Kings coach Mike Brown on tough emotions after Bulls comeback win

On Wednesday night, the Sacramento Kings had a win in the bag. They stomped the Chicago Bulls for the first three quarters of the game, amassing a 22-point lead at the height of their dominance in the third. It was an impressive display and one that a middling Kings team needed amidst their recent up-and-down stretch. But they didn’t win.

Instead, the Bulls stormed all the way back throughout the fourth quarter behind a 19-point final frame from DeMar DeRozan. Coby White even finished the night with a career-high 37 points. Chicago stole a win in Sacramento, and the Kings were devestated.

After the game, Kings head coach Mike Brown expressed the disappointment his team was feeling post-game.

“Obviously, everybody’s down because it was a winnable game,” Brown said via ESPN. “Even though we feel like we didn’t play well, we still felt it was a winnable game. We felt like we let this one slip through our fingers, and so it’s tough right now. It’s tough for anybody to swallow this one.”

The Kings may not be too pleased, but this was a huge win for the Bulls.
