That haul is enough to land it the second-best opening weekend of the year behind just Disney’s “Captain Marvel” ($153 million). The psychological thriller about a family confronted by a […]

Hield Sets Franchise Season Record For 3s, Kings Beat Suns

SACRAMENTO (AP) — Buddy Hield wasn’t even supposed to be in Sacramento’s lineup at the beginning of the season. Now he’s one of the top 3-point shooters in the NBA, with a spot in the Kings’ record book, as well.

Hield had 25 points and set the franchise season record for 3-pointers, and Sacramento beat the Phoenix Suns 112-103 on Saturday night.

Hield made 7 of 14 from beyond the arc, giving him 245 3-pointers this season. That surpassed the mark of 240 set by Peja Stojakovic in 2003-04 — Stojakovic is now an assistant general manager with Sacramento.

“It feels good,” said Hield, whose 43-percent 3-point clip ranks eighth in the NBA. “My teammates found me in good spots. Some ones I had I wish I could get back but it’s a part of the game. It was fun, man. Peja’s been a big part of my success this year.”

Hield’s record-setting game came five nights after he went 0 for 8 from the perimeter. Hield came back with seven 3s against Dallas on Thursday and matched that against Phoenix.

“He’s having a terrific year,” Kings coach Dave Joerger said. “A large part of our success has been his ability at different points in games where we’re struggling to score, he can go create his own offense. Couldn’t be happier for him.”

The Kings made 17 3s overall. Harrison Barnes scored seven of his 25 points over the final three minutes, Nemanja Bjelica had 13 points and 17 rebounds, and De’Aaron Fox added 13 points and nine assists for Sacramento. Marvin Bagley III put up 16 points and 11 rebounds.

Devin Booker scored 32 points and Deandre Ayton had 19 points and 11 rebounds for Phoenix.

The Suns led early after a 19-0 run in the first quarter but couldn’t hold on.

“We’ve just got to sustain that lead and not get complacent,” Booker said. “When you have a 15-point lead, build on it. We didn’t do that tonight.”

The Kings (36-36) maintained their slim playoff hopes and pulled within 5 ½ games of eighth-place San Antonio in the West. Sacramento has won three of four against Phoenix this season.

The Suns (17-57) trailed most of the game but pulled within 96-95 following two free throws by Troy Daniels. The Kings answered with two free throws and pulled away behind Barnes.

Acquired from Dallas before the deadline, Barnes scored on a driving layup and later made a 3-pointer. After Hield scored on a layup, Phoenix scored twice before Barnes’ emphatic dunk made it 107-101.

Barnes later had an assist on Bagley’s three-point play as Sacramento closed on a 12-6 run.

Phoenix was without Kelly Oubre Jr. (left thumb sprain), Josh Jackson (right ankle sprain) and Tyler Johnson (sore right knee). T.J. Warren also missed his 25th straight game with right ankle soreness, leaving coach Igor Kokoskov with a depleted bench.

The short-handed Suns still got off to a fast start. Booker scored on a three-point play and a layup as part of a 19-0 run in the first quarter, flexing toward the crowd each time. Booker made back-to-back 3s then fed Ayton for a dunk.

Hield helped Sacramento get back into the game with his perimeter shooting. He made three 3s in the second quarter, including the record-setting shot.

TIP-INS

Suns: Ayton’s double-double is his 37th this season, tying Alvan Adams’ franchise rookie record set in 1975-76.

Kings: Harry Giles was held out because of a left thigh contusion.

BACK IN THE NBA

Jimmer Fredette played four minutes and was 0-for-1 shooting for Phoenix in his return to the NBA after spending the past three seasons playing in the Chinese Basketball Association. Fredette was the 10th overall pick in the 2011 draft and played for four teams over five seasons.

“I was just excited to get back out there and try to help the team in any way that I can,” Fredette said. “It’s the end of the season, but it’s my job to come in and try to keep these guys positive. Be that veteran guy, be aggressive, and do what I do out on the floor.”

Suns: Play at Utah on Monday.

Kings: Play the Lakers in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Officer Ted Is Quacking Oakdale Up

OAKDALE (CBS13) — A duck in Oakdale has become quite the celebrity after forming an unlikely bond with a family and then a police officer.

He showed up at an Oakdale family’s home in November and never left.

Lydia Fields is Ted’s mom, “We just made him comfortable and he just decided to stay. People said he needed a pool so I borrowed a pool from the neighbor.”

But what made ted a star isn’t that he’s become an unlikely pet.

“Ted approached me in my vehicle.  I was on scene for about 30-40 minutes,” says Officer Chelsie Stillwell of the Oakdale Police Department.

It’s that he escaped through this gate and took an interest in Officer Stillwell

“I noticed if I walked to a certain area, Ted would follow me,” she says.

Unsure what to do, Ted became an officer for the day.

Officer Stillwell says, “I picked him up and put him in the backseat of my patrol car and made a couple of phone calls. He went on two calls for service with me.”

Once he was reunited with his family, Officer Stillwell couldn’t just say goodbye. She now visits him frequently.

“I noticed every time I come over here I’m usually in my uniform and he remembers me.  He approaches me right away. Always acknowledges me,” notes Officer Stillwell.

He’s pretty smart and with hundreds of followers on his Instagram page, people are getting to follow along with Ted’s adventures. Just click here for his account.

Saturday Night’s Winning Powerball Numbers

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Lottery officials say the Powerball jackpot has ballooned to $750 million after no ticket matched all six numbers in the most recent drawing.

The numbers drawn Saturday night are 24, 25, 52, 60 and 66, with a Powerball of 5.

The next drawing for what would be the fourth-largest jackpot in U.S. history is Wednesday. The odds of winning are roughly 1 in 292.2 million.

No one has won the Powerball jackpot since the day after Christmas. Twenty-four drawings since then have failed to produce a winner.

The buyers of three tickets shared the country’s largest jackpot. It was a nearly $1.59 billion Powerball prize drawn on Jan. 13, 2016. A South Carolina purchaser won a $1.54 billion Mega Millions jackpot. That was the nation’s second-largest lottery prize ever.
