Those Wizards jerseys are horrible.
Zach Lowe disagrees
We’re playing Team Pepto Bismol.
I kinda like ’em honestly.
how did Fox not see the alley oop to Keegan
Impressive how quickly Huerter and Sabonis got such good chemistry.
I feel they have the best 2 man game on this team.
I think Monk and Bonis have a pretty good two man game too
Man how awesome is Sabonis
2 sweet dimes to Huerter
Keegan got his own rebound off a missed three
Why is Murray tasked with guarding Beal?
I can see the Wizards’ three stars searching for and getting their 20+ points apiece as the Wizards lose by 20+.
They are like the DMC, Gay, and IT Kings who each averaged 20PPG in a 30ish win season.
HB for tree!!!!!
I didn’t realize Taj Gibson was still in the league.
terence davis isnt good
I’ve always felt that TD is the Kings guard version of Omri Casspi.
Not a huge fan either, he’s too spazzy
and not only is terence Davis just not a good player, but monk has been in the doldrums for the last month
both of these bbiq questionable backup guards need to pick up the play tonight
Somebody tell Fox the game started and the 1st quarter is almost over
Hey Fox, the game started! The first quarter just ended!
I don’t remember Trey Lyles having that tattoo
Queta is not doing so hot
Monk playing too wild out here right now. Offense really struggling in these non Domas minutes
Brown is 11 players in at 2 minutes into the 2nd quarter. Not a good sign.
Kings forgot how to shoot tonight.
Great game to audition for backup center.
Wizards scoring in the paint at will and the Kings can’t hit a shot right now.
Kings defense is absolutely terrible.
Rui is auditioning for a trade. The dude is 6-6 from the floor and 2-2 from 3.
Always liked him
Same. He’s super talented.
IMO, defense is his issue. He’s got a bit of Marvin Bagley in him.
Great can we see Fox punish this team?
This is what happens when Sabonis sits.
Really rough stuff
This is what happens when we play fully healthy teams
This is looking like the Hornets game. Bad team with vets that won’t give in or give up. We’re in trouble. Kings can’t afford for Fox to show up late.
Maybe a good game to put KZ in against some of the Wizards more lanky players. Don’t want to see TD on Rui again.
My god. This is pathetic.
28-9 second quarter less than 7 minutes in.
This game is over. Great job AS caliber PG!
Worse quarter all season. Like pros playing against a jr high team.
But hey free chocolate chip cookie.
Lazy high difficulty passes all game
2nd time this homestand where a bad team on the back end of a b2b is playing with more energy than the Kings are. Kings looking lazy out here
Maybe Brown got a little too wild with the rotation? I guess he had to.
Letting the Wizards shoot nearly 60% with 0 turnovers and 34 points in the paint. Not a shred of any defense being played by the Kings this half
Worst half of the year. Ay ay ay.
Hopefully this will push Monte to go get a better backup C. Ugly
Oh for F’s sake.
This is the part of their schedule they need to take advantage of and they are staring at going 1-2 this week at home vs 3 of the worst teams in the NBA(2 of them were on the back end of B2B vs them too!). What a massive letdown after they wrapped up an impressive 3-3 road trip
Game isn’t over
Not even close. The Kings have been in this spot before, more than once, and won. The team has heart.
Didn’t say it was but they dug themselves a huge hole with their lazy play that half. Need to see a whole lot better effort and focus on the defensive end in the 2nd half to pull themselves back. Might need to see some KZ minutes with that 2nd unit because their small lineup continued to get destroyed defensively. Rui was simply shooting over the smaller guards with no threat of a contest
It’s so frustrating when people get mad when you criticize Fox. This game is an example of why he’s not an AS. He seems to have focus and motor issues.
Fox all smiles amd giggling down 20…
It’s probably because he knows the Kings are going to win.
good News is we still have two wuarters
Good new or bad news.
They need to learn how to start games playing this kind of defense.
No rebounds, assists, or steals for Huerter.
Honestly, down less than 20 given how that half went is a blessing. Bench HAS to do something, though, and Rui needs to stop making E V E R Y T H I N G.
Crazy how monk went from amazing to almost non existent.
Yeah it’s been a rough stretch for him lately
Yohana and Slamson can’t even make a layup. Kings need to come out hit in the 3rd quarter. That have been doing this this year unlike years past. Now take off those ugly sweaters Kings and start ballin.
Was that the same basket the kings had in the 1st half???
Bad omen…I don’t think it was.
Maybe hit some free throws?..
Instead of watching the other team hit them?…
Ok Fox you just smoked two free throws. Time to stop laughing.
Do we have to give our cookies back?
This is embarrassing.
Merry Christmas from your Sacramento Kings
Dude wtf is Huerter doing?
The game plan must be to allow open 3s or foul them on that shot.
Gallo del Cielo, arriving late to the game, is less than optimistic regarding our chances.
Yea this game is over
Kings already looking ahead to their Xmas break I guess. Really bad week for them and now they got Denver for 2 straight after the break.
Call up Marc Gasol. Last i heard he’s still playing in Spain. 2nd unit grounds to a halt when Domas goes out.
How is this team 4 games over .500 lol
Why are the Kings pumping 50 cent so much?
We need to get some STOPS!
cant trade baskets down 20+!
Game over. Kings just can’t get 5 games above .500
How embarrassing. The night before Christmas Eve, a Friday night and a packed house.
Every player on the kings should feel absolutely embarrassed by this game. Empty rhe Damm bench and send the starters a message.
Give them a few more minutes…
Until they are down 40?
WTF is Huerter doing? Answer: Not much.
Huerter is not the problem.
I didn’t say he was THE problem but he’s PART of it. He has no stats besides 12 points.
Oh my bad, he has 3 turnovers.
They are all part of it. I just feel there is no one to call out. This is a team/system issue on defense.
All of them are the problem tonight
It’s it Friday yet?
Friday the 13th?
Hope the fans boo them
Wiz at 60% FG. Let’s see if they cool off and if the Kings can make it interesting.
They need to attack, get to the line, and slow this thing down a bit.
And make free throws 🤣
Agreed. Wizards need to stop hitting shots, also
what’s going on? I missed everything since somewhere in the 1st quarter.
Uh. Nothing. This is fine…
You’re probably the happiest person in the room. Let’s put it that way.
Crazier things have happened. Let’s go BEAM team!
I’m ready! Let’s do this!
okay, well, still time left to go on a run
Kings just need to keep playing to the paint. Attack and draw fouls. Most of all…get some stops.
Wow. Domas 1 assist away from a triple-double.
Cut the lead so we can light the beam
we cut the lean by 1 point that quarter. Let’s goooo
No no Barnes!
So what happened to Metu? Seems like this would have been a good game for him in terms of matchups.
I’m in the mood for a Christmas miracle. C’mon, Kings. Hit the gas.
I’m with you.
Opponents continue to shoot the lights out against the Kings. Obviously defense has something to do with it, but even on closely contested jumpers bench warmers seem to have unreal shooting nights.
Frustrating for sure.
I think it has to do something with Arco Arena and burial ground. I seemed to have noticed that too.
Our bench hasn’t been good these past few games.
Holmes is unplayable and Queta was pretty bad
Holmes never got better since he got paid and Hali left.
Queta just needs lots of minutes in the G League. The game is too fast for him right now
Yeah he needs more minutes in the G-league.
He’s been in the g league ever since he got drafted
Every since Brown said Monk should get 6th man of the year consideration Monk has been terrible. It seems like he’s trying too hard to make things happen instead of letting the game come to him.
Omg. KZ made that layup to hard for no reason. Kings could have closed the gap these last few possessions.
Huerter’s first rebound!
So many missed free throws….
Kings could have kept it within 10 and they would have had a chance.
clank clank clank clank clank
Yeah….how many missed baskets just this quarter?
You’re gonna have a bad shooting night every once in a while. The thing that’s really upset me has been the non existent interior defense and the carelessness with the ball.
There’s always a degree of luck to shooting, but limiting turnovers and protecting the basket you can (and should) do each and every night.
Don’t disagree. Of course, but yeah, it doesn’t help when your star AS caliber PG doesn’t show up. The Kings haven’t really done anything well tonight.
Season of giving layups or something like that.
Tough when they get 4 chances on 1 possession and can’t convert.
I liked it better when we were blowing out the Lakers. Can we do that more?
Tell us the benefit from this game Kayte. 🤣
Monk hits one 3 and Wizards call a TO
Hopefully Keegan works on scoring in traffic. He’s awful inside right now.
Remember when we were anointing him ROY after a few preseason games?
Yeah, can we tell him these are all preseason games?
TBF Keegan will finish top 3 in ROY voting, above Ivey.
We’ll have to wait and see.
I wasn’t necessarily bashing Keegan. There’s a lot to like. But I swear he gets blocked more than any other NBA player. He’s basically ineffective inside 10 feet.
This is a play-in team (at best). Sorry to say that. I thought maybe they could get 6th or better. Not this season.
Hoping for more
They could pull out one against Denver because they play to their competition.
Wasn’t this supposed to be a scheduled loss for the Wiz? I want to talk with whoever is in charge of scheduled losses!
Pull the starters Brown. JFC! DAMMIT!
yeah, give HB a rest
Should have pulled them a long time ago.
With you. I feel they should have been pulled at least by the 5:30 mark.
Seems over. How about Chima?
There’s still time
Sabonis went straight to clubhouse. Shouldn’t have even been on the floor.
i always wonder who gets the DPOG chain after such a game.
I think you have to win for there to be a DPOG
On the one hand I get that, on the other hand it kind of signals that you don’t care about good D in losses?
Isn’t part of the idea getting consistent effort on that side of the ball?
Fitting that it broke last game
