HoopsHype Sacramento Kings twitter
One more thing: Ranadive visibly annoyed about DMC chatter. "I don't know why that stuff is out there," he said, noting NBA is rumor mill
Ranadive added that he already appreciates Vlade Divac's leadership, believes front office is solid. Predicts an active summer, no DMC trade
Vivek Ranadive leaving after GSW win. Says he admires former team, wants Kings to emulate. Reiterated plans to build with Karl, Cousins.
And confetti falls in Oakland
Warriors take Game 2 over Pelicans 97-87. New Orleans absolutely crumbled. Warriors a well oiled machine headed to New Orleans.
Curry wasn't at his best, but Klay and Co. had enough for Warriors to win 97-87, take 2-0 lead in the series. Curry shot 9/21 for 22 points
Good coaching reinforces the repetition of scores and stops not just one good offensive possession or getting one defensive stop
Young Pelicans falling apart late.
Pelicans have imploded. Someone gave them Alka Seltzer...
Really terrible possessions from the Pelicans in final few minutes. Warriors up 92-86 2:12 to go.
Steph Curry ran into a wall named Omer Asik. Playoff foul
Marreese Speights and Draymond Green are those blue collar, lunch in a brown bag, hard-hat wearing, blue collar, construction type dudes
What a block by Dante Cunningham!!!.....no relation.....
Tyreke Evans has looked shaky battling the knee contusion, 13pts (3/11), 8 rebounds and 6 assists for the Pelicans in 32 mins
All tied in Game 2 with Warriors and Pelicans at Oracle headed to the 4th. Steph Curry with 22, Anthony Davis with 20.
On improving the Kings roster for next season, Vivek Ranadive said Pete D'Alessandro & Vlade Divac have their work cut out for them.
Kings owner Vivek Ranadive still openly admires what the Warriors have done. Very much believes Kings are not that far away. Wore Kings polo
Kings owner Vivek Ranadive is very put-off by trade rumors with DeMarcus Cousins, especially since he signed him. No desire to trade him
Won't see this often: Anthony Davis loses his footing, slips, Draymond Green helps him up as teammates take off in transition
Just spoke with Kings owner Vivek Ranadive during halftime. Will share video of interview shortly, but very interesting off-camera comments
6-1 Warriors run to start 2nd half
Multiple touches in multiple quadrants of the floor is an under appreciated stress on the defense
Steph Curry and the Warriors storm back to lead Pelicans at halftime 55-52. Curry with a 3 in closing seconds, has 16pts. Anthony Davis 14
Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive Courtside watching his old Warriors team tonight. Appears to be wearing purple instead of yellow/gold
Perhaps Anthony Davis did figure something out in the second half of game 1 because he's still rolling with 14 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists
Leandro Barbosa is taking over this 2nd quarter for the Warriors. The Brazilian Blur has still got it. 10pts early in Game 2
Pelicans are up 37-32, 7:26 left in the second quarter
Norris Cole looking like Cleveland State Norris Cole
Tremendous job by the Warriors bench to pull within 4 forcing a Pelicans timeout. As if it were possible for Oracle to get anymore amped up
Now Barbosa is looking like Phoenix Barbosa
Impressive opening quarter by Pels. Forcing Warriors into difficult shots, too many jumpers. Attacking rim at the other end. Lead 28-17.
Pelicans lead 29-17 after 1. Impressive strt from Eric Gordon and Anthony Davis, each 11pts. Warriors shooting under 32%
And still the Brazilian Blur....
Despite Eric Gordon's hot start with 11pts, Anthony Davis picking right up where he left off in the 4th of game 1. Only against Bogut now
That Norris Cole pickup by New Orleans was a great move at the deadline.
Eric Gordon is out here looking like L.A. Clippers Eric Gordon
Much different first quarter for New Orleans this time around. Started 11-4 run but that quickly evaporated
So enough about crowd noise. None of these larger buildings compare with old Boston Gaden, Chicago Stadium. Fans would drown out anthem
In all seriousness, Mychal Thompson applauds Kings hire. Vlade's smart," Thompson added. "He's going to be terrific. I have no doubts."
Mychal Thompson - father of Klay - joked about his ex-Laker teammate and new Kings VP. "Vlade (Divac) thinks he's the Serbian Jerry West."
Tyreke Evans wrapped up his pregame routine. Looked OK, buried his only halfcourt attempt and ran to locker room. He'll play
Pelicans head coach Monty Williams says Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday remain game time decisions tonight for Game 2
Monty Williams said the comments were tongue in cheek. Thought it would be taken as a compliment
Monty Williams says he didn't mean to insult Warriors fans or Joe Lacob over noise concern comments he made earlier today
Someone brought brownies into the newsroom today. Considering today is 4/20, we may have a very interesting 6pm newscast.
Toronto guard Lou Williams wins Sixth Man of the Year. Isaiah Thomas is second. Jamal Crawford third
Tyreke Evans listed as questionable for Game 2 vs. Warriors, but told media today, he'd be a game-time decision.
Beno Udrih and the Memphis Grizzlies.
Need to see Aldridge challenge that dunk even if they are down big.
DeMarcus Cousins has officially gone fishing. http://t.co/zd0GWkNNQ3
Things have gone a little sideways in the A’s game. Ventura tossed for beaning Lawrie. Benches clear.
Takeaway from Warriors Game 1 win. -Players not too concerned with giving up leads -Players amused by Steph Curry flexing as much as fans
