The Sacramento Kings have fired Walton after the team’s disappointing start to the season, ESPN first reported on Sunday. The Sacramento Kings fired coach Luke Walton on Sunday, sources told ESPN. Kings have lost seven of eight games and dropped to 6-11 on season – leaving them 12th in the Western Conference. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) November 21, 2021 Walton’s firing comes a day after a 123-105 home loss to the Utah Jazz that dropped the Kings to 6-11 on the season. Sacramento currently sits at 12th place in the Western Conference. The team has not reached the playoffs since Rick Adelman’s final year as head coach during the 2005-06 campaign. Walton was the 10th head coach of the team since then. Since taking over in 2019, he had a 68-93 record in two-plus seasons as coach, failing to turn Sacramento back into a playoff team. As the Kings again look to the future, ESPN has reported that the team’s associate head coach Alvin Gentry — who is a five-time NBA head…

Family Mourns Teen Isiah Walls Jr In South Sacramento, Urges Hit-And-Run Driver To Come Forward

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) –  It’s been more than a week and still no signs of the driver who hit and killed a teen boy in South Sacramento and took off. A line of candles, balloons and messages to Isiah Walls Jr. now pepper the intersection where the 15-year-old boy was struck. “Because it represents Isaiah. He’s no longer with us in the physical but he’s definitely here in spirit. We spoke with Isiah’s brother Tymothi Pierce and his mother Tangee Pierce as they stood at the very spot where — Friday night, November 12 — Isiah was hit by a car and killed. “I have four children and this is the worst thing that I’ve ever had to go through in my life,” Tangee said. Witnesses told police that Isiah was in the crosswalk crossing against a red light when a driver in a black Mercedes ML300 hit him, throwing Isiah across the intersection. Tymothi says the driver got out of his vehicle and looked at his brother but then took off. We asked the family what they would say to the person responsible. “Just come…

49ers pregame: Elijah Mitchell out at Jaguars, opening door for Jeff Wilson Jr. and Trey Sermon

The 49ers’ rushing leader is out, and the Jacksonville Jaguars’ is in for this morning’s 10 a.m. matchup at TIAA Bank Field. Elijah Mitchell’s finger surgery five days ago made it unlikely that the 49ers’ rookie would suit up today, and that indeed is the case. James Robinson, the Jaguars’ leading rusher, will play, Schefter reported. Robinson entered as questionable because of knee and heel injuries. Expected to replace Mitchell in the lineup is Jeff Wilson Jr., who’d be making his first start of the season and second appearance since returning from May knee surgery. Rookie Trey Sermon figures to back up Wilson for his first potential carries in five games. Sermon started the 49ers’ Weeks 3 and 4 losses to Green Bay and Seattle while Mitchell was out with a shoulder injury. Sermon’s had only two other carries this season aside from those starts. Mitchell played through his second-quarter finger injury Monday night and finished with 27 of the 49ers’ 44 carries in a 31-10 upset of the Los Angeles Rams. How the 49ers replicate that rushing dominance is one of the keys to…

Garoppolo notched his third straight game with a passer rating over 100 after completing 15-of-19 passes for 182 yards and two touchdowns in the 31-10 win over the Rams.

Sharks’ missed chances, injury lead to frustrating start to homestand

SAN JOSE – Yes, the Sharks needed a save on the Washington Capitals’ first shot of the game. And no, it’s not wise to take a penalty and leave Alex Ovechkin open for a one-timer at the top of the circle on the ensuing power play. But the Sharks perhaps could have lived with those miscues had they just taken advantage of their own opportunities to score Saturday night against Ovechkin and company at SAP Center. Instead, the Sharks in the first two periods couldn’t capitalize on a handful of high danger chances at even strength or six minutes of power-play time in what turned into a 4-0 loss to the Capitals before an announced crowd of 16,527. Sharks goalie Adin Hill stopped 11 of 13 shots through the first two periods but couldn’t stop the first shot he faced Saturday. Conor Sheary took a pass on a Capitals rush from Daniel Sprong and beat Hill at the 2:17 mark of the first period for a 1-0 Washington lead. Washington then took a two-goal lead on a power-play goal by Ovechkin at the 13:58 mark.…

Sharks’ Dahlen suffers first period injury vs. Washington Capitals

SAN JOSE – Sharks winger Jonathan Dahlen was injured in the first period of Saturday’s game with the Washington Capitals at SAP Center. Dahlen came back to start the second period and skated for two shifts before he went back into the Sharks’ dressing room. The Sharks announced later in the period that Dahlen would not return to the game. Dahlen was trying to control the puck behind the Capitals’ net when he was bumped by Washington defenseman John Carlson. Just a second later, Dahlen clutched his left shoulder and then grabbed onto the back of the Washington net with his right hand for support. With the play having moved up the ice, Dahlen then headed straight to the Sharks’ bench and retreated to the team’s dressing room. Play was blown dead with 6:39 left in the period. Dahlen, a rookie, came into Saturday with nine points in 15 games and has been on the Sharks’ top line with Logan Couture since the start of training camp in September. Dahlen’s also been a fixture on the Sharks’ power play and is averaging 14:38 of ice…
