Steve Ballmer is going to burst several blood vessels this season.
Meet the new homie King. Princess still in charge tho... Daddy's girl. Dogs always there for you man.
Michael Malone: “If you’ve got to take five, six, seven dribbles to get a shot off that’s a bad shot."
Emphasis in practice were drills with no or limited dribbling.
Coach Malone said he enjoyed how the Kings defended last night, especially defending the 3-pt line.
I was rooting for KC, but got to give it up to SF. Maddy Bum, Panda and Pence were too much. Maddy Bum is reincarnation of Secretariat
Aside from his assists I thought Collison was good defensively...made Curry work
You have to hope the "urgency" show up soon. In 2 preseason games that were supposed to be like "real" games, team was flat now this.
Folks loved Stauskas, who started well but shot 3 of 10 for the game.
Carl Landry had 8 points and 7 rebounds in 17 minutes. Solid bench production.
Guess what, Isaiah Thomas isn't around to blame for this one.
13 team assists, 8 from one player in Darren Collison, no other player on the Kings had more than 1 assist.
Too many players still doing their own thing on offense, or just fumbling the ball away. DMC had 6 turnovers, team high.
You couldn't have told the Kings they'd hold the Warriors to 95 points but still lose by 18. They'd be ecstatic with that defense.
The Kings made 24 shots with 27 turnovers and 13 assists. Collison (8) was the only player with more than one assist.
Giants finally boarding team for drive to airport and charter flight home. Two planes. Untold bottles of champagne on board.
Malone said the offense looked like the Kings' offense of last season. No sharing, too much dribbling, no one buying in to team play.
Malone said the Kings turned into the "Keystone Cops" in the third quarter when the Warriors took over the game.
“I think is was that 5:40 min in the 3rd quarter when we were up by one, and we turned into the Keystone Cops.” -Michael Malone
“I took some licks tonight. It’s part of the game. I’m a physical player, so I believe I can take it. But I took some blows tonight”-Cousins
Kings fall to Warriors 95-77 doomed by 27 turnovers. Full Instant Replay & Rewind soon @csnauthentic
Final: Warriors 95, Kings 77.
Kings might manage to commit 30 turnovers tonight. Still 1:31 to go
27 total turnovers + 30.7% shooting = loss
2:35 to play, Kings down 89-75. 25 turnovers for the game, 30.4% shooting, 17.6% from three, 23 made FG. As we say, that's all bad.
Kings have deteriorated in this game. Second half overall a nightmare. 25 turnovers combined with a terrible shooting night.
20 points, 11 rebounds for Cousins. Not sure why he didn’t turn to the jumper earlier in this one.
Crowd groaned as Rudy dribbled and then missed a jumper. Kings down 82-69, 5:46 to play. Wasn't offense not supposed to be the problem?
Rudy Gay trying to, and might need to take over this game for Sacramento.
Kings turned the ball over just under 20 times per game in preseason They'e on turnover 22 tonight with 9:58 to go in the 4th trailing by 10
It happened in the preseason and it's happening now ... the Kings come out of halftime looking like they went in to play 2K15
Kings shooting 30.5% from the floor, but still only trail by 12.
9 total assists for Sacramento. 6 of those by Collison. 21 total turnovers.
Make that 21. Warriors with largest lead now 70-56. 21 pts off the turnovers for GSW.
Kings have commit their 20th turnover leading to 19 Warrior points
Warriors are on one of the ugliest 19-2 runs I've ever seen to take a 70-56 lead ... and we've got some boos w/ 1:33 left in the third.
Malone coming back to Cousins. Game on the brink.
Kings have 18 turnovers, 17 field goals.
Interesting lineup right now for Kings. Sessions, Stauskas, Casspi, Williams and Landry.
Warriors go up 64-56 as they leak out to Michael Malone's disgust. First sign of Malone about to blow a gasket this season.
Warriors pull ahead 64-56. A lot of missed shots by both teams. Gay/Cousins 6 of 21, Kings at 29.8%, Warriors up to 41.5%
Casspi gets to check in. That's the 11th King to play tonight.
Kings down to 29% shooting.
DeMarcus Cousins 2/10 Rudy Gay 4/11, Ben McLemore 0/5 - Kings plagued by cold shooting (31%) tonight. Making up for it on defense.
Kings at 31%, Warriors at 37%, Kings up 54-53 midway through the third.
Kings shooting 31.4 percent...
Wow, Joe Panik said that's the first time he ever tried a glove-flip in an actual game. It worked.
Cousins just picked up his fourth foul. Landry on his way into the game.
