Sacramento Kings forward Rudy Gay may have suffered a torn left Achilles on Wednesday, according to preliminary tests. What It Means: He will undergo an MRI on Thursday, and if it is indeed a torn Achilles, that will likely end Gay's season. Look for Garrett Temple, Matt Barnes and Anthony Tolliver to all see increased minutes in Gay's absence. Gay has been having a solid season, and his .559 true shooting percentage, 10.9 percent total rebound rate, 14.2 percent assist rate and 18.2 player efficiency rating are all improvements over the numbers he posted last year, though his...

Playbook to beat the Sacramento Kings

Playbook to beat the Sacramento Kings

The Kings aren't hard to beat Sactown Royalty as acquired an opponent’s scouting report on the Sacramento Kings. It details the complex schemes and intricate ways that other teams prepare to beat the Kings. It's a fascinating look at just how complicated NBA schemes are. Go over screens set by DeMarcus Cousins, not under. By going over, Cousins will pick up quick fouls when he enevitably hip checks the defender passing by. Quick foul trouble will remove the Kings’ biggest threat. Leave Matt Barnes completed unguarded from beyond he arc. He’ll never stop taking threes, even when he...

Kings list Rudy Gay (hip) as doubtful

Sacramento Kings forward Rudy Gay (hip) is doubtful on Wednesday night against the Miami Heat. What It Means: Gay has played just once since straining his right hip flexor on December 12, and there hasn't been much sign of progress. Matt Barnes has played well in recent games and Arron Afflalo dropped 19 points on Tuesday, so they could be worth a look as streaming options. It's worth noting that the Kings have rested Barnes on back-to-backs before. Ahead of a five-point outing Tuesday night, Barnes was averaging 16.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 3.0 3-pointers in the...

It’s time to stop! (playing Matt Barnes)

It’s time to stop! (playing Matt Barnes)

Coach Joerger is relying far too heavily on a veteran forward that is playing some of the worst basketball of his career. If there’s one thing that Coach Dave Joerger has been relatively consistent about in his short tenure as head coach of the Sacramento Kings, it has been keeping his rotation relatively short. Although the rotation has been wildly inconsistent as Joerger searches for answers at several key positions, he doesn’t like going too deep into his bench if he doesn’t need to. One player that he keeps coming back to however is veteran Matt Barnes, who is 5th on the team in...
