Donte makes it three in a row

For those who might be wondering, Donte Greene just finished playing significant minutes in his third game in four days. So, OK he's on assignment with the Reno Bighorns of the NBA Development League, but at least he's playing and getting into better game shape. The Kings' affiliate franchise won a sixth straight victory - 119-114 over the visiting Los Angeles D-Fenders - before a few thousand screaming kids who attended the 11 a.m. tipoff at the Reno Events Center. According to a Bighorns official I spoke with a few minutes ago, Donte had a strong opening half but struggled in the final two quarters. In 29 minutes, the rookie small forward sank 11 of his 17 field-goal attempts, was 0 for 1 at the line, and contributed four rebounds, three assists and three steals. No word yet on how long Geoff Petrie plans to keep him in the D-League, but I wouldn't be surprised if Greene remains with the Bighorns for a few more games. I have been playing phone tag with Petrie, so hopefully, will have an update this evening.
