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.

I think the reality of what Barnes is does bother me too much.

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.

if Keegan doesn’t score, he doesn’t bring much else to the team. Maybe we should’ve left him as a reserve. Playing heavy minutes vs. starters and he looks lost.

Millerscornrows has every right to be negative. 16 years cannot be erased In seven games.

KanGZ fans have been too soft with this team.

Sure. People are complaining if they want, just like people are complaining about the complaining. Seems that everyone’s saying exactly what they want to say.

Who’s got a right to anything. It’s a game. One game never is never that important unless it’s towards the end of the season. One bad game no matter how many bad games we’ve all seen means little. If you think the sky is falling go ahead and put your bicycle helmet on and if you survive more power to you. We’ve had a great little run, the team looks better but we are gonna lose some games…..we were always gonna lose some games. Likely over the course of the season we are gonna lose a bunch of games. It doesn’t mean that if we lose this game all is lost. Perspective. If we manage to pull out a win it doesn’t mean that for most of the game the Kings played well. It’s never all good or all bad.

Fox needs to find a way to contribute while his shot isn’t falling.

That isn’t his game unfortunately. He is a scoring guard not a facilitator.

Didn’t expect them to win both of these games vs quality teams on a b2b but they’ve done just enough to give them a shot in the 4th which is all you can ask for. Need a Fox takeover and to keep that defensive pressure going

Damn that hurts. 2 chances to cut it to 4 and they miss and then Atlanta buries a 3 to go back up 10 right after

Just checking in. I’m really impressed with all of you that are able to comment on back-to-back games. At my age, I often have to sit out the second game of a back-to-back.

The turnovers and front rim shots are a sign of a tired team. Impressed with how close they’re staying in this game, all things taken into consideration.

That’s probably the dagger there by Trae. Loved their fight in the 2nd half to give them a real shot but they look like they’re out of gas
