The Kings losing at home to Philly’s backups is an utter embarrassment. Luke Walton had to go but that won’t solve their issues. Major roster change is needed. I’m disgusted watching this team. What a hideous product. No wonder the other night that dude puked all over the court. – 1:14 AM

Lots of contributions (Milton playmaking/scoring down the stretch, Drummond rebounding late) but Matisse Thybulle cooling off Buddy Hield was very important tonight.

The Alvin Gentry era is upon us and it looked very similar to the Luke Walton era. In his first game as head coach of the Kings, Gentry watched his group fall apart late for their fourth straight loss. Here are six quick thoughts from the 102-94 Philly win. – 12:27 AM
Tony Mejia @MejiaDinero
#SacramentoProud should be collectively ashamed. You gotta get Alvin Gentry that win if you’re up against a depleted 76ers squad. Instead, they let Andre Rummond put up Bill Russell numbers – 12:25 AM

Georges Niang looks gassed — he has played heeeeavy minutes during this shorthanded stretch, and he Maxey are the only Sixers to play in every game so far this season — but he’s fired up after drawing that offensive foul. But then he and Drummond cannot connect on the alley-oop – 12:02 AM

Maxey’s got to come out early after picking up his second foul. Sixers already have four as a team. Kings have three. Lots of whistles early. – 10:18 PM
Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
The loud applause interim coach Alvin Gentry received was telling. I guess the Sac fans were tired of Luke Walton. – 10:18 PM

Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
Bazley had an impressive 5-game stretch, culminating with OKC’s win vs the Kings.
In the 6 games since, Bazley has made 13 of 59 shots, 4 of 21 from 3, and made one free throw out of a total of 4 attempts.
10 blocks during that stretch too, but it’s been a struggle offensively. – 9:52 PM

Doc Rivers on Joel Embiid, said that he’s working out at the practice facility in Camden: “He passed one of the tests, I think he has another big one today. Then after that, we have to decide what we want to do. But the fact that he’s out working again is huge.” – 4:18 PM
