Not even a year removed from Kentucky, De’Aaron Fox is making an impact at the next level. Sacramento got a great one in Fox, because he’s never afraid of the big moments in games.
Thursday night Fox and the Kings found themselves down 2 points to the Brooklyn Nets with the ball in hand. What you might expect is exactly what happened. Fox threw the ball inbound to another former Wildcat, Willie Cauley-Stein and got it back for a drive at the rim. His layup went in. The Kings were going to OT.
In overtime the Kings would go on to win 116-111 vs. the Nets, but again the win would not have happened had Fox not grabbed a rebound with 17 seconds to go.
