Hill Sits Down the Stretch in Loss to Bucks; Tweets Angry Emoji

George Hill is angry. At least that what his Twitter account implies. Following the Sacramento Kings' 109-104 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday evening, the 10-year NBA veteran turned to the social media platform to express himself.

Hill is off to a rough start on the season. After signing a three-year $57 million deal with Sacramento during the offseason, he's posting just 9.1 points and 2.5 assists in 26 minutes per game.

The 31-year-old guard is shooting 44.7 percent from the field and 44.9 percent from behind the arc, but he's shooting five less shots per game over his last season numbers with the Utah Jazz.

Against Milwaukee, Hill scored six points on 1-of-2 shooting in 18 minutes and was part of the starting unit that was pulled after just three minutes of action in the first quarter. The second unit brought the Kings back before the half, scoring the team's first 29 points, which ties an NBA record Sacramento set earlier this season.

Hill rebounded in the the third quarter, but he, along with fifth overall pick De'Aaron Fox, sat during the fourth quarter as 2017 second round pick Frank Mason III led the Kings on a late charge.

The Kings boarded a plane for Sacramento following the loss in Milwaukee. They'll take Sunday off before returning to the practice floor on Monday.
