Poor defense, lack of communication plagues Kings

The Minnesota Timberwolves came into Sacramento and handled the Kings with ease, leaving George Karl and his team searching for answers on the poor defensive performance. Everything that was right against the Milwaukee Bucks was not against the Minnesota Timberwolves. A lack of practice in between games may be the problem right now for the Sacramento Kings, but that is one of many problems when the concepts of giving up on plays and lack of communication are brought up by the team after a game. The Timberwolves moved to .500 (8-8) on the season after defeating the Kings 101-91 Friday night...

Sacramento Kings vs Golden State Warriors Preview: Let's end the streak!

The Kings are on a back to back after a letdown loss. In the other corner, we have the defending champs who haven't lost all season. This should go great! The Sacramento Kings are coming off a disappointing home loss to a team they should have beaten. DeMarcus Cousins is dealing with injuries and might not play. If he does, it would be unrealistic to expect him to be 100%. So how do the schedule gods get the Kings back on track? A back-to-back, in Oracle, against the undefeated NBA champion Golden State Warriors. This should go great! 3 Questions 1. Can the Kings beat the Warriors? Sure. I...

Wolves Dismantle Kings with Relative Ease, Defeat Sacramento 101-91

You know, it'd be easy to chalk this loss to up to the standard 'Kings lose every game without DeMarcus Cousins' narrative, but even without Cousins, the Kings should be able to compete with a young team like the Minnesota Timberwolves on their home floor. The Wolves defeated the Kings 101-91, and they didn't make it look difficult. It's worth mentioning that the Wolves were without Ricky Rubio, Nikola Pekovic, and Nemanja Bjelica. Not exactly full strength for the visiting team, either. You can slice this loss a million different ways. Cousins was out, we've been down that road a million...

Cousins might play tonight against the Timberwolves

DeMarcus Cousins injured his lower back late during last Monday's game against the Charlotte Hornets. As a result, he wasn't able to play during the final stretch of the game and missed the following game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Up until earlier today, Cousins had been listed as doubtful to play tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves. CSN's James Ham has heard differently: DeMarcus Cousins upgraded to questionable. Source tells @CSNAuthentic he could play tonight against Minnesota. — James Ham (@James_Ham) November 27, 2015 If Cousins can play, that's a big boost to...

Kings vs. Timberwolves Preview: Sacramento is back home at last

The Sacramento Kings are finally back home after a long road trip. They're chipping away at the 6 game deficit they got themselves into but they're still four games back of .500. That's why games like tonight against a young Timberwolves team are important, even without DeMarcus Cousins, who will likely miss another game due to his lower back strain. Today's action tips off at 7:00 pm on CSN California and on KHTK 1140. 3 Questions 1. Why are the Timberwolves so good on the road? The Timberwolves have been a bit of a surprise early on this season, jumping out to a 7-8 start. Much of their...

Bucks vs. Kings Final Score: Kings outrun the Bucks 129-118

The Kings and Bucks got into a track meet Wednesday night and the Bucks just couldn't keep up. The Bucks have recently talked about pushing the tempo and attempting to play faster. They were successful in that aspect tonight. They played very fast. Unfortunately, they played the Sacramento Kings, who happen to lead the league in pace. The Kings ran the Bucks off their own floor, beating them 129-118 inside the BMO Harris Bradley Center. The indifference towards defense from both teams started in the first quarter as the teams combined for 73 points in the game's first period and that...

Kings Close Road Trip With Impressive Team Win in Milwaukee, win 129 to 118

The Sacramento Kings ended their 5-game eastern conference road trip with a 129 - 118 win over the Bucks in Milwaukee. I don’t want to say neither team played any defense, but the frantic offensive pace both teams played left little room for either defense to get in optimal position. It was an exciting, exhausting, much needed win considering how poor the Kings have played without DeMarcus Cousins this season (and every other season, for that matter). The Kings played a near-perfect Boogie-less basketball game. Every single King that played tonight contributed positively to this win....

DeMarcus Cousins will not play tonight vs. Bucks

The star center will miss the game with a lower back strain. Uh oh. DeMarcus Cousins has officially been ruled out with a lower back strain. — James Ham (@James_Ham) November 25, 2015 (h/t James Ham twitter)

Kings 122, Hornets 127: Kings Collapse in Fourth

The Kings blew a 17 point lead in the fourth quarter and end up losing in OT Welp. The Sacramento Kings, despite leading the Charlotte Hornets by 17 points in the fourth quarter, still couldn't find a way to bring home a win. The Kings looked like they were going to run away with this one in the third when they went on a 22-8 run to start the quarter; the offense was clicking, the defense was actually clamping down, and the team looked like it was going to coast to a victory. Not so. Everything fell apart; the Kings couldn't put the ball in the basket, they lost track of Kemba Walker and...

Charlotte Hornets vs Sacramento Kings preview

The Hornets take on a dysfunctional, but talented, Kings team. Who: Charlotte Hornets vs Sacramento Kings When: 7:00 p.m. Where: Time Warner Cable Arena TV: Fox Sports Southeast The Charlotte Hornets had a nice long weekend break, and tonight they take on the Sacramento Kings. This will be an interesting matchup, because while the Kings arguably have more talented pieces the Hornets are in a much more stable state. Sacremento is in a very weird place as a team, and a franchise. The Kings have a superstar big man in DeMarcus Cousins that at this point can score from anywhere on the floor....

Rudy Gay claims he is ready to return tonight

Should he return as soon as he is able or give himself a little more time to heal? Rudy Gay might be primed to return to the court tonight, according to Jason Jones. Rudy Gay says at shootaround he's good to play tonight. — Jason Jones (@mr_jasonjones) November 23, 2015 (h/t Jason Jones twitter)

Ben McLemore is starting to figure it out

Ben McLemore had lost his starting role after just four games to some combination of James Anderson, Darren Collison, and Marco Belinelli. He had been on the verge of falling out of the rotation completely, but due to an increased aggressiveness (we've only been saying that this is how he needs to play for his entire career), he's scratched and clawed his way back into the starting lineup, and he’s been playing some of the best basketball of his career since. The Kings’ win on November 12th in Brooklyn was where the Ben McLemore we had been sold finally showed up. He played 24 minutes...

Kings vs. Hornets Preview: Can Sacramento make it two in a row?

Sacramento finally got the monkey off their backs and got a road win on Saturday, but it'd be nice to close out this road trip with at least a couple wins, and both of these final games represent nice opportunities to do so. The Hornets are an improved team, and are finally showcasing some offense for the fans in Charlotte. Today's action tips off at 4:00 pm on CSN California and on KHTK 1140. 3 Questions 1. Can the Kings slow down the Hornets? For as long as the Hornets/Bobcats have been in existence (this iteration), they've tended to be a slow, grinding team that beat you with their...

Darren Collison should be a fantasy value again

Sponsored post This is a sponsored post by FanDuel. Lots of people enjoy daily fantasy sites. It's ok if you don't. This is for people that do. Darren Collison has been a little slow as he returns from injury. After missing 5 games, Collison has had three below average performances, at least based on what we've come to expect from Collison. His points and assists have been below his season averages. I'm not concerned about Collison long term, as he looks to be a great fit for Karl's offense. However, I'm holding Collison out of my FanDuel lineups until I see he's back to his usual ways. And...

Kings 97 Magic 91: Cousins monster game leads Kings over lifeless Magic

The Magic didn't have any life yet again, falling to a better Kings team. Looking to push their record over the .500 mark for the first time since November 6th, 2013, the Orlando Magic played host to the Sacramento Kings in a late afternoon contest. The Magic once again were lifeless, getting run out of their own building int he second half, falling to the Kings 97-91. The early start didn't seem to do the Magic any favors, with the hosts coming out flat, struggling to get the ball in the basket consistently. The Magic also struggled taking care of the ball against the crisp Kings defense,...

Kings are running out of time to be considered playoff contenders

Playoffs.  That's a word that hasn't seriously been thrown around Sacramento in a long time, and yet that was the goal coming into this season.  The Kings went out and spent more money in free agency than they ever have before, bringing in a bevy of free agents that were supposed to carry the Kings from the bottom of the Western Conference cellar to chase that elusive playoff spot. Right now, the Kings are 4-9 and the playoffs once again look like a laughable aspiration.  Still, it's early enough that the Kings definitely still have a chance if they can figure things out.  They're...

Kings 109, Heat 116: Kings continue to be own worst enemy

In what was a winnable game in Miami, even without suspended star DeMarcus Cousins, the Sacramento Kings hung close but couldn't make up for their own mistakes, losing 116 to 109 in Miami.  Marco Belinelli scored 23 points to lead the Kings in scoring and Rajon Rondo tied the Sacramento-era record for assists with 18 (and was just 1 rebound away from another triple-double).  But it was a combination of bad defense, costly turnovers and a terrible time at the free throw line that cost the Kings the game. Yes, the officiating was a bit one-side.  The Kings were called for 27 fouls to just...
