The Sacramento Kings suffered two big losses Wednesday night.  They squandered a 22-point lead to lose to the Indiana Pacers 106-100, and even worse, their second-leading scorer Rudy Gay suffered a season-ending injury.

Gay was carried off the court with 14.3 seconds left in the third quarter after falling on a drive to the basket.  The Sacramento Kings announced he was diagnosed with a torn left Achilles’ tendon that will sideline him for the rest of the season.

The 30-year-old was averaging 18.7 points and 6.3 rebounds through 30 games and was planning to cash out when he becomes a free agent at the end of this season.

According to the Sacramento Bee, Gay entered the locker room on crutches and with a walking boot on his left foot. He put on his wedding band and received help with his backpack before leaving with his head down.

“That’s hard to watch,” said Kings center DeMarcus Cousins. “That’s a tough thing to watch. It sucks for Rudy. This is a guy with a family, this is a guy with a career he cares deeply about. This was a big year for him obviously and it sucks that this is how it played out.”
