend bugged me to watch Tyreke Evans, and after 1 quarter of blowout (which didn't seem to be Evans fault, and did often seem to be Nocioni's), I moved on to other things. Only flipped back when twitter started lighting up with messages about the massive collapse, but couldn't stand to closely watch it.

This year's Bulls team goes thru more arctic cold stretches on offense than any I can remember. Just a team load of people who all start missing at the same time. It's a lot more a roster construction issue than Vinny - they didn't adequately replace Gordon because they thought Salmons (and Pargo!) would be able to cover and they wanted to create more room for next offseason - but a better coach would've found someway of making sure this doesn't happen.

Firing Vinny and signing another coach doesn't take up salary cap room, but the Bulls management will treat it as if it does. The only change coming is Tyrus Thomas returning this weekend, and then Tyrus Thomas getting traded in a couple weeks for a scorer.

Lakers at Blazers, April 20. Hmmmmmm. If Kobe really WAS the next coming of MJ, I'd figure him for, say, 64 points. For Kobe, I figure 42 on 14-37 shooting, and a missed three-pointer at the buzzer.
