Kings 97, Magic 104: Turnovers and Threes Ruin an Otherwise Spirited Performance

By | 0 Comments | Feb 18, 2019

Turnovers (17) also really killed the Kings. Some of it was pure sloppiness, some was bad decision making, and others were just timing being off. They did manage to really cut down on their turnovers in the 4th quarter, but they also stopped moving the ball as much.

The Kings had a few chances to win at the end but just executed poorly. Dwight finally played for a while in the 4th quarter and I think his presence kind of threw off our game a little bit after having played so much of the game without him in there. The team also reverted back to too much one on one, and Orlando hit some big shots. When Hedo hit a crazy off balance three off the glass, it was pretty much over.

Despite the loss, there was a lot of good to take from the game. This team is still growing and adapting to their new coach, and now will have to take this show on the road. It is unknown whether the Kings will recall Hassan or Tyler for added depth with Chuck out and Marcus and Tyreke hurting (both went down with injuries tonight, but both continued to play), or even if they look to sign someone else. The Kings can ill afford any more injuries, particularly when this is essentially Coach Smart's training camp.
