Kings up 101-84 2:47 left. Was curious why DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay remained in the game. After timeout they're headed back out.

You guys notice in recent games the Kings have been dunking like crazy? My Friday dunks are proving to be inspirational.
Rudy Gay just made Kevin Seraphin look silly....just plain silly. Rudy Gay dunk &1 gives him 23 points on the night.
Rudy Gay with a crossover and hammer over Seraphin.

9 points in the third for McLemore after none in the first half.
Cousins just crossed over Nene and drew the And-1. Nasty move. Cousins with 18 and 6. Kings trading baskets with the lead.
Poor Nene. Centers aren't supposed to get crossed up like that, but most centers don't have a crossover like DeMarcus Cousins.
Kings are up 75-56. Let's see what they learned from their big lead in Washington ...
Casspi is making things happen with his hustle.

Pierce's shove in the back on Casspi earns him a flagrant foul.

Casspi just flew into the stands and flattened a few people. Probably a flagrant 1 on Pierce. Maybe more.

Reggie Evans obliterated Bradley Beal on the screen.
Ruled common foul on Reggie Evans.
Reggie Evans just cleaned Bradley Beal’s clock on a pick. Clean, but called a foul.
Baby races and then wiener dog races at the half.

DeMarcus Cousins picks up 3rd foul already. Probably not going to see him the rest of the half
Derrick Williams continues to put on an aerial show inside Sleep Train Arena. A game removed from his play of the night against Charlotte
Kings with a 39-36 lead, 8:40 left in the second quarter.
I think D-Will got inspired by seeing my dunks.
This version of Derrick Williams is a lot of fun to watch.
So now we get "My Name is D-Nice" when Derrick Williams makes a jumper?
A baby just turned on the jets and blasted by all of the other babies for the win. Shocking turn of events. Think Tyus Edney UCLA.
Baby races at Sleep Train FOR THE WIN. That was awesome.

Derrick Williams on these lobs tho....
Derrick Williams is starting his own poster company. Sorry about that Drew Gooden.
beautiful lob from Rudy Gay to Derrick Williams
Among the silver linings of these closing week: Rudy Gay no longer confused. In Karl's system, is getting easier shots, moving ball, fluid
Second foul on Cousins brings Jason Thompson off the bench
Spattering of boos for Ramon Sessions when he checked in. Kind of a surprise.
Really? Booing Ramon Sessions? Not like he wore a Sonics hat today
Booing Sessions? Come on.
