Even a walk through town is beautiful because of the different architecture styles. I never get tired of the view around me.

2. A Plethora of Places

Down one with :12 seconds left in the game, the Sacramento Kings put the ball in the hands of Rudy Gay on the wing and got out of his way. Gay worked the isolation against Solomon Hill (who did a nice job) and ended up taking a contested 15-foot jumper that he missed.
