Last dance, last chance for a win on our 7 game home stand. Booker didn't practice yesterday and is questionable for tonight.

I remember the last game when the Kings came in focused and pretty much ran the table on us from the tip. I have no reason to believe that they won't do that again.

I'd like to see Oubre have a solid game since he appears to be starting based on what I saw on twitter.

I'm not sure how you could go through a winless 7 game homestand and have the coaching staff all make it through unscathed. We shall see.

Someone said this team was ready to take the next step after winning 4 straight. This homestand proves we're still a ways away. It has to start with defense tho. All the mistakes being make are correctable but don't seem to be getting corrected.

At least the guys are playing hard tho. I think we lose by 15.

There's a very good reason the Kings have lapped us in their developmental timeline: they have a good point guard. I really think an upgrade there would make all the difference in the world to our team.

The worst part is we could have (should have) that very same point guard. Without the McD/Bledsoe connection, we probably would have.

Ayton gets a bad rap for his defense, and rightly so, but it sure feels like when he's on the floor the team expects him to cover everyone that heads towards the paint and then somehow rotate back to the man he left to help on, and then get all the rebounds.

WCS with 7/4/2 in the quarter... sigh...
JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

My [2019-20] prediction is better than mid 30s... mark it down! — Superbone

Nice outing from Oubre so far.

Kings are 10/17 from 3PT. They’re just launching right now and we aren’t making it hard on them.

Does every NBA have 2 PGs better than the ones on this roster? Sure feels like it.

I'm tired of watching Jamal Crawford play so much.

Another game, another 2nd half I will not watch. Neat.

WCS + Koufous = 24 min, 13/9/3/1/1, 75% fg, +19.

Terrible defense + horrible rebounding = another 70-point first half.
