Holmes pulled out less than 10 minutes before the game for left ankle soreness. Ugh!

Lol. Not happy that Holmes is on my fantasy team and Bagley, Haliburton, and Heild is on my opponent’s team -and it’s a close week. Regardless, go Kings!

I’m nervous about this one. Are the Kings going to play defense? Which unknown Blazer is going to have a career night?

I don’t have much hope for tonight. Second of a back to back and no Holmes leaves me in doubt.

As I remembered that A. Simon have had career night against us already…
It’s next unknown player’s turn

This is weird. Is Holmes just taking a break so Luke can start Barnes against Covington at PF?

I really don’t like the idea of Bagley guarding Nurkic. I’m thinking early foul trouble for Bags.

Won’t be surprise if the Blazers win wire to wire. Piss poor defense.

We got the wrong Buddy trade him for Air Bud ASAP

GFunkClassic
January 9, 2021 7:20 pm

If we’re all being honest, Buddy’s play has been the most suspect out of all the Kings.

Hard to argue. The number of airballs he shoots now is astonishing, and the more he pounds the ball into the lane, the more likely that there will be a turnover.

Please watch Bagley off ball. It’s absolutely incredible.

If he gets back in.

at least his presence in the paint still made an impact…and he blocked shots

Bagley is so bad on defense he makes whiteside look somewhat decent

Buddy Hield’s trade value is a 4th rounder in the CFL

9sac8
January 9, 2021 7:55 pm

I have breaking news. You are very close, but Buddy is announcing his retirement from the league after the game. The first player in history to play beyond the age of 70.

I believe you’re referring to the Canadian Football League.

Hali is just feeding Bagley at the rim and he’s still missing.

Totally agree…

With him off the court, we are down 9,

when he got in , we down by 18

Also, his defense is just AWFUL……………………please bench him / trade him

This was always going to be a tough game.

back to back against a tough offensive team off a mental beat down

still, would’ve liked this heartless team to compete

I was excited about that Fox/Hali/Bagley youth starting lineup til I realized it was because Richaun was out

His positioning is so bad on rebounds too. Put yourself between the big and the basket in the paint. It’s called boxing out.

Serious talk,
Bagley deserve zero minutes on court…………….

His defense just sucks………even a 2nd round player play better defense than he does…..
Whenever he is on court, the opponent just score on him easily..

We have to learn to defend. Can’t give up 66 in a half.

Only down 15.
Just two touchdowns and a two point conversion.

McNair has his work cut out for him to fix this mess. We need an athletic, shot blocking 5 and more 3 and D wings of the magical 6’7-6’9/7′ wingspan variety.

Sadly, the Kings could have afforded Christian Wood this past offseason. Amazingly, the Pistons could have easily kept him, but chose to spend on Plumlee and Delon Wright.
