And Wes has 9 points already. Guess he's okay.
Blazers up 16-11 after a Wes Matthews 7-0 run.
Matthews grabbed at his injured right hand after making a layup in traffic. But then he hit a corner three on the next trip.
Robin Lopez with the full "mouse in the house" experience. Posts up McLemore, gets past him and dunks plus a foul.
"From Greenfield Montessori: Carrrrrrrrl Landry" Kings announcing players elementary schools? Pretty cool.
Pretty good crowd at Sleep Train Arena considering no Boogie and it's a sunny 60º in Sacramento.
The Kings have an arena safety promo wherein Scott Pollard and Olden Polynice tell you to behave in between Dumb & Dumber clips.
Ben McLemore is wearing the D Lillard 1s in the "Weber State" purple colorway. First player I can recall rocking the Lillards.
Wesley Matthews has a brace on his right hand which he injured late against okc. Blazers hand brace specialist has been busy this year.
Freeland injured his shoulder on Jan. 3. and has missed the last 23 games.

This season against St. Mary's, Portland lost 74-64 at home and lost 68-51 on the road nine days ago.
Portland Pilots will be No. 6 seed in WCC Tournament and will play No. 3 seed St. Mary's on Saturday at noon in Las Vegas.
Crazy day in WCC capped by BYU beating No. 3 Gonzaga 73-70.
Rhonda Rousy just won in 14 seconds...
BYU 69, No.3 Gonzaga 64 with 1:23 left
Haws might have the BYU scoring record, but when I saw them play at Portland, I thought Collinsworth was the best player on the Cougars
No. 3 Gonzaga losing 60-50 to BYU w/about 8 left. If BYU wins, Portland plays St. Mary's March 7 in WCC quarters. If Zags win, UP plays BYU
Delon Wright has a little Brandon Roy in his game. Never hurried, creative and more athletic than the pace he plays at would suggest.
I was kinda sad my hotel didn't have NBAtv so I couldn't watch Suns-Spurs....then Phoenix scored 24 points in the first half. Yikes.
