I’m OK with Matt Barnes as a color person. Just wondering why he’s not on the road. Is he on parole?

Yep. Kings can’t shoot the 3 ball at all, have smoked a few point blank bunnies at the rim, and had 10 turnovers in the 1st quarter. The fact they aren’t down 20+ right now is encouraging, but they’re playing catch up for a 2nd straight game against a quality opponent. Can’t keep digging themselves into a hole vs teams like this, especially on the road

What really distinguishes Tatum from Brown? They both have great size, shooting, defense, etc.

Maybe Tatum is a better passer, but Brown I’d say is a purer scorer. Yet Tatum is talked about like one of the best in the league and Brown is always seen as the Robin to his Batman? I don’t really get it.

If Brown is feeling underappreciated, maybe he’d feel better in Sacramento?

I can’t believe we are over 50 for the half already with the refs setting the tone early that the Kings shouldn’t even try. I new the Beam Bench would be key to making this a game.

Yeah, Brown went 11 deep in the first half. He just kept rotating players out until he found a good combination. Still, what a strange first half.

I hope he does. What I like most about coach is keeping these guys on a short string. If they aren’t contributing, to the bench you go. In years past, they would let cold shooters try and shoot their way out of it, which mostly resulted in big losses.
