Sports
  • The Kings beat the Brooklyn Nets last night 101-96. The 42nd win of the season secures the team’s first winning record since the 2005-06 campaign. (ESPN)
  • Shred the gnar. Check out these three dudes who surfed the American River after recent storms. The experienced surfers said this is the first time in five years that water levels have been high enough for them to bomb some rad swells — with safety in mind, of course. (Sac Bee)
Biz
  • Get in loser, we’re going shopping. Natomas’s former Barnes and Noble will become a Nordstrom Rack this fall. The 26,000-sqft space has been vacant since January. (Natomas Buzz)
Eat

Finance
  • A cash back card so good, even the experts had to have it. (Hint: Features include up to 5% cash back, a big sign-up bonus, and no annual fee.) See what it is.*
Number
  • $241. That’s the real price of a roundtrip ticket from Boston to Barcelona sold this year via Going — a travel membership that alerts you when flight prices drop. Sign up for a free membership or try an Elite membership for free if you’re interested in business and first class tickets, too.
