Bruce Bochy said he and coaches consulted Peavy about playing American League opponent. Peavy won title last year with Red Sox
Peavy said he texted with several former Red Sox teammates within last 24 hours, receiving tips on how to beat Royals.
David Ortiz interrupts Jake Peavy's pregame media session to greet his former Red Sox teammate with a hug. Walked into room, to the podium
FINAL: Spurs 106, Kings 99. Kings shot 51% but had 24 turnovers. Cousins had 32 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists but 10 turnovers
DeMarcus Cousins got a triple double but with 10 turnovers. Problematic in the preseason. 32 pts and 11 rebs to go along with that
Kings fall in San Antonio 106-99
5 of DeMarcus Cousins' 9 turnovers are on offensive fouls. Another 20+ turnover night for the Kings who are trying to edge out the Spurs
Kings down 104-99, 35.9 seconds to play.
Cousins picks up his fifth foul, 5 offensive fouls. Tried to make a play when no one was moving around him.
Kings realized in the last minute or so they're playing 5 Spurs backups and make a run. Spurs up 100-99, 1:18 to play.
Preseason game is like the last two regular season games here. Kings look good and then go into hero mode in the 4th. Spurs up 100-93
Collison is back in but the Kings are down 97-93, 2:57 to play.
Carl Landry has 15 points and 7 rebounds off the bench. Kings up 92-91
Collison currently watching from the sidelines with his right shoulder wrapped with some kind of heat or ice pad.
Through three quarters, Cousins has 7 turnovers, 4 coming on offensive fouls.
I like Kyle Anderson. How he fell to the Spurs is one of those draft mysteries.
Kings are up 78-77 after three quarters. Cousins has 27 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 fouls.
Kings are up 75-72, with 18 turnovers helping keep the Spurs around.
Rudy's hot over not getting a foul call on the previous possession but he's called for fouling Kyle Anderson on a 3.
Whenever the Kings get the ball up quickly they are looking for quick pick and rolls with Collison and Cousins. It's looked good tonight
The Cousins chat with the ref was in fun. Well I thought it was funny.
DMC to ref Eric Lewis: "Just admit when you're wrong ain't nothing wrong with that .... I admit when I'm wrong."
Belinelli just threw a pass over my head. Not good considering I'm sitting courtside.
McLemore just led a break and fed Collison for a layup. That's a play I don't think he makes last season.
Cousins has 3 fouls, all offensive fouls
In preseason news, Rudy Gay has 14 points, 6 rebs, 2 assists. Collson has 10 points, 3 assists. Kings shot 54% in first half.
DJ on point. Now we've got "Nuthin but a G Thang." But he followed with 2 Legit 2 Quit. Kings up 60-49, 19/7/3 for DMC
Correction 3 starters. Sessions and Derrick Williams in.
4 Kings starters and Sessions have taken control of the game again. Nice to know they can handle the Spurs with Bryce Cherry getting PG time
I like that the Spurs in-house DJ was playing California Love ....
Collison was fouled on the play that was sparked by Cousins blocking Manu at the rim to spark the break
Darren Collison stayed down for a bit after falling on a drive. he's up now, Kings up 48-42
Kings have played subs most of the second, and the offense and defense have suffered. Gay, Cousins back in w/ Collison, McLemore, Sessions
Kings shooting has cooled off and so have the assists. They had 5 midway through the first quarter. They have 6 w/ 7:16 before halftime
Kings lead Spurs 31-27 after the first quarter. Kings shot 65 percent.
Interesting. With Stauskas ailing, Malone has turned to Ray McCallum early against the Spurs.
Ray McCallum is getting an early look tonight. He's in with Sessions, Landry, Derrick Williams and Cousins.
Rudy Gay is active and moving fine after rolling his ankle last Friday in practice (5 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists)
Ball and players are moving much better tonight against this version of the Spurs (No Duncan, no Leonard).
Kings are up 18-12, 5:55 left in the first quarter. Kins shjooting 88%, already have assists. Collison has 3 assists.
Someone has on a "Champs don't Cramp" shirt courtside
Wait, this Mike Tyson's Mysteries cartoon is real???? Like actually a TV show? This is real life??
Connecting flight to Kansas City is oversold. SWA looking for volunteers to spend night in Phoenix, plus $$$ tempting voucher. No takers.
Rudy Gay is back for Sacramento after missing Saturday with left ankle issue.
Omri Casspi (stiff back) and Nik Stauskas (left shoulder tendinitis) are out for Kings tonight against Spurs.
Seattle going to miss Harvin.
