Problem is they don’t half a half court offense outside of the dribble handoff and Fox iso. And they absolutely live and die by the three. Pels are not allowing a lot of open looks and the they aren’t taking advantage of the ones they do get.

Fox is trying to put this team on his back. But they just don’t have many reliable scoring options outside of him. Domas will get you 18/12/10 a night, but he’s not gonna go off for 40. Need a reliable third option outside of those two and they just don’t have it.

He’s a walking triple double. He’ll rebound like crazy and set guys up to score, but he should really be a 3rd scoring option. You can run the offense through him, but he can’t carry the scoring load. They need a consistent scoring threat out on the wing.

Maybe Davion is just making bad decisions? He has been good the past couple weeks, tonight he looks sped up.

he played well the entire 2nd half of the season. but he changed his shot selection in the Golden State game. it was obvious.

The problem with this team is that there are too many guys who don’t show up when the pressure is on. They were fantastic against the Warriors, but the only guy who really showed up tonight is Fox (and Barnes), and that’s not enough.

Fox, Barnes and Domas. But the rest stunk, so far.

CJ blew by him several times as if he wasn’t even there.

He’s good at many aspects but still suspect against dribble penetration, IMO.

Also, we need him to be part of the offense.

I’d argue that Sabonis has shown up. 4-6, 10, 9, 4, 3 steals, and a block. What else do you want from him?

Sure. But Domas can’t score when you need it and they’re all getting smoked on defense.

He needs to do a much better job

We need the TNT crew to turn against the kings. It’s the only way.

When we up 10, feels like we up 1. Pels up 9, feels like 20.

He hasn’t really been open. Murphy and Jones have stuck to him.

Pels pressure him when he has the ball, and Keegan can’t handle that, so driving will result is a turnover.

He needs to get consistent at attacking the basket and creating his own shot. If all he ever is is a 3 and D wing, that will have a ton of value for any Kings roster that hopes to contend, but they drafted him at 4 to take his offense to the next level.

can the Davion of the 2nd half of the season please show up?

ScrumhalfVinny

The good news is that, outside of Fox and Sabonis, this team couldn’t agree much worse.

The bad news is, with the current injury issues, I have no idea where a spark could actually come from. Maybe Barnes just starts playing out of his mind and it opens up good looks for Keon, Trey, and a hobbled Keegan.

An athletic stretch 4 to compensate for Domasโ€™s weaknesses.

We need a big that can score and play defense..,maybe Zack Edey.

They need a Brook Lopez. Someone who can guard the paint defensively and let Domas play away from the basket, but then can stretch the floor offensively and let Domas go to work in the paint.

Agreed. Just doesnโ€™t seem like MM has made any effort to obtain this archetype of a 4.

Itr seems that they’re calling the game more tightly to start the second.
