See Bro it isn’t Fox we’ve been missing…..it’s you. How are things going?
Fox is back. Congrats on the baby, now just win this one.
Fox looks great during warmups. Sabonis is huge in person. Guy next to me said he hasn’t seen Keegan play but said his warmup J is “Effin Sweet.” Hope it translates.
I saw a smile on his face from a picture Jason Anderson linked to. I’m guessing it’s partly due to being back on the court and because he’s got a new son with his wife (their first together). FWIW, I looked this up for my own personal amusement and Domas missed 2 games when his son was born, too.
It’s strange what people wil be critical and whom they will be critical of. I don’t think we would have heard much noise about Domas missing these last 2 games if the shoe were on the other foot.
The weirdest/dumbest one I saw was that he was on leave because he was mad about the All-star game.
I would bet dollars to doughnuts, BTB, he knew he wasn’t making the initial reserve list but as an injury replacement.
20 years from now, nobody will care unless it’s his only All Star game.
Loves his wife and child? So you mean he’s not giving the team 100%? Bum.
I know what a horrible example to set … I mean why should he be present for such a silly thing… people are freaking crazy!
I was curious if you were there
Fox was checking back into the game during a lull in play and I asked loudly if his baby was born. He had a small smile but did not respond. He looks happy.
Fox and the Ox for the win. Keegan due for a good shooting game to break out of his slump. GO KINGS DSJLKJFLKS:DJF
Isn’t that a town in Iceland?
The band is back together…
The offense has movement again.
Off to another flat start.
Fox got him!
That turnaround, jeez.
Only 1 of 4 so far doe……NaAllStar.
Not. team Guy…
We can and should beat this Houston team twice.
They’re starting to pick it up, now.
Davion. 4. Tree.
Just took Green’s soul. I love watching that man play defense.
This is a different Davion playing tonight. Full bore hustle. Fellow on my other side just said “My God” when he shut down Jalen Green.
when he doesn’t have to provide offense it is great
Davion needs much more playing time too, he was out of sorts when asked to do something other than his typical role. He’s a smart dude and works hard, he’ll come around as his career progresses, just needs a lot more situational experience.
That was a hell of a defensive possession by Davion on Jalen Green.
Davion playing well. Good to see him engaged on both sides of the ball.
we a happy family again? Gallo del Cielo likes our chances.
“Davion Mitchell puttin’ that D on him.” -Kayte
Curious what the difference from last night to tonight is. Other than the obvious one with De’Aaron.
Getting ripped a new one by Brown.
Glad to see Murray showing some life tonight.
Different energy by everyone tonight. Wonder what it is. This is….odd.
Did we just see Houston JP?
The bald ref is calling all the fouls.
Team is Uber aggressive on D tonight. Everyone playing really hard on transition D.
It helps a lot that the Rockets truly do stink.
That too. They need a point guard and they will have a good one available when it’s their turn to draft.
I haven’t watched him much…..but Kevin Porter is not someone I am a fan of when I’ve seen him play. Is there something I’m missing about Porter you think?
I’m just not a fan, more or less, is what it is.
He’s Marcus Thornton 2.0
J Walker is right in my mind. One lightning in a bottle game
followed by five bad games. Thornton is not a comparison I have thought of but you’re spot on.
Hey, I just thought of a song idea. “It’s a long way to the top if you wanna manage load.” Like the AC/DC song. what do you think?
My goal is for the Kings to go .500 for the remainder of the year. If they can do that while resting some guys I’m a thumbs up. Just don’t slip into the play-in.
Normally, if we were shooting 28% from 3, we’d be losing. Thankfully, the Rockets are shooting 0%
50Cent flat hilarious.
Love when the commentators takes the opportunity to boast about our team’s defense when we play the league’s bottom feeders
Şengün is throwing a lot of elbows.
what? I asked for “generous” elbows, with raki
Boy this officiating crew sure loves the sound of their own whistles
Jalen Green has zero chance at defending Fox
Keegan Murray kind of reminds me of Rudy Gay. Rudy always looked slower than he was, didn’t show a lot of emotion…
Rudy was pretty even-keeled but was quite expressive (he used to make all kinds of faces), just not boisterous with it.
I guess I don’t remember tht.. maybe a bad comparison
God is it good to get Fox back!
Plenty of Kings fans in the arena, more up at the bar sucking down beers, good on them.
If appropriate start the light the beam chant
When its at opposing arenas…I don’t even care if the chant happens too early. Do it when we’re up by 2 in the 3rd for all I care. Love hearing it at away games.
This woman just won free Whataburger. God help her internal organs, that stuff is beyond terrible.
Jeez, Rockets can’t miss from 3 this quarter
Offensive foul on Fox? Huh?
Poor Deaaron, couldn’t even spend some time with his kid cause the team can’t operate without him
He had 2 days with him. His son was born Friday night.
Yeah, he’s not a government worker.
Lol let’s just say he wasn’t the one giving birth
2 huge 3’s by Keegan to try and offset this hot Rockets 3PT shooting this quarter.
I feel like Keegan feels more confident tonight in his shot. But maybe the Rockets have something to do with it, too.
Sengün is SabonisLite
And Sabonis is JokicLite
Hilarious that if you lined them up they’d get smaller, younger, and less accomplished lol.
How many derivatives removed from Jokic is still a starter in the NBA?
That was a ridiculous pass by Sengun to Green before JG got fouled.
Kayte’s jokes about random drug tests are Stuuuuupid.
Davion is feeling it tonight
Really? He couldn’t even hold his own the past two games
Oh come on refs.
Rockets scored 40 points….but the Kings scored 34 themselves. Most of that point increase was the sheer volume of 3’s made.
Keegan Murray was huge in the 3rd and thank goodness for that. That kept that qtr from a tire fire.
Trey Lyles owns the Rockets
Weak take by Murray.
Monk driving the stake into the Rockets heart
This is more like it.
Light The Beam?
that would be premature beamage
Seven guys in double figures.
Turn the sprinkler systems on MALIK MONK is on fire!!!
Take Sabonis out!
Needed to lock up that double double. Now they can pull him
He HAS to get a triple double, HAS TO!
I like Sengun’s game but he really needs to relax with his excessive flopping.
Are u guys really complaining about flopping?
Are you complaining about us complaining?
That was a spin/hook shot by Domas!!!
What I find fascinating is that Keegan Murray has the most shot attempts of any King tonight.
Good to see the offense back hitting on all cylinders. First time this road trip where they look like themselves on that end. Gotta finish it strong with another W on Wednesday to wrap this road trip up with a 4-3 record. Was hoping they’d go 5-2, and they probably would have if Fox didn’t miss the last 2 games.
I am a Keon Ellis fan
Give Keon Ellis davions minutes!!!!!
Keegan with 30 points. I wonder if the Kings lead the NBA in most 30 point games from different players this season.
Nice bounce back from Keegan!
Keegan statement game?
Ok, I’m going to call myself out for saying yesterday that Murray should be coming off the bench. Crow does not taste like chicken.
Kings match both their last season win total and last seasons road wins total 10 days before the all-star break
I really hope we can find a way to keep Trey Lyles
Thank you Kings for winning and making my night more pleasant. Light the Beam!!!!!
