It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over

I bet the Chicago Bulls thought they had last night's game against the Sacramento Kings all sewn up.  After all, they led 79-44 just three minutes into the third quarter (and then 83-50 two minutes later).  Lock it up, close it down.  Have a good night, everybody!

The final score:  Kings 102, Bulls 98.

Say what?

Putting it plainly, the Kings were outscored 83-50 in the first 29 minutes before outscoring Chicago 52-15 over the final 19 minutes.  They finished in particularly awesome fashion, dominating the Bulls 33-10 in the fourth quarter.

Tyreke Evans scored the final nine points to clinch the win and insert himself deservingly into the "finest rookies in the NBA discussion."  It wasn't quite Tracy McGrady vs. the Spurs, but it's still good enough for me.
