Any time Davion can spend on the court is good for the Kings, especially early. He turns it on in the second half, and the more he plays now, the better it’ll be, I think.

Kayte is smart in my opinion. She is forced down to the level of her partners too often.

I had no expectation for the Kings to win a back to back on the road against this Hawks team.

But the longer I watch, the more I think the Kings are going to smooth it out and cruise past them. This seems like a very inconsistent and disjointed young team.
