Kings vs. Thunder Preview: Five to Go!

Wait, why are you here?

Well, it's a Sunday game, on Mother's Day and the Sacramento Kings are playing a team who has lost 23 of their last 25 games. Sacramento's thin margin of hope for making a run at the play-in was dashed on Friday night in the waning minutes of their contest against the Spurs and as a finally set up for how this game is going to go, De'Aaron Fox, Tyrese Haliburton, Harrison Barnes are all out, with Buddy Hield  questionable after cranking his ankle.

To the 25 people who read this preview, I love you and we all need to go to emergency group therapy together to discover why we spent even a minute of time on this today.

Let's talk Kings basketball.

When: Sunday, May 9th, 7:00 PM PST

Where: Golden 1 Center, Sacramento, CA

TV: NBCSCA - Mark Jones (play-by-play)

RadioKHTK Sports 1140 AM

For Your Consideration

No, Seriously, Why Are You Here?: Oh boy, I can't wait to write about my second favorite rookie this year! I know it was a little rough to start but he's really improved of late and seeing him get some praise is really vindicating to see. Lemme just click on this injury report to make sure Pokusevsk- wait... wait... wait.

I'm done. I quit!!!!!

(Happy Mother's Day, everyone!)

Prediction

Greg takes this as an actual resignation. The Kings Herald rejoices. Kings in a barnburner.

Kings: 122, Thunder: 109

Tonight we again play the Thunder.
Friday’s loss leaves no room to wonder.
It’s no use to proceed
Still to chase the tenth seed.
Just end this delusion we’re under!

Do you follow the team down under?
Where Vlade’s rival GM’s did plunder
Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the Thunder?
You better run, you better take cover

I generally consider it my station in life to troll you, in case you were wondering Will. 🙂

I’m not trolling you Will. I’m just eternally grateful I don’t have your job.

I’m really liking Harkless and DeLon Wright. TD is good too. Hoping they will be good role players for next year.
