A bad game for Sean Chen

Sean Chen committed three turnovers in 8 minutes and failed to score today in the Kings' 92-74 win over the visiting Golden State Warriors. Stats: 0 points(No field goal attempt), 0 rebounds, three TOs and 1 personal foul.

Chen replaced Bobby Jackson with 2:21 left in the third quarter and had the first turnover when his bad pass was stolen by Warrior F/G Mike Dunleavy. He started the fourth quarter but was called for traveling and backcourt violation within 90 seconds before leaving, replaced by David Webber, the younger brother of Kings' star forward Chris Webber.

Chen went back again when he replaced Gerald Wallace with 2:37 left in the game, when the outcome was pretty much decided. But he didn't do much before the final buzzer.

This the first pre-season home game for Sacramento. The Kings learned before the game they will lost PG Mike Bibby for 6-8 weeks due to stress fracture. They will try looking for someone to fill in for Bibby and is expected to have a second cut before the end of the week.
