Evans, Casspi come up big in close win over Wizards

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (NBA.com exclusive) -- Tyreke Evans stuck his hand out for the nation, and made quite the introduction.

Playing in his first nationally televised game, the rookie stood toe to toe with Gilbert Arenas, protecting a one-point lead in the game's final seconds. As one of the league's most elite point guards made his move towards a possible game-winning basket, Evans simply stuck out his hand and poked the ball away.

The defensive stand sealed a Kings 112-109 victory in front of 16,579 fans in Sacramento on Wednesday night.

Evans, who led the Kings with 26 points, said he was sitting on Arenas' crossover on the final play.

"He kept going straight by at the end of the game and I knew he wanted to get to [the crossover]," Evans said. "He went between the legs and crossed back over and I got a hand in there."

Evans was fouled after poking the ball away from Arenas, and made both free throws to give Sacramento the three-point advantage. Washington's Caron Butler got a look in the final seconds but missed from deep behind the 3-point line.

"That's what I dream of in those types of situations," Evans said. "Get the ball at the end and ice the game. I got the ball and made the free throws."

It was the first time the Kings played on national television since 2007, resulting in the highest attendance of the season since the team sold out its home opener.

"I had attention before," Evans said. "But now that we had a national game, a lot of people got to see what I can do.

"That was a big game for me. "

Playing on national TV wasn't as big of a deal for Omri Casspi. The other Kings' rookie is already used to playing on the international stage.

The first Israeli player in the NBA made his first career start on Wednesday and scored 22 points in the Kings' victory.

"Every game is live in Israeli so for me every game is important, that's why I was not nervous before the game," Casspi said.

Maybe not nervous, but the 21-year-old said he was excited about starting for the first time.

"First time in a career, you dream about things like that," Casspi said. "I knew I had to come focused and mentally strong."

It was Casspi's 3-pointer that found the bottom of the net late in the third quarter and brought Sacramento's rowdy crowd to a frenzy and tied the game at 76-76. Casspi's game-tying shot bounced around the rim before rolling in, as Casspi howled to the home crowd, pounding his chest.

The home arena roared back, louder than it has all season.

"It was so loud I couldn't hear myself scream," Casspi said. "The crowd was fantastic."

Sacramento's court shook again two possessions later when Andres Noccioni converted a 4-point play to give the Kings the lead. The Kings closed out the period on a 13-4 run to close the quarter with an 89-80 advantage. The Kings maintained a secure lead until late in the fourth quarter.

Evans' breakaway dunk gave the Kings an 11-point lead with four minutes remaining, but Washington rallied and trailed by just one point after Ime Udoka's turnover on an inbound pass turned into a Butler breakaway dunk.

Beno Udrih hit just one of two free throws, giving Washington one last shot, trailing by two points with 17 seconds remaining.

On the ensuing inbound, Evans was called for a foul off the ball on Arenas, leading to a free throw and the ball and setting up the final matchup between Evans and Arenas.

"I was pretty mad they called the foul so I wanted the ball back," Evans said. "I told coach to let me get him again."

Customarily a starter, Kings big man Spencer Hawes did not start and didn't play until the third quarter. When he did play, he made an immediate impact with toughness on the boards and strong inside offense -- including a powering fourth quarter dunk.

Westphal said the change to Casspi over Hawes was based on matchups against the quicker Antawn Jamison.

"We went with a different strategy and what, held him to 30?" Westphal joked.

Jamison scored 30 points on 11-of-22 shooting -- including 0-of-6 from 3-point land -- and grabbed eight rebounds.

Despite the final letdown, Arenas was impressive, scoring a game-high 33 points, adding six assists and six rebounds.

"We knew we'd have to score to beat them the way Arenas and Jamison were playing," Westphal said.

The Kings scored over the century mark for the 18th time in the last 21 games.

The Kings are off on Thursday before finishing a road back-to-back against Minnesota and Milwaukee as part of a four-game stretch in five games. The Wizards travel to play Golden State on Friday.
