That was a great team. Was fun watching Melo hit those clutch threes. Nurkic looked terrific out there, good for him. That was a terrible injury to happen.

Doug didn’t do anything to get fired, so not a good look to replace him at this point. Not a big fan of Doug’s off the cuff catchphrases.

If Fox can turn that jab step into a 3 point shot he would be one of the most terrifying players in the league. It buys him like 10 feet of space every time with defenders scared of the blow-by

What you fans need to understand is the Kings started the season in India and suffered a lot of injuries this year, its going to take them a quarter or two to dial it in.

Good job getting back into the game.
 
Normally, I would be afraid asking the question which coach will make the better second half adjustments but SA doesn’t have enough talent to adjust.
 
still, if DeRozan gets untracked this could get difficult

ANITRACIST was playing very well out there, except for that block of his dunk by the Spurs’ BLACK LIVES MATTER.

EQUALITY was very big for us as well.
