De’Aaron Fox’s return sparks Kings’ victory over Cavs

AP – De’Aaron Fox had 28 points and six assists in his return after missing two weeks with an ankle injury, and the Sacramento Kings gave coach Mike Brown his 400th career victory with a 132-120 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers yesterday.

Fox made an immediate impact in his first game back, scoring the first points of the night on a driving layup 11 seconds into the game. A first-time All-Star last season, Fox later scored on a reverse and sank a three-pointer to help the Kings to a 33-25 lead.

Fox came out strong again in the second quarter, then went cold late before giving Sacramento’s offence another spark in the third quarter. He had eight points, including an emphatic one-handed dunk off a bounce pass in the key from Malik Monk.
