After a turbulent road swing, Sacramento bounced back in strong fashion by logging its third straight home victory by edging out the Portland Trail Blazers 86-82.

In the triumph, Willie Cauley-Stein played a big role, logging a team-high 22 points and 10 rebounds, with 13 of his points coming in the fourth quarter alone.

Kings veterans also played a notable part in the win, with George Hill and Garrett Temple adding 14 points apiece and Kosta Koufos logging a solid all-around performance with 10 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and three steals.

Aside from the action on the court, there was plenty to behold throughout Golden 1 Center with the festivities of Social Media Night taking place over the course of the night.

One of the internet’s most beloved mini-pigs MyBestFriendHank took the Twitter reigns and had plenty of fun in the process.


Not to mention a certain dance sensation making his mark in Sactown.


We wouldn’t want to be up against @thebackpackkid in any kind of dance competition
