The Sacramento Kings left the Sleep Train Arena after 28 years of plying their trade at the ageing home.
They managed to go out on a high note by beating a full-strength Oklahoma City Thunder - complete with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook - in front of a raucous sell-out crowd.
Next season, the team will move to the $519 million Golden 1 Center, which is located in downtown Sacramento.

The Kings managed to score the victory without their star point guard Rajon Rondo and role player Seth Curry started to look more and more like his MVP brother, Stephen, with a career-high six three-point bombs.
The 25-year-old insisted the Kings were properly motivated to put on one last good show in their long-time home.
"These are some of the best fans in the NBA and we knew how bad they wanted a win," said Curry. "It was something we wanted to do for the fans."
Darren Collison led the way for the Kings with a season-high 27 points and he suggested the energy of the crowd led the Kings to a memorable victory, even if it ultimately means very little at this stage of the campaign.
"It was fun. The crowd was amazing the whole night; they were on their feet pretty much the whole entire game," Collison said. "I remember growing up in LA. I knew how tough Sacramento was because of the fans. They've always had a good fan base. I'm sure this win means more to them than it means to us."
DeMarcus Cousins also returned to the fold after missing Sacramento's loss to the Timberwolves on Friday night and he knocked down 15 points on his last appearance at the Sleep Train Arena.
