It’s Sunday, it’s early and it’s the Rockets. You have literally seen and heard it all before. The only surprise left for you with this team is how unsurprised you’ll feel at the unexpected.
Let's talk Kings basketball.
When: Sunday, January 16th, 3:00 PM PT
Where: Golden 1 Center, Sacramento, CA
TV: NBCSCA - Kyle Draper (play-by-play)
Radio: KHTK Sports 1140 AM
For Your Consideration
Second Stage is Cut: Well, well, well… if it isn’t the Kings beating terrible teams and convincing the ever hopeful of untrue things and further feeding the eternal fire of the pessimists with their less than stellar play between the tip and final horn.
I’ve got no extra stats or breakdowns for you, besides the one I’m on my way to having if I have to acknowledge being pleased to finally seeing the Kings get nationwide airtime… from Saturday Night Live. The Kings played a pendulum game against the worst team in the West and came out on top, which is, always a relief. Marvin Bagley III had his best game in years and is now assuredly going to get Sacramento a return on investment. Alperen Sengun had 9 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists in less than 14 minutes.
They’re running it back today. That’s literally all we need to know.
A Thing To Read, Watch, or Do
Go Outside: No, I’m not kidding. This game is at three o’clock and the sun isn’t setting upon your smiling face until 5:10 pm. Get some crisp air in those lungs, walk your dog the extra block they’ve been begging you for all winter, grab a trash bag and some gloves and just… pick up enough trash in your world where you can roll into work Monday and actively question “Am I really going to tell people how much trash I picked up yesterday?” This team sucks, this species sucks but the space that starts an atom’s width past your nose and ends an unknowable number away is beautiful. Go explore a little patch of it and make it better with your presence if you can.
Oh… football’s on today? Oh okay that’s fine too.
The Cowboys run roughshod over the Niners today… unless your favorite team is the Cowboys and then I’d say the Niners are wafflestomping y’all down a storm drain. In the coming years, the most obvious piece of trash you could have picked up today but didn’t blows it’s way toward the Sacramento River, where it slowly chokes a fish to death. A fish that would have cured cancer had it lived. Shame on you.
Kings: 119, Rockets: 105
