With just under eight minutes to go in their Sunday afternoon showcase against the Kings, the Clippers were sitting pretty on an 18-point lead. But things went utterly awry from there as Sacramento staged a furious rally to eke out a 98-97 victory.

Buddy Hield had a key sequence in the clutch with the Kings trailing 96-87 at the two-and-half-minute mark of the fourth where he knocked down an open three from the elbow to cut the lead to six.

He followed that up with a steal on the ensuing inbound play and immediately drained a corner three to complete a stunning six-point swing. He finished with 15 points, seven rebounds, and two assists.
