Was the block by Kuzma goaltending that was counted as a 2, or a no-call.

I’m confused on that too. Score was 25-15 at the time and I was wondering why the refs were giving the Wizards the ball when Kuzma blocked the shot. Should have been Kings ball. Next thing you know it shows the score being 25-17, so I guess it was ruled goaltending?

Rattle, I do that as do others on here. The opposing announcers tend to focus more on their opponents is my unscientific analysis so the Wiz announcers have made a lot of comments about Kings and why they are playing better and about coach Brown.

No more gummies….that was a long run on paragraph.

Sabonis just crunched his shooting hand in the free throw area, yelled out in pain on the floor, shook his hand, then stood up and hit two free throws with the same hand.

Gotta say the team looks pretty amazing in person. From where I’m seated, I’ve seen good defensive intensity and smart rotations, and the offense is damn near unstoppable. We’ve also got an excellent bench, especially with the addition of Edwards.

I was worried that this team may be fool’s gold come playoff time. But seeing them live, these guys are a potential juggernaut.

Domas’ efficiency is just spectacular. If only he took 3-4 more shots more often. He’d be scary close to Jokic in effectiveness offensively.

Warriors are losing (and will lose) to the Grizzlies. Nuggets lost to the Knicks, Clippers lost to the Magic (at home; without Kawhi Leonard) today. Minnesota lost in Toronto (without Anthony Edwards).

Interesting day all around for the Kings. Decent W, too. Not that there was much to be gained by beating the Wiz really as they just aren’t all that good and you needed a W more than anything else. Good to see this team can win relying on Domas and 3’s though. That’s cool to see.
