The reason LA is up is literally just a few little differences. Plus Kawhi has shown why he’s a top 10 player when he’s at his best.

20 to 6 Paint Points Sac. 11 to 3 FT’s LA. 7 to 5 Points off TOV’s Sac. Both teams have hit 5 3’s.

Spectacular 1st qtr of basketball if you ask me. ESPN should have this game on the national slate.

Smart move by Monk to get to the line. Too many times this team settles for outside shots instead of working it inside to get a better shot 15 feet in. Smart teams have taken advantage of this and trying to encourage them to shoot more from 3 than 2. Kings can’t take that bait.

If I were Ty Lue, I wouldn’t be that happy RN. The Clippers are scoring the ball well, the Kings aren’t doing it all that effectively, they’ve gotten a happier whistle and they are up 6.

But….that doesn’t mean the Kings will continue this up either.

The Kings really need HB and De’Aaron to get going. HB hasn’t scored and only taken 1 shot. Upside is Keegan is 4-6 from 9 points already.

Kings gonna be tested in the 2nd half with Domas likely playing only the first couple minutes of the 3rd and then won’t be seen again until a few minutes into the 4th. Metu or perhaps more Lyles at the 5 is what we’re looking at.
