SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Buddy Hield shook off a sore ankle to score 29 points and the Sacramento Kings beat the short-handed Los Angeles Lakers 123-120 on Wednesday night.
Hield's status for the game was in doubt because of a sprained right ankle, but he decided to play through it and helped the Kings win for just the second time in the past 12 games.
"We've been in a bad funk," Hield said. "If I'm hurt, I can play through that. I don't like taking games off and I hate losing."
