Oh, a Kyle Draper game. Joy.
I really do not care for Kyle Draper as the play by play announcer.
Yeah, he seems like the worst homer. That’s fine for the color guy (to an extent) but PBP requires some detachment. Mark Jones might be a little bit over-polished in this regard, but he’s a decent fit with Doug.
Grant was fantastic at PBP, too bad he was a giant shitheel
Got a good feeling about this one. Go Kings!
I’m buying Bagley’s 3-pt shot
If he can get to be 35% on 3+ 3PA/gm it should open up some things for everyone
For as much shit as he’s given on here, he’s definitely been getting better with more reps. His defense still makes him a net liability, and he needs to be more reliable scoring on the inside, but he’s made considerable strides in integrating himself as part of the offense rather than a black hole, knocking down the three, and even some highlights on D, too.
It’s when he reverts to black-hole mode that infuriates me…
All he does is focus on his defender like nobody else exists or it’s 1v1
And yes, his D has looked a lot better recently
why his D looked better all in a sudden ?
He’s been getting his hands up, working through screens and taking contact, all things that were missing earlier this year.
Not all of it consistently yet, but at least sometimes
Let’s go Kings!
Looking forward to Bagley’s improved defense, Buddy’s rediscovered long range shooting touch, and Haliburton’s continued ROY-level performance.
And the porous d
I actually see lots of great defense for short spurts. Fox, Hield, Haliburton, Bagley, Joseph, and Holmes have many of those moments. They need to turn those moments into quarters and then those quarters into games though.
I don’t see any improvement
ok then. cool.
Just sayin, we’ve seen this over and over and over again
This is gonna be tough to keep up with these guys, but if we play D, we can do it. Did I say D…yikes!
Anyone else lose the game feed? Screen went out and I have no game!
The key to unlocking Marvin on defense is to put him on opposing best wing….see Vlade was right. He can play small forward ð
I appreciate the notion to bench Beli but Metu can’t keep looking like a scrub out here
The dudes barely played
Just as I said that a couple good moves. Hope that’s a sign of things to come
This seems like an incredibly small lineup
Metu is playing big though
The BBIQ of Hield costed us the GR’s 3
Seriously. No reason the ball was in his hands to start that 10 sec sequence walking the damn ball up court.
only 6 sec left. and Hield just bringing the ball slowly up the court…Grezz
Metu needs to calm down when grabbing the defensive board. Wait a beat then find a guard to pass to
yup…his way too quick pass to Barnes resulted in a turnover..but I think he is a fast learner
When Hali has the ball, be ready for the pass
It’s nice to see us shake off that get blown out in the first quarter thing.
We moved it to the 3rd quarter
Cojo is useless
He’s fine as a backup PG. Overpaid? Sure. But that doesn’t currently matter
I’d rather see Guy get his run…
Enough praise for Paul George Draper!
quite enough of that. On Draper days I do miss peaches.
Funny when Draper said ” we got to talk about Paul George Doug,” and you could tell Doug kind of paused.
Only twice this season have we kept opposing teams under 110 points. I feel like that’s going to stay the same after tonight.
Bagley is the reason we give up so many 3s just sags off or completely botched his assigment
Bagley can’t finish at the rim wide open
His head was almost at the backboard TBF. That pass needed to get there about a quarter second earlier
Fox has never been a good lobber.
He is not Yogi………..
Slow comment thread tonight?
Well, it is a Friday? But… there is a pandemic and everything is closed… soooo yeah I don’t know?
Am I missing something with Bagley? Am I not taking into account time he has missed?
Fox is a terrible finisher at the end of half and quarter…ever notice that?
he did able to get the driving layup…I’ll say sometimes…
Let’s see more Metu and Haliburton in the second half.
In fact, I’d like to see Metu with Holmes and see how they gel together.
and with Hali setting them up
Serge just moved Bagley out the way. ð
Well here comes the 3rd quarter blow out
Walton’s a genius. His two pass maximum offense is beautiful to watch.
Buddy and fox shittin the bed
One too many passes by the Clippers perhaps? Buddy with a quick three. ð
Walton has no energy, no plan and no clue of what he’s doing.
3rd quarter slippage
Way too much overhelp on defenders leading to wide open 3’s for the Clippers.
Good God. You can’t let Reggie freaking Jackson dunk on you. That’s bad.
so how many consecutive games will we give up 120+ points? is there an easy way to look up what the NBA record is?
(edited to 120 – why not make it easier to get the record…)
It would be so cool to have a Kawhi on our team. No matter who is guarding him I think “oh, thats a huge mismatch.”
Until the Kings have the worst defense in the last 25 years. Oh, wait, they already did that.
It would be so cool if the Kings had drafted him instead of Biyombo who they traded for Fredette.
Its hard to pick up the sarcasm. Whoever put that list up the other day of all the stars we passed on made me punch the keyboard.
I think it’s time to turn this shit off
I was just thinking that
Don’t turn it off! Cojo is about to zzzzzz zzzzzzzz zzzzzzzz.
Oh, we may see Bagley in late 4th Qtr garbage time
It looks like the Clips have been manhandling us at 0.5x speed.
Clips making the Kings look like the shit show that they really are.
Screensavers move faster than our offense.
God damn this team needs Myles Turner
Why we were able to win the Clippers last season ?
So do the Pacers.
The Kings can only beat the Clippers in LA for some apparent reason
What is the Kings best defender?
Kennard with an open layup…lol
Good lord Doug hurts.
Cojo! Helping the Clips build that lead!
Fox is not an alpha. He needs direction, he doesn’t give direction. The good things is at this pace we can draft one. Our current crop of players need a good to great coach to succeed. I legitimately think this team would be closer to .500 with a good coach.
Hali get as many shots up as possible
I want to see Parker NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our savior! Who doesn’t get paid for D! A true King, through and trough.
Tank > Timeout
Its pretty frustrating when they are walking off the court smiling down 30.
Why? I’d be smiling too knowing I’m getting paid millions whether I win or lose by 30.
I’ve never made millions a year but it sounds like you were never a competitive athlete.
Even if we get the #1 pick, we will still be shit as long as we have Walton.
Where is Guy ….and Parker ?
Come on man, Cojo needs to get his 28 minutes and 6 points!
I mean just empty the bench at this point. I’m happy if we get a full 4th quarter of Metu
So the Clips didn’t even reach 110 points after 3 quarters.
That’s progress, right?
I’ld like to see Haliburton search for his shot more this next quarter. Passing to an open CoJo are just empty calories.
37 to 16… third quarter.
The slippage is real!
That is great! ….For our draft pick.
Alright let’s go bagley!!!!!
Kings would do better if Bagley cherry-picked.
Vivek probably thinks the same.
BAgley just left his man under the basket…
Morris owns Bagley
who doesn’t lol
you both replied the same answer at the same time, good job…lol
Team Bagley fool!
I just don’t understand why the starters are back into the game ?
Cojo needs a rest.
Bagley uses his athleticism instead of fundamentals. (Zubac dunks on Bagley)
Is this why we needed a player’s coach?
Is Rondo available?
Thought you said player coach not players coach
Tye Lue refuses to empty his bench lol. He’s like nah Luke, you can’t throw in the towel that early.
These collapses are predictable to the point that I don’t see Walton surviving to the trade deadline. Interim HC Alvin Gentry incoming
I want it now.
Or even when we chose Bagley over Joerger
#10: Gimme the tropical fruit look.
Barber: Say no more.
Who cares? I think it looks cool.
Terrific name you have.
Thank you. It comes from life experience.
Born in 86?
Same here. Year of the Tiger!
ACtually I was born January 9th, I was in the cutoff for year of the ox still haha
Oh… well, fuck it. Welcome to most miserable but entertaining blog around.
Getting his numbers. All that matters. 5 year/163m demand incoming
Garbage time is Bagley time! Woohoo!
He would be a G league star…
Well, a shooting star
yes..he looks more active in garbage time
Exciting game! Will LA reach 140 points? Stay tuned!
I wished we lost by 40
Double Double watch for……Metu
No Nemanja sighting even today
That was awful
Too early to fire Walton?
We can tank and lose without Walton!
Wait till next year…again
LOL. Clips didn’t even reach 140. Losers.
That is a victory for our defense.
We did it guys.
I guess the next 2-3 weeks are going to be brutal until Ramsey recovers from his groin strain.
lick your wounds hah
It would be funny if Bagley would keep playing meaningless garbage time minutes and Team Bagley would tweet: Why is Marvin still playing in the 4th quarter?
What a disgrace…
Yeah. With tanking you deliberately put a bad product on the floor and scrape together heartbreaking loss after heartbreaking loss.
We throw our futures of the franchise out there and they lay an egg.
Kayte keeping it real tonight!
She had an illustrious 6 year career in the WNBA
She’s putting Walton under the bus without saying his name.
Luke needed to call his own ass out in the postgame, but of course, he failed to do so.
Doug should get a jersey instead of a mic.
