DeMarcus Cousins (hip/ankle) is doubtful for tomorrow vs Portland
The mase, Ewing, Oakley, Harper Starks crew for the Knicks was of the toughest I've seen and/or will ever see.
And now it's official: DeMarcus Cousins (Left Ankle Sprain)-DOUBTFUL Darren Collison (Core Muscle Injury)-OUT
I'm hearing that DeMarcus Cousins is doubtful for tomorrow's game against the Trail blazers.
DeMarcus Cousins did not partake in practice today, but he was able to shoot around aftwards. No word yet on availability for tomorrow.
Clarification : Cousins did NOT practice
The NBA has suspended Golden State's Festus Ezeli for one game after altercation with Tyler Hansbrough last night in Toronto
DeMarcus Cousins was able to shoot after practice, but did participate in practice
R.I.P Anthony Mason 🙏🙏🙏🙏.
Gregg Popovich: (Kings) playing aggressively, distributing the ball. It's a great start, you can already see (George Karl's) stamp on things
Rudy Gay said not having DeMarcus Cousins tonight was "no excuse" for the loss.
“My belief in basketball is strong beats weak, talent will beat strong, but smarts beat all of it.” -George Karl
“Bad day at the office.” -Rudy Gay
“They didn’t make any mistakes, we made a bunch of mistakes. I made most of them to be honest with you.” -Rudy Gay on the loss
Rudy Gay was very frustrated with the execution, the mental lapses and especially the turnovers. Said "A bad day at the office" a few times

FINAL: Spurs 107, Kings 96. 21 points for McLemore, 20 for McCallum. SA: Parker 19 points, Leonard 17 points, Manu 16 points.
Kings trail Spurs 102-92 with 2:39 to go. Sacramento with 16 turnovers. San Antonio with only 5.
8 turnovers now for Rudy Gay. Yikes
Rudy Gay with his 8th turnover.
Tony Parker picked up a technical? Apocalypse upon us. Run for your lives
Tony Parker with the tech.
STOP IT BEN
Ginobili is single-handedly beating the Kings in the fourth.
George Karl going with interesting lineup here, Ben McLemore with Ray McCallum and Andre Miller, with Rudy Gay and Jason Thompson.
Kings have attempted only two three pointers tonight.
Manu Ginobili's 3 extends Spurs lead to 10, 4:30 to play. Kings trying to trade buckets with them. Tony Parker coming to life too
Just like that, Spurs 98, Kings 88.
Ray McCallum just picked up his 5th foul, Kings down 91-86, 5:50 to play.
Common foul on Evans.
Video review of Reggie Evans foul. Not sure what we are looking at.
Manu Ginobili is a wizard.
Great D & double on Leonard by Sac
Neither team has scored in the fourth quarter.
Ray McCallum provided a nice spark in that 3rd for Sacramento. Jason Thompson with a 12pt, 10 rebound game. Really effective on D.
Kings down 80-78 after three. McLemore has 17 points, 14 for Gay. 12 points, 10 rebounds for Jason Thompson.
That 3rd quarter was fun, hopefully setting up an epic 4th. Spurs lead Kings 80-78. Ben McLemore 17pts, 14 from Rudy Gay. Kawhi Leonard 15
Kings hanging tough in the third. Trail 80-78 going to the fourth.
Ginobili looks like he wants to catch a bat and bite it’s head off. Not a happy camper right now.
74-70 Spurs with 2 minutes left in the third.
Ben McLemore 9/11 from free throw line. No other starter with an attempt.
Ray McCallum has 8 points for Sacramento in this 3rd quarter so far. Also picked up his 3rd foul. Ben McLemore only Kings starter w/ FT's
Ray McCallum heating up in the third. 8 points in the quarter.
I must say, it is pretty cool to see a game coached between Gregg Popovich and George Karl. Especially in this building.
Ben McLemore with 17 points on 4/5 shooting and 9/11 line.
Spurs shot just 34.8%, but had only 2 turnovers.
Kings trail Spurs 49-46 at the half. Ben McLemore's buzzer beater helping making up for a mental lapse from Reggie Evans. 13pts for McLemore
Kings trail 49-46 going to the half after a typical collapse.
Kings down 49-46 at half. McLemore has 13 points for the Kings, Leonard with 13 points for SA. Kings shot 44.2% with 7 turnovers.
Spurs just took the lead, 47-44.
George Karl without DeMarcus Cousins tonight going deeper into the bench. We've seen Reggie Evans again and even Ryan Hollins tonight
Carl Landry picked up his fourth foul before Reggie Evans could check in for him.
Carl Landry with his 4th foul. Yikes.
