Was Reggie Evans just yelling at someone?
Rudy Gay says NO BAZEMORE JERSEY FOR DEUCE!
Lakers are back init, 46-42, in what appears to be a defense-optional game. 6:31 before halftime.
Rudy Gay and four reserves have pushed the Kings' lead to 42-30 in the second quarter.
Derrick Williams really aggressive in the 1st. That's really what Kings fans should be hoping to see from him. Played well with Rudy Gay
Kings lead Lakers 31-27 after the first quarter. 8 points and 4 rebounds for Derrick Williams.
Orlando Johnson makes his Kings debut with the game tied at 25 in the first quarter.
McCallum's dunk off a turnover ties the game at 23 with 2:44 left in the first quarter.
Acy and Evans are in the game together. This could be fun.
Who's the better More? McLe or Baze?
Lakers capitalizing on the last two turnovers by the Kings. They're already at 18 points halfway through the first quarter.
Kings have fallen behind 18-13 midway thru the first quarter
Pau Gasol has made four all-star teams while Joe Johnson has made seven. There's something odd about that fact.
Reminder: I have to buy a Bazemore jersey if he drops 20-plus points tonight on the Kings.
Tyreke Evans getting stuck in an elevator at the team hotel may be the best story of the NBA season
Carl Landry (knee) is out tonight
If Kent Bazemore drops 20-plus points on the Kings tonight, I'll buy his jersey.
Malone says probable starters tonight are Thomas, McLemore, Gay, Williams and Thompson
Ok Q.Miller !
Roscoe's is calling me
Also, good luck to Jimmer and his family, who have all been a pleasure to deal with.
FWIW, Michael Malone came up to address media today looking like he just found out his best player was suspended http://t.co/h6bxOiHvu6
Jimmer wasn't the right fit with the Kings. They still don't have the necessary defensive personnel to let Michael Malone's system thrive.
Bulls have enough great individual & team defenders to make it work with Jimmer. If he goes there & does well, it's b/c the fit is right.
Personally, I'd be excited to see Jimmer with the Bulls. Think his shooting could help & his weaknesses on D can be hidden in their system.
Wherever Jimmer winds up, he will likely get a glowing recommendation from Kings brass. Been told they are willing to do that on his behalf.
$10K for 2 techs/ejection, $20K for verbal abuse of refs, approx. $55K lost by not playing against Lakers for DeMarcus Cousins.
Cousins was fined $10K for his two techs, picked up a $20K fine today. Will lose a game check Friday. That was an expensive Tuesday night.
You're automatically fined a game check when you get suspended.
FYI: League states there were 2 separate incidents. Punch = suspension. Fine for verbal abuse of refs/not leaving court in timely manner.
Had to change my flight to compile the list of Cousins' suspensions/incidents ... still compiling.
That Noah was fined $15K for his F-bombs at refs when he was ejected is proof your rep matters. Cuz got $20K.
This is DeMarcus Cousins' second suspension in four seasons for punching a player. Suspended last season for punching O.J. Mayo in the groin
The Sacramento Kings and Jimmer Fredette have officially agreed to a contract buyout.
I will say Michael Malone didn't look too happy before he began his availability with media.
The NBA sent the release on DMC's fine/suspension right as media availability began. Did not check my email until after avail was over.
Sadly, I was not able to ask Michael Malone or anyone about DMC's suspension after practice this afternoon.
Beverley stood over Cousins with a menacing look after Cousins sprained his ankle in Houston .....
DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended for Friday's game at LAL for punching Pat Beverley, fined 20K for not leaving court n timely manner
To state the obvious, everyone knew a fine was coming for DeMarcus Cousins for outburst. I don't know ANYONE that knew of hit to Beverley.
Cousins suspended/fined for punching Patrick Beverley in stomach & 4 verbally abusing an official & failing to leave court in timely manner
BREAKING: DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended one game without pay and fined $20,000 for his actions in separate incidents.
