Backcourt springs to life down stretch
LOS ANGELES - Erik Daniels was no different than the other 19,816 fans inside the vibrating Staples Center.
On his feet, flanked by his Kings teammates on the no-sitting bench, hooting and hollering with every eye-popping play.
"That was amazing," Daniels said. "They can turn it on at any point in the game. They were going unconscious."
Consider that the team motto for this one. The comatose Kings, who could hardly complete a pass through three quarters, found a new state of mind just in time to concoct a cold-blooded 111-107 comeback on the Los Angeles Clippers in overtime.
Forward Kenny Thomas was the reason in the extra period, hitting two of three jump shots while guard Mike Bibby hit two shots of his own.
