Terry Stotts doing one hell of a job in Portland. He Gets my "who gives a damn, it's December, Coach of the year, so far" Award.
I wonder how many more media requests the Kings are receiving in anticipation Kobe might play on Friday.....
Saliendo ahorita a San Francisco....
Sadly, most of these folks writing about what DMC said weren't even in the Kings' locker room Tues. "Reporting" from second-hand knowledge.
Disappointed to see national media folks blow DMC's joke out of proportion. Understand though that his rep plays a roll in it, but come on.
I feel really bad that DeMarcus Cousins is being accused of slamming Derrick Rose. I dont think anyone who heard him say it took it that way
I guess jokes aren't as funny when you have to explain them
Cousins had only missed 3 games in his career due to injury. Meaning the ankle sprain is very minor and he likely wouldnt miss Fri.
Unfortunately the joke was said after a simple question in passing in the locker room, not in an interview setting. And keep this in mind...
I never saw last night's attempt at humor from DeMarcus Cousins as a slam on Derrick Rose. That's certainly not right. Its an ankle sprain
Rosie is #1 http://t.co/e3izhAomrt
Good morning world.
Kings do not have practice today. Coach gave them the day off.
Let me clear this up now! In no way shape or form was I taking a shot at drose! Stop trying to make a story!!!
Isaiah Thomas agreed with me, said final shot was easiest look of the 4th. Said 1 other wide open at FT line also missed earlier in 4th
Asked DeMarcus Cousins about playing Friday, he joked "probably not, think I'll be out rest of the season & I can get a comeback commercial"
The Kings have lost five straight games but it doesn't feel that way. They've had some really close games against good teams.
Durant goes for 27 points, 11 rebounds. 15 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists for Westbrook.
Isaiah Thomas finishes with 24 points, 21 of them scored in the 4th quarter.
OKC gets the win 97-95 over Sacramento. Isaiah was SPECTACULAR in the 4th quarter with 21 4th q points. Great effort w/out Boogie Cousins
IT tried to make something happen on the last play. Unfortunately no dice and the Kings fall 97-95 to OKC.
Thomas misses a 14 footer just before the buzzer, Kings lose 97-95. 21 of 24 pts for Thomas come in the fourth quarter.
21 4th qtr points for Isaiah Thomas. Incredible. Kings down 2 and ball 10 secs...he misses jumper front iron. Kings fall 97-95
I swear, is there a young PG in the league that has more great mentors than Isaiah Thomas - KJ, Gary Payton, Isiah Thomas, & more.
After that play, please spare me the "refs are out to get us" for a little bit.
Not sure where the foul call was, but the Kings have the ball, trailing 97-93 with 46.8 remaining. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED!
Kings ball, down 97-93
Isaiah Thomas dives to the floor to snatch up the loose ball and call the timeout. Mayor Kevin Johnson all smiles from his courtside seat.
That was an awful lot of contact on Westbrook to get a foul call. He's staring down Ron Garretson over that one.
IT is going CRAZY..He has 19 points in the 4th quarter. What a great effort by the Kings tonight.
1:35 left in the game.
OKC 97, Kings 93. Thomas is up to 22 points.
Reggie Jackson makes a 3 and a fan yells "You can't do that on 2K" .... lol
Isaiah Thomas has 17 points, two steals and just assisted on Thornton's three with 2:37 left vs. OKC. Kings trail 94-91.
OKC 94, Kings 91, 2:37 to play.
The Sacramento Kings refuse to go away. Trail the Thunder 94-91 with 2:37 remaining in the fourth.
Kings' last nine points scored all off 3's (two from Isaiah, one from Thornton). Down 94-91 w/ 2:37 to go against OKC.
Isaiah Thomas has 17 points in the 4th quarter.
Thomas hits back to back 3s, OKC 91, Kings 88
Thomas went over to J.T. during the timeout to offer encouragement after ripping him for that tech.
Isaiah Thomas really ripping into Jason Thompson for stepping over line on inbound play during Kings run in fourth. JT also earned a tech.
Jason Thompson just got called for a tech and Isaiah Thomas got on him for it. Durant makes the FT to give OKC 87-80 lead, 5:40 to play
Russell Westbrook is 6-of-17 for 13 points against the Kings tonight.
Kings back in it down 82-78 before Derek Fisher hits a shot and reminds everyone in Sac that they hate him.
Thunder are already in the penalty. FTs the rest of the way for the Kings, which could make up for their shooting 39.1%
Salmons hits a 3 to cut OKC'slead to 82-74 with 9:19 to play.
Kings have gone on a 9-0 run the last two minutes.
And the scoring drought finally ends for the Kings w/ a right elbow jumper by Jason Thompson. Had gone the last 5 mins w/o a basket.
No Cousins tonight and Kings have 14 points in the paint.
