Big game from Ogilvy gets Kings home over 36ers
SYDNEY Kings big man AJ Ogilvy came up with an incredible eight blocks to help his team down a determined Adelaide 36ers 105-93 at home yesterday.
The victory extended the Kings' winning streak to four and consolidated fourth place on the ladder.
Ogilvy had an enthralling battle with Adelaide big man Daniel Johnson who finished with a game-high 28 points and eight rebounds.
