Wooooooow!!! That place is ELECTRIC! The ooh’s and the awes are awesome to hear… I almost felt like I was there for a second. I wish I could get out there for a game this fun season. I got to attend my first Home Kings game in 2020 when Luka was in town and the most excitement was the oooh’s from a missed dunk by Bagley that would have been freakish, which was funny because the rest of the energy came from boing Bagley before and after that play 😂

The Kings just don’t match up well against this Raps team. The Raps are in 12th place but the Kings just can’t hang with them yet again. This is the kind of game where Fox can’t wait until the 4th quarter.

I think the Raptors assistant coach was telling the official at the beginning of the time out that he had a cold one waiting for letting them play physical and swallowing the whistle. For the record they are swallowing on both ends so it’s on the Kings to get over it
