In-game blog: Kings vs. Nets (Kings win 109-96)

The Kings made sure they weren't the first team to fall to the winless Nets with a 109-96 win at Arco Arena.

Tyreke Evans and Beno Udrih had 21 points each for the Kings (7-8). Omri Casspi had a career-high 18 points and five assists.

Devin Harris led the Nets (0-16) with 25 points.

The next thing to do will be to get an update on Spencer Hawes. He left the game in the third quarter with a knee injury and did not return. He sat on the bench with ice on his right knee in the fourth quarter.

It's not a good sign when the starting power forward and center are sharing time on exercise bikes and not the court.

Jason Thompson and Spencer Hawes each had their own bikes in the tunnel leading to the floor during the third quarter as the kings took an 84-69 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Hawes was limping a bit while Thompson didn't appear to be hampered as much. Having neither meant the Kings had to go with Kenny Thomas, Sean May and Jon Brockman against Nets center Brook Lopez.

The Kings are still cruising and lead 59-42 at halftime.

Spencer Hawes is still playing well with 16 points and eight rebounds. Tyreke Evans has 14 points and Omri Casspi has contributed 10 points off the bench.

The Kings are shooting 58.5 percent and have 16 fast break points.

Chris Douglas-Roberts leads the Nets with 15 points.

--Jason Jones

Spencer Hawes ended the first quarter with dunk that had the crowd going and the Kings lead the New Jersey Nets, 33-20 after the first quarter.

Hawes and Tyreke Evans each have 10 points as the offense is coming easy for the Kings. Sacramento has made 60 percent of its shots while the Nets are at 38.1 percent.

The scariest moment of the half came when Kings forward Jason Thompson took a hard fall after being fouled by Brook Lopez on an attempted dunk. Lopez was assessed a flagrant foul and Thompson appears to be fine.
