Cautiously optimistic, but at the same time a loss in this game would be the toughest one to swallow so far this season.
Then again: Portland, GS, Memphis, Clips, and Heat. I guess I’m being Captain Obvious.
Might want to get that throat ready.
Come on now, don’t give up halfway through the first quarter.
That’s what he said
Defeat the Zebras!
Normal game time for this European dumbass!
What time is it over there? 7 or 8pm?
My bad. At least you get to bed before Daylight Savings ends. 🙂
Don’t get down on yourself Dutchman. Give us Americans a chance to get down on you……….we’re good at it
Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Barnes has to stop with those chuck shots under the rim. He’s out of control.
Need to bench HB
Brown took out the wrong guy
The more things change, the more they remain the same.
I’ve been waiting for Draper and Christensen to have to figure out a way to talk about how great Orlando is.
Bol Bol is certainly intriguing, and Paolo and Franz will be a great pairing for a long time. But tonight? Kings better win this one.
Maybe run some plays?
Getting Lyles as an afterthought in the Domas trade was such a finesse
I’m feeling like a moron for taking the over on the win total this season.
Kayte said opposing team don’t realize how good the Magic are and how long they are 🤣🤣🤣 They’re 2-7 🥴🥴🥴
Fans don’t understand how terrific Orlando is !
Did anyone have Bol Bol getting a triple double on his bingo card?
I’m totally interested in drop $450 for three halfway decent lower bowl seats at G1 so my family of three can see this shit show in person. Plus gas to drive 1 hr and 15 min, parking, and food.
I think you could hire the first 3 posters here on any game thread for $250 for 3 individual streams customized for you and your family. Then for overpriced drinks we’ll order from Drizzly and pizza delivery from Round Table. Plus we’ll constantly talk about missing you on the game thread and just for your kid we’ll all say what a great guy you are, how much we miss your basketball IQ.
Who says no?
Nobody says no.
Seems the Magic are a championship team . Who knew ?
Thank god for the Sac State game on the small screen, so I can watch something entertaining while the Kings are on.
Keegan playing some horrendous defense at the moment
The whole team is…what happened to this defense minded coach
Who needs Red Rain anyway?
Magic shooting 67%. So much for emphasis on defense. We need rim protection in a bad way.
Do the Kings guard the three point line well or not guard the paint well?
HB with the air ball three. Why is he still in there?
New Lob City
New Lob City or just playing the Kangz?
Murray looks like a lost rookie
Everyone shooting terribly tonight (except Domas)
Screw it. I’m officially on the tank wagon. This team is so bad.
BolBol is stealing some of Wemby’s thunder
Looks like it’s a good thing I’ve missed most of the first half, since it appears it’s the kind of Kings basketball that the fan base has been subjected to thousands of times prior
THIS SEASON FEELS DIFFERENT!!!
Our motto prior to every season.
It does to me.
Absolutely the worst defensive effort of the year. And that’s saying a lot.
I thought the 80’s – mid 90’s teams were bad. Geez.
Somewhere, Luke Walton is laughing his ass off.
Let’s see if Brown can get them ready for the second half
John Wooden couldn’t get this team ready for the second half.
Username checks out.
You were saying the same thing when the Kings were down 15 at halftime against the Hornets, and that was less than a week ago.
The team is 2-5 with one of the worst defenses in the league. What have they done to earn any benefit of the doubt?
Huh. The answer turned out to be yes.
Indeed. Happy to see it.
The Kings employing their “let the other team get a huge first half” defense so they’ll sit their starters for the second half. Genius move. Almost worked against the Dubs.
Seriously though, what on earth happened to Barnes shot this season? These misses are Westbrook level of yikes
He has made himself untradeable and yet Brown continues to start him. He’s been hurting the team all year with his no defense and no offense game.
You guys crack me up.
Hali-who? Let’s go Domas
Just as I suspected….Kings opponents take a very low number of threes but they shoot among the highest percentage from three against the Kings. Teams aren’t taking threes against the Kings because they’re guaranteed a free shot in the paint. But of course, Kayte and Kyle say the Kings’ defense limits the threes taken by their opponents.
Banchero trying to play hero ball with fadeaways and threes from the top of the key.
First half was rough… How are we doing consistently better in 3rd quarters?
Are…are the Kings a 3rd quarter team now?
Big moment here. Starters did great to erase the large deficit and now they need about several good minutes from the bench without letting Orlando go on another big run
Indeed they did. Finished those last couple of minutes of the 3rd strong. Likely need another few minutes into this 4th before Fox/Sabonis re-enter
Yep. Bench did their job. They had the Kings up 92-82 here in the 4th. Now it’s up to the starters to finish it.
36-12 3rd quarter. Damn! Brown must’ve chewed into the team at half and challenged them something fierce
I like when we half good third quarters better than collapsing
Awesome 3rd. Now finish strong
From one of the worst halves of the season to the best third quarter of the season. Can’t figure out these guys.
All I know is that it was excellent foresight by me to have missed much of the 1st half and only be able to sit and watch the game for the entire 3rd quarter, so all I’ve mostly see is great Kings basketball
Don’t look at the first half, it will make you sick.
Bol Bol is having too easy of a time.
Jeez, 10-0 run by the Magic and now it’s tied again
What the hell has gotten into Bol Bol today
Let’s top it off with some smoked Fox mid-range shots…and smoked Domas free throws.
Harrison Barnes got Space Jammed and forgot how to play basketball.
HB plays like he aged 10 years in the off season.
Jeez Domas. 2/9 from the FT line
Domantas O’Neal. DeAndre Sabonis.
Did Keegan make the road trip? He’s been MIA the last two games.
Hate that possession by Fox there. Settles for a long, contested 2 with no ball movement. WTF
Wasted possession when Fox does that.
Cmon Fox. Take Carter to the rack. A pull up???
looks like another moral ‘W’. I think we’d be a top 4 seed if they counted.
Why the hell is Metu out there over Sabonis?
What the F kind of defense was that???
You said an hour ago that you were rooting for the other team, so why are you upset?
At what point did I say I’m rooting for the Magic?? Of course I want the Kings to win. However, if we keep going down 15-18 points to non- playoff level teams on a consistent basis, it’s clear that this team is not a playoff caliber team. I’d much rather see a full on rebuild than fighting for a 8-10 seed every year.
Close game with the King shooting terribly from the FT line again. Might cost them another game
I don’t think Sabonis could jump onto a curb
Really bad execution/decision making in crunch time by the Kings but they found a way to get themselves into OT
That was a great lineup Brown had to finish the 4th IMO. Big heavy, lot of switching, use Barnes on Banchero initially.
In a way, I’m amazed this team is headed to OT. This group just feels different to me.
This game should have been an easy win, but we don’t have those.
Me: How the hell does a team out score their opponent by 24 in the third quarter and not secure a win?
Kings: Check this out.
Fox absolutely dominating this OT
Never doubted Black Falcon 😁
Bol Bol missed a shot!
Ladies and gentleman Kayte Christenson is the most knowledgeable person when it comes to the NBA. She knows everything about everybody. That’s why she won’t shut up
I’ll bet you she knows more about basketball in her little finger tna you do in your wholebody.
Ugh, back to back turnovers by the Kings
uh oh zebras activated
I almost wish this had been a much more boring game.
Lol ridiculous. Lyles getting his legs tackled and they call the foul on him. Sure
Oh for Pete’s sake. Offensive foul for that?
Crap, they fouled the right guy
Hack-A-Shaq..er, I mean Sabonis
Hit your FT’s and you win
OMG. Cmon Fox.
Zebras are trying
Orlando plays some corny music in their arena.
LOL good game.
LOL WHAT JUST HAPPENED
Gallo cannot fucking believe it.
This is just plain crazy.
IF YOU DONT LIKE THAT…. That was sick
One second a bonehead turnover to let Orlando tie it up and then Fox pulls a Steph Curry to win it. KANGZ
Every time Fox does something dumb……He totally makes up for it!!
Legit had no time to even be mad at the stupid turnover to allow Orlando to tie it there since Fox buried that logo 3 hah
A game to remember, that’s for sure.
Who misses more free throws Sabonis or Willey Cauley Stein?
We all earned some sort of unique TKH badge for watching this game, no?
Good question. I’d take Sabonis. Sabonis missed 7 free throws tonight. Has Willie Cauley Stein even been to the line seven times in a game in his NBA career?
I concede. It was just a little LOL comment.
