DeMarcus Cousins joins in on ‘the wave’ in Sacramento (VIDEO)

Feb 10, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

It was a big night in Sacramento for the Kings on Saturday, though it had little to do with the game being played against the visiting Utah Jazz.

Fans in Sacramento organized a “Here We Buy” night to show support for the franchise, as the city works to keep the Kings in town after the current owners have a tentative deal in place to sell the team to a group that would relocate it to Seattle.

The Kings came through with a 120-109 victory, and it sounds as though the fans came through, as well.

From Tom Ziller of Sactown Royalty:

But the damned crowd. 16,000 strong for a 17-win team in a seventh straight losing season with owners that just tried to sell us out after a history over the past two years of trying to sell us out. And those 16,000 people — you people — were loud. So loud. It blared through the TV. Constantly. It’s like the chants built to a crescendo. It was wild.

DeMarcus Cousins joined in on the fun late in the fourth quarter, being a part of “the wave” cheer that was going around the arena in celebration.

    That’s great to see, actually. Moments like these endear the NBA and its players to fans.

    Great to see the fans doing what they can, and great to see DeMarcus focused on something other than complaining.
