Lord help me. I have to listen to the Lakers homer broadcast
Are usually don’t mind them, but John Ireland mispronounced Vezenkov’s name last game in the preseason the entire game. And now he’s saying it wrong again, but a different way.
I’m glad they’re sticking with Huerter.
He’ll need to get pulled if this continues, but even KZ Okpala got 4 games.
Glad to see Fox aggressive early.
So nice of the Kings to play this charity game against UCLA.
Yakshi’s already rolling
I just ask the Kings to not let DLo go off vs them like he seems to always do. So far, so good on that front
Did Murray hurt his thumb again? It’s taped
Thought he injured it in preseason and has been wearing tape over it since
Thanks. Isn’t it the same thumb as last year? Is this messing with his shot I wonder
that’s what we need from Davion!
Vezenkov is always in the right place and is always active with his hands. Really mitigates his athletic limitations on defense and rebounding. Very smart player.
I think he’s adapting to the nba!
Fox back in early.
Lmao that Javale pass was crazy
Duarte looking like a steal.
Javale McGee just made me laugh out loud.
That was some kind of crazy funny dunk.
Love it when Fox makes fun of players for their embarrassing flopping
Keep attacking the rim!
Mark Jones: “Malik Monk scares both coaches, yours and theirs”
Davion playing really aggressive defense against these senior citizens.
Kings gotta play defense WITHOUT fouling. Lakers getting to the line a ton. Fortunately, they’re struggling from there so far
I’ll try again— did Keegan injure his thumb again?
It’s the same injury as last season. Must have reaggravated it
Not good. Wonder how much it’s hurting his shot.
Damn Keeg…can’t hit anything this half
Keegan needs to try to score a 2. Also, Austin Reeves is very overrated.
Taurean Prince’s job seems to be traveling and fouling.
Huerter getting that swag back
Fox just made Austin Reaves run off the court like he wanted to order a beer.
Reaves is soooo overrated.
The more he calls his number the better for the Kings tonight.
Fox around and find out!
Much better finish to the 2nd quarter compared to last game.
I wonder what kind of beer Hillbilly Kobe would have ordered.
“Could I get an Amstel Light? No? Aw, shucks.”
Fox needs to stay aggressive in the 1st half every game.
Fox isn’t going to shoot over 80% the entire game, someone else is going to need to step up if the Kings are going to win. Who is it going to be?
Easy answer would be Keegan, who is too good of a shooter to keep missing these looks.
4 team fouls not even 2 minutes into the 3rd. If the Lakers come back, the Kings inability to prevent them from getting to the line will be something they look back on. They aren’t shooting it well but you can’t keep gifting them the FTA like this
Lakers have zero answer for Fox
Fox is making the Lakers look old and slow.
they’re running these guys off the court rn
That Mike Brown/Keegan sequence was incredible lol. Pissed at the young guy for being timid since his shot isn’t falling so he brings Sasha up to get ready to sub in for him, then sends him back to the bench when Keegan doesn’t hesitate and drains the 3 the next time he gets the ball. Always coaching and pushing his players and you love seeing them respond to it
Not a huge fan of these rotations where neither Fox or Monk are on the court tbh
There isn’t one player on the Lakers I like.
Somebody must have called out the refs not letting the Lakers get to the line enough in some previous games because “respect” and the NBA is reciprocating.
Duarte pushed to the ground and no offensive foul? Lol
So glad Vezenkov finally decided to come.
Vez is moving too much… There are other movers on the floor just camp and wait for the assist bro
Good game so far. Some of the bench guys still look bad, whats up with Davion?
Davion is having an off night so far.
Man I love Davion.
Duarte with the behind the back self pass? This kid has handles.
If Duarte could just shoot
One more quarter to go. Let’s close this out and get that W, boys.
Ugh man, feels like the Kings have missed every wide open corner 3 they’ve taken this game.
If only Duarte could shoot….
I love Vezenkov. He looks like an extra from Welcome Back, Kotter.
Gonna need Fox back in for the rest of the quarter now. Lead gone
Garbage to start third. They look lost.
Last two games have sounded 50/50 btwn Kings fans and visiting team fans. Just me?
It’s Lakers and Warriors. Makes sense.
Shoot. It’s slipping away.
Gotta pull Monk right now.
Agreed he’s killing us
This FT discrepancy is ridiculous. Story of the game and ironically we are the HOME team.
42-26 2nd half Lakers advantage
Oh fuck. Fox is down.
Ugh man….Fox with a bad looking ankle sprain
Ankle…ugh, please don’t let this be serious.
Oh man this looks bad
5 fouls on Sabonis. Need to be careful.
Fox is like Sabonis’ thumb.
Oh wow, Fox is back at the scorer’s table.
Wow Fox coming back in. Think adrenaline is helping him tough this one out
Wouldn’t be surprised though if he’s feeling something with the ankle tomorrow. Hoping he’s okay though.
Ugh. Barnes passed up a wide open 3 for a contested drive and miss.
Rough game for him
Think he ends up missing at least the next couple games. He’s getting through this on pure adrenaline
These missed free throws are killing me.
Domas fouls out
Kevin Huerter with a miss right at the basket. JFC.
I like Sasha coming in for Sabonis.
Lakers broadcast: “Fox is moving nicely.”
(Lakers broadcast cuts to a shot of Fox limping)
Fox is Him.
Keegan Murray Lakers Killer.
That was totally a flop.
Russle with the non flop call
I don’t like Monk in the game now.
MAKE YOUR FREE THROWS
Another 2 terrible late game three attempts by Fox.
I don’t like the Kings possibly going super small here. They need a rebounder in.
Barnes playing center….. EXTREME!
This game is the vaccine that will finally cure us of our antiFoxers.
Taking playing small to a new level
That was too easy for the Lakers.
Too easy there. Can’t really afford OT with Fox playing with 5 fouls and that ankle swelling only getting worse
What is Brown doing?
I want Sasha in here for the final offensive set.
Let’s get this W, please. No overtime.
Couldn’t ask for a better shot at the buzzer. Oh well.
Yep, it was a good shot and the right play, but missed unfortunately.
Damn. Couldn’t have asked for a better look
Keegan was a few feet too far out.
Coach called it.
it was a good look
Man, if only Murray was two feet closer.
That’s what I said. Open shot but he was WAY out there.
Fuk you overtime
no Sabonis for OT, what’s your lineup?
I’m playing Sasha.
Lyles would be great right about now
Bring JaVale back in!
So LBJ gets uncontested layup to tie. That sucked.
great rebound Keegan!
Fox shouldn’t be attempting 3s over AD.
Russell is a flopper.
Huerter rebounding over Davis. So sweet.
Nice board and take by Huerter.
Did Huerter just rip a rebound away from Davis????
Seeing Javale in OT makes it look even worse he wasn’t out there on the Lakers last possession in the 4th imo
HB been real terrible tonight
McGee with the Vlade.
Monk playing PG? Always a good decision.
Huerter is back!!
red velvet is back!
Thank you for finally making a three when we needed it, Kevin.
the Huerter ‘get right’ game?
Hell of a way to break out of a slump.
I mean the refs.
One more stop and get a damn rebound and hit your FT’s….then hope that Fox only ends up missing no more than the next few games
