Am I the only worried about Bagley and Ivey popping off tonight?😂
Gallo isn’t worried. He, in fact, likes our chances.
Gallo so glad to see you’re here. Call me whatever you want but I was starting to think about taking down my Gallo shrine………blasphemous………sorry dude. Go Kings!!!!
Gallo has never really been away. He has been watching most games from a seat near a huge screen at the Palm Street Pub at Marconi and Fair Oaks, not far from his roost.
One problem has been that Ms. Gallina has been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) that has left her fairly immobile. She needs the couch, TV, and computer most days and nights. No, there’s nothing to be done.
Gallo seriously, I’m so sorry to hear that. Very tough. You, your wife and your family will be in my prayers an d I pray multiple time per day. I understand the diagnosis. When my wife was diagnosed with terminal metastatic breast cancer and there was nothing else to be done after all the trials I don’t know what to say. There will be better days and worse days and for her and your kids all you can do is make the better days a little bit more special. I live in Chico but it would just be a short drive to join you at Marconi & Fair Oaks and catch a game with you. It would be my pleasure. Hang in my brother. Hope the Kings bring some slight into your life during a really dark time. All my love Gallo
Thank you all so much. It will be hard for her . . . it already is, just two years in. The decline of cognitive function is bad enough, but the loss of dexterity is more of a daily frustration. She can’t cook or open anything. I have to be her hands. The docs all tell her not to drive.
It will be hard for me, too, but I don’t want to whine about that.
Love you brother!
I’m so sorry…
I’m sorry to hear that Gallo. Hope the last days with her are eventful.
Best wishes to you and your family, Gallo.
Best wishes. Hoping for ease and peace for you both.
Now that I think about it I guess you are. Who knows what Jaden is going to do but Bagley hasn’t even crossed my mind
Hilarious start. Pistons trying to get a look for Bagley and then on the defensive end, Domas easily bullies him to draw a foul.
Domas gonna feast today
The boos for Bagley are clearly a thing.
Bagley hurt. Very shocking
Aaannndddd, Bagley is now hurt. Soft.
That is hilarious. Perfect
2 fouls for Fox already
So glad to have the good Barnes back
It is nice but begs the question of: If Kings are playing well with Barnes, does Monte try to move him and risk chemistry??
The energy inside of Golden One is incredible.
Where the hell was that Burks when he played for us???
He was a victim of the Kangz
Get some stops. Can’t be given up 30 to Detroit in a quarter.
Burks and CoJo really hitting everything vs the Kings
Mike Brown calling a time out to let the fans find their seats after the quarter break.
THey’re letting CoJo get into the paint. I’m begging the Kings to play some defense at some point this game
Kings aren’t taking the Pistons seriously. They’re coasting off superior talent.
But if they leave this one close until the end and Fox stutters, this could certainly be a very stupefying and humbling L before a LONG road trip.
C’mon Kings. Throttle these guys.
What the hell is it with teams facing the Kings? They all become the best shooting versions of themselves regardless. Kevin Knox is hitting 3’s
Mike Brown is gonna have an aneurysm in the locker room at Halftime
No way Detroit keeps shooting at this clip…………Right????
If you’ve been around for awhile go down to the bottom of the thread and say hey to Gallo
Pistons getting into the paint every trip down with ease.
Wait they called a foul on Domas there? Good lord
Does Sabonis have too much lotion on his hands or what???
Seriously he’s buttered 3 times already dude needs to settle down and catch before dunking, he’s not consistent enough to be a star yet, specially with his rookiesk foul trouble
We really need a RIM PROTECTOR in a bad way.
Yup, Pistons are exploiting that weakness.
I’m on the Myles Turner bandwagon. Fills a huge void and keeps him away from the Lakers.
Does nobody else want to see Queta for 12 minutes a night? It’s like he’s a 7′ tall rim protecting ghost.
Wouldn’t be surprised if the org doesn’t think he’s quite ready yet. Also wouldn’t be surprised if his contract gets converted into a standard NBA contract like Metu after the trade deadline.
Fox is becoming a superstar before our very eyes. Carrying us.
Pistons shooting out of their minds
So Ivey went a combined 3/21 from 3PT the last 3 games so of course he’s 4/4 so far today through 2 quarters.
Can’t feel good about giving up 70 to the Pistons. Ugly.
Good news is they’re only down 2 at half despite playing zero defense and the Pistons somehow shooting 9/14 from 3PT despite being a terrible 3PT shooting team. Got to think they start falling back down to earth in the 2nd half. Kings just gotta do a better job of preventing so many easy buckets in the paint(daily issue yeah yeah)
Please hold this team under 30 for the 3rd and 4th and win this game. Damnit
gonna have to play well to earn the W
Metu got burned defensively multiple times He was a matador in the first half. May need to go to Len or Holmes to anchor the interior defense.
Yeah not sure why Holmes found himself in the doghouse so early in the season, I like Metu but not enough to solidify him in the rotation, on another note and most importantly, why in the hell is TD not getting minutes? He has been easily a top 6 player in our rotation during this run he needs to be in our rotation.
who’s gonna step up?
That’s it…Take it to the rack!
Half time box score does not look nice. There goes the idea that an elite offense can compensate for a crappy defense. If you’re letting the Pistons hit 64% of their 3 pointers on you, you’re not going to win.
Pistons really can’t miss from 3 no matter what
Dammit go to Sabonis in the post on Bags.
Jaden Ivey is gonna be good folks, give him 1-2 years
Kings deserve to lose this game.
Pistons with over 80 already 4 minutes into the 3rd. Kings really need to wake up because this is a game they need to win with their upcoming stretch after this
Ehh not too concerned yet, still up by a point and I expect us to clamp them down here in the third and fourth
Get them into foul trouble. Knock down your free throws and box out
Fox trying to carry them to a win
Seriously, what did Domas do to the NBA officials because they truly hate him
When Barnes is right, he is so crafty in drawing fouls. Veteran move.
WTF are they not posting Sabonis up on Bags?
This is about as good of a shooting night and as poor of an officiating night as the Pistons could have asked for
I’m so not liking the pace of this game. You can’t let teams you should beat stay with you. As game wears on, all the pressure will be on the Kings.
Wlep. There is 30 in the 3rd
Pistons now 12/19 from 3PT. This is dumb
At least the Kings are up 24 to 8 in made FT’s. I have a feeling the Kings will close the gap on made 3’s as the game comes to a close.
12 3’s and 12 FT’s for the Pistons now. 8 3’s and 24 FT’s for the Kings now.
Ivey getting some power boost going against the team who passed on him
Too much passing is a good problem to have
(Unless you’re Ben Simmons)
Wow, they’re gonna let the Pistons show 100+ points through 3 quarters. Whatever the final result, this sure feels like it’s a loss.
Absolute struggle, and the game is tied.
I keep waiting for the Pistons to start missing their 3’s and it’s just not happening
Lookin like regression has come for Huerter. Wasn’t gonna shoot over 50% from 3PT all season. Need more from the bench
This is the standard deviation, 50% is the mean.
The refs are getting worse as the game goes on.
Domas clobbered in the head with an elbow=foul on him
Burks flops and flails his legs out after a shot=gets the call
U forget to point out that Sabonis was grabbing his arm and basically caused himself to get hit in the head
Metu…grab a board ffs
If the Kings were the Powerpuff Girls then TD is the Chemical X
Gotta get Keegan back on track. Hasn’t looked good for awhile now.
Well, all tied up through 3. Time for the stars on this team to take over in the 4th and find a way to get an ugly W
Okay, tied 102-102 at the end of the third. How much do the Kings win by?
I’m gonna guess by 7-9.
4 pts off late FTs
I could see it going up to 7 if Detroit plays the foul game at the end
Right on the money
Murray has not been living up to expectations for awhile, and its in the face of Ivey showing out
Someone going to box out Durren? Like ever?
Pistons have now matched their PPG average less than 2 minutes into the 4th quarter. Gross
One on one bullshit on one end. No defense on the other.
This was the trap game u all were looking for
metu sucks, his defense and rebounding are silly. his lobs aren’t saving him. these are Len’s minutes
You thought Fox couldn’t make an imprint, you thought Wagner would be a bad nba player and Murray is doing well and now Metu. I personally like it when you think guys suck because you are usually wrong!
Kevin Knox was 3/20 from 3PT for the season coming into today. He is 3/4 in this game
Well, they were bound to come back to earth at some point. Can’t let a young team play with confidence. Yes, the Pistons are very confident right now.
Pistons really just not cooling off from 3PT at all….
o can understand one, maybe two guys hot form three but damn, the entire team is on fire.
Box the fuck out!
This Duran dude killing the Kings on the boards. Can they bring Bagley back in for him
Um, Murray was pushed.
Jesus Christ enough about CoJo. He was miserable to watch here.
Keegan is very limited athletically. He can’t create his own shot.
Mark Davis GFY
And eat a bag of dicks
Fuck these refs and fuck the NBA.
If we were playing 2K23, the Pistons got Team Takeover.
Damn monk made him his bitch 🤣
LBJ and Westbrook taunt after every dunk.
That’s the problem with the NBA. Preferential treatment for the stars.
Okpala can get minutes but Queta or Holmes can’t?
I hope McNair gets us a rim protecting big.
Keegan is killing me.
I don’t understand why they aren’t posting Sabonis on Bags. It worked early on.
Terrible officiating. Almost as bad as Portland game.
Fox settling for long 2’s early in the shot clock. Need better looks
Fox put Ivey on skates
We need a Fox takeover.
Amen. Wanna be an All-Star? Put the bottom dwellers away yourself when the game is on the line.
Huerter got the message
Outside of his missed 3’s, he’s played a great game. HB too.
I would call this HB’s best game. He’s been exactly the steady presence the team needed tonight.
Yep. Tough game overall. Much needed from HB. But it’s better to be pissed about how you played in a W than in a L.
Man Kayte talks a fuck ton
Fox caught sleeping and Ivey blows by him…
RED VELVET TIME
If u don’t like that you don’t like kings basketball whooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!’
👏 👏 👏 👏 👏
Fuck these refs man
What a horrible call
Say it with your face Kevin
Kings are the king of the L2M report screwjobs
This ref trying his hardest to keep the Pistons in the game. This dude needs to be investigated.
The old Mike Bibby elbow to the face foul.
The only thing I’m gonna say tonight is that Kevin has to stop fouling other players with his cheekbones. I t must really hurt the other players elbows
King Win!!! 5>8
yeees! six in a row!
Ugly win>even uglier loss
And it’s another game where the Kings take over in crunch time….finding ways to win. Something they rarely have done in years prior.
This offense truly is something else. They didn’t even shoot well from 3PT tonight and still put up 137. I still have a hard time seeing how this team can improve enough defensively to be average with their current personnel, but if they can maintain a top 5 offense like this, they should continue to stay afloat in the playoff picture in a stacked West
Did the Kings foul three-point shooters? (see Alec Burks spread eagle call and Kevin Huerter elbow to the face call). Answer: no. And STILL got the W. way to play through adversity.
A win is a win is a win is a win is a…
