Every team knows that Sabonis is the hub of the offense, they collapse on him and try to punish him physically to slow him and maybe get him in foul trouble.

Long athletic wing outta Pepperdine. Was a 2nd rd pick in the 2021 draft by the Nets.

There’s a reason the Kings took him in trade. They really like him, and I’m betting Doug Christie being a Pepperdine guy had something to do with it also.

I’m guessing the Kings FO really likes him, also. As HKKF said, they did I think plan to send him to Stockton. But as we’ve seen, he can play. He’d be a great add to this rotation if they can unlock him. He fits everything they really need on the perimeter.

Lol. That was bad table breaking form. The guidelines for a good table break:

1) jump from a reasonable height. No more than 4 feet above the table, no less than 2

2) lead with the shoulder, not your feet or your butt or your head

3) don’t be on fire

4 turnovers for Phx, 9 points for Sac. 3 TOV’s for Sac, 2 points for Phx. 20 to 18 paint points Phx advantage. The bench has really changed things dramatically tonight for Sac. But if the starters don’t start doing something, this won’t continue.

Smart by Mike Brown. He has two timeouts he can use before he loses one. It wouldn’t surprise me with all the trouble each team is having they take time really quickly since both teams have another timeout to take by the mandatory use it or lose it period of 3 mins to go.

Have to use 5 of your 7 timeouts by the 3 min mark of the 4th qtr. You have to take a mandatory timeout (or call it sooner) each qtr as well.

Case in point BD. That’s why Monty Williams took time there. Wouldn’t surprise me if Mike Brown also takes time as well.

I’d guess to keep teams from hoarding timeouts and making the end game glacially slow.

Yep. My thought as well. Especially since they have a tendency to call a lot of timeouts in the last minute. I’m not sure when it changed, but I like it honestly.

Brutal swing there. Kessler fumbles the pass on the fast break and then Fox gifts PHX a free point with that bad foul

Edwards fumbles it on one end, Fox commits a horrible foul leading to an And1 chance for Ayton on the other.

Ay ay ay…..this team sometimes.

Ummm, Booker poked Sabonis in the eye. You’re not going to win that challenge Monty

Yeah but he was holding onto his arm first. Looking at the Suns replay, it’s clear Sabonis grabs Booker first. Unfortunately.

Wasn’t much but Booker did extend his arm and looks like he poked Domas in the eye. Don’t see how they overturn that

This’ll be interesting to see how the refs call this for the Suns considering Monty Williams is challenging this.

I love Kessler Edwards man. This kid has a shot at sticking in the league, and people who scout college and stuff thought that. I’m glad the Kings took a swing on him, free or not.

2nd loss all year to Pacific Division opponents for the Suns. The Clippers before the ASB were the first team to get the Suns.

Amazing. This Kings team is different. That’s all I can say.
