I’ve lived a majority of the last decade in the DC area and John Wall has always held a special place in my heart. One of those advanced stats anti-darlings like DeRozan or Butler who’s always been a walking bucket.

He’s been through a lot in his life in the past few years and I’m happy to see him still carving out a role in the league.

I always felt like prime Wall was what we wanted out of Fox. I think that’s a bit too low of a ceiling at this point, but it more or less stands

Anytime we used to play a middling NBA team, you’d essentially have to hope for the Kings to have an above average game, and the opponents to get caught napping for us to snag wins.

These days, the Kings are coming to play at a high level. No more praying for upsets. This team is one you need to be ready for (and teams missing stars need not apply).

Indeed. Not needing Star Fox on a nightly basis is a good thing. As long as he can still bring it when needed, I’m good with letting him step aside.

Wanna see a little 13-2 third quarter run by the Kings and put this one away. Clips without 4 of their starters/rotation players. Save our starters for tomorrow. I like the Clippers announcers on the stream. Don’t over talk and very complimentary towards the Kings. I saw we’ve allow 110+ points in 66 consecutive games. Would like to break that streak.

Was just typing that. It’d be nice to see Fox step up. Is he good enough to just turn it on and off as needed? 9 pts is pretty pathetic.

Brown made sure to get the starters back in with the hopes of them squashing this run and putting the game away quickly. Lead back up to 25 just like that. Would be nice to be able to rest them for the last half of the 4th with them playing another game tomorrow

I had to play it back to be sure, but after Keegan hesitated on that last 3 the first time, you can see Delly motion and you can just hear the words, “put it up!”, right before Keegan does in fact put it up and nail the three.

Love to see all the coaching going on – both off the floor, and on it.
