Honeycutt came on strong in the second half, showing phenomenal athleticism on several dunks, great court vision with a fancy no-look alley-oop pass, and quickness of the defensive end. The 35th overall pick registered 14 points (7-14 FG), 10 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and a steal. One of the game’s best highlights came when he stole the ball, ran coast-to-coast, and finished a fastbreak with a one-handed slam off a lob from soon-to-be Kings teammate Fredette.
With three skilled and increasingly popular rookies joining one of the most exciting young rosters in the league, Power Balance Pavilion will be rocking all season long (if and when there is one), and the Kings could end up being one of the NBA's surprise teams.
