Kings vs. Hornets Preview: Fox vs. Ball 2.0?

One of the most exciting teams in the league, with a star second-year passing wizard and a forward trying to break through to the All-Star conversation, plays in Sacramento tonight! Oh and the Hornets are there too!
By | 190 Comments | Nov 5, 2021

After an incredibly hot start to the ’21-22 season, the Charlotte Hornets have dropped three of their last four and are looking to regain their sweet-as-honey style of play as soon as possible. Do they score a ton of points? Hell yeah. Do they give up a ton of points? HELLLL YEAAAAAH. The Kings have a chance to beat a truly good team at home and further move themselves away from conversations about a disappointing start to the season. It’s going to take 48 minutes of good basketball tonight, baby!

Let’s talk Kings basketball!

When: Friday, November 5th, 7:00 PM PST

Where: Golden 1 Center, Sacramento, CA

TV: NBCSCA – Kyle Draper (play-by-play)

RadioKHTK Sports 1140 AM

For Your Consideration

Ball That You’ve Got: I’ve spent a few minutes here trying to think of a way to accurately describe the Hornets in metaphor and found myself struggling for words. They’re sort-of the mullet of the NBA: taking care of their business up front on the offensive side of things, and well, a bit of a party for their opponents on the other end of the court. The Hornets have pulled of something very special to start this season by being the #1 team in the NBA in points per game scoring at 114.7, while also being #30 in the league in opponents scoring at 114.9 points a contest and I’ve got to say, I dig it! Led in scoring by Jerry Reynolds’ favorite Miles Bridges at over 24.1 points per game and spearheaded by passing wizard and fashion icon Lamelo Ball going for 19.4 points, 6.3 assists, 6.0 rebounds and 1.9 steals a game, the Hornets are flashy, they play fast and they’re a hell of a lot of fun.

They’re also completely fallible. Ball and emerging big guy and Kings killer, PJ Washington, are a bit banged up and I’d expect at least one of them to miss the game today (most likely the latter). Outside of the human element, the Hornets are first in the league in shot attempts and first in the league in three point percentage at 39.6% and while in the previous few years, you could nearly rubber stamp the Kings to give up season highs in those categories just strictly based on them existing, the Kings have done a really decent job of defending behind the arc this year! Sure, they give up a metric ton of points in the paint and yes, a guy like Miles Bridges is going to get at least a couple of highlight dunks off of this tonight, but the Kings allow the sixth lowest three point percentage in the league so far this season on just about the league average amount of attempts. If they can continue to strangle a huge source of points for a run-and-gun team like the Hornets, they’ll be in business early in this game. Another factor in this game will be the turnover battle: the Kings are the best team in the league at taking care of the rock, turning it over under 13 times per game. The Hornets being 6th in the league in steals sets up a nice little indicator of how this game could go. If the Kings play loose on one end and get sloppy on the other, this game could get out of hand quick. If they stick to what has been working on defense early this season for them and continue to value possessions? This might be an incredibly fun game to watch.

The Hornets have a high octane offense and screen-door-on-a-submarine level defense. They’re deep, well coached and motivated early this season. If the Kings can pull another win tonight, I might just start sprinkling in some play-in/playoffs hopes early, early in the season.

Prediction

The game lives up to the fan hype and comes down to the final possession. Haliburton comes off of a Holmes screen and hits the game winner.

Kings: 114.9, Hornets, 114.7

Early buzz on the Hornets was loud,
But will they fall back to the crowd?
Now they’re on a long trip,
Have to hope they will slip.
Win streaks for the Kings are allowed!

Absolutely digging the decimals on the prediction. These big time betting “geniuses” are too chickenshit to predict a score down to a tenth of a point.

NBA felt bad for Fox and decided to issue him fractions of points just for trying to shoot FTs.

I didn’t think there was a chance in hell that Ball would shoot even at the league average, but unless there’s such a thing as a full-season fluke, his shot appears to be real. Ty & Davion will sort his hash.

Going into every game I have two thoughts:

(1) I am really looking forward to watching the game!

and

(2) Man, I would really, really, really be looking forward to watching the game if the Kings had a different head coach!

Let’s go Holmes, grab some Rese’s pieces and have ourselves a Night-Off!

This is a weird score. But Will guessed a few scores last season perfectly, so I wouldn’t rule it out.

Kings: 114.9, Hornets, 114.7

If the Kings play with the same 48 minutes of energy they showed on Wednesday they should win this.

I’m waiting for a game when they go deeper into the bench. Might see Marvin tonight, although I’d see Metu.

Table per 100 possessions for the Kings. I was trying to show the table here instead of typing it all out…but alas it’s not meant to be!

Yes, I get B-Ref is probably not as effective as NBA.com.

I wouldn’t take too much stock in B-Refs O/DRtg’s for anyone good or bad. The only guy that really looks good on both scales is Holmes….and if you notice there is no wide margins in NBA.com’s scale as there is with B-Ref. I’m sorry, but there’s nobody with a +34 differential in O vs D Rtg’s in real life. That requires adjustments that make sense. And I love Richaun Holmes!

I just can’t explain how NBA.com and B-Ref calculate it without seeing the formula’s for each. I don’t know where to find them, but I know statheads don’t trust B-Ref’s numbers as much as they do NBA.com because of the adjustments made in the NBA formula.

FWIW.

Yeah, DRtg generally measures the team, not the player, at least with BBRef. I’m mostly commenting on the disparity of the numbers there, rather than their value.

Right but the issue is the weights of various parts of the formula. BBRef weights things very differently than NBA.com does.

Also, that DRtg point is true of NBA.com as well.

About 3/4 of the players in the league would look better in a Kings uniform than Bagley. He’s a DNP-Coach’s Decision player for a reason.

At the risk of this comment turning into a rabbit hole of COVID political debating, I would love to see how attendance at major sporting events correlates with the political climate/identity of the communities the events are held in, once factors like historical attendance levels and team quality are controlled for. Other things being equal, do teams playing in “blue” places have worse attendance than those in “red” places? Sacramento is very blue, after all–does mean many Sac fans are extra-cautious and choose not to attend Kings games right now?

I don’t really think so, because I’ve watched Warrior, Laker and Clipper games and they all seemed packed. It just might depend on the fact that the Kings ticket prices are just too high compared to the teams results.

Good bellwether game for the Kings. Come out strong in the 3rd, stay in front of your man, make freethrows and put one in the W column

And then they would have made a run in the 4th to make it look like they had a chance and of course they would fall short
