Yay, I missed the game and we won. Maybe I should miss more games
Yay, I missed the game and we won. Maybe I should miss more games
we barely won this game...the Kings are one of the worst teams in the NBA....their offense is dreadful. If you lock up the inside they are basically sunk since no one really has an outside shot on that team. Tyreke Evans didnt do much damage since Jared Jeffries is so longer covering him.
We could have easily lost this game.
We got lucky that Felton had a strong night offensively
But what really won it for us was that we lowered the amount of threes and drove often and Gallo played HIS game and not Mike D's game. He finally drew fouls and drove to the basket, then hit some shots just to put the icing on the cake. Best game for Gallo this season.
Turiaf was solid like always.
Amare was beast, his sequence of the block and then the pick and roll slam was the highlight of the game.
Fields was good like always.
Felton had it going tonight
A couple of players lead the team, but The Kings lack of offense really helped us.
Most teams would have beaten us.
Let's enjoy this win before we go on another losing streak:thumbsup:
^ The sad but true reality.. But hey a win is a win and I'll take it. We aren't exactly one of the beast of the league so a win vs any team is an accomplishment.
Yeah, falling behind by 15 midway through the 1st quarter... Scoring like 14 points in the 1st quarter. Hanging on to a 4-point lead with 2 minutes left against a struggling SAC team.... Doesn't mean this team is out of the woods.
All this win does is protect MD from getting canned.
This is exactly what you want from Gallo. GET IN RHYTHM knocking down some free throws and then the basket looks bigger.... Then shot 3s, but don't reduce yourself to being at the mercy of a 28-foot jumper.
STAT brought his game and led by example.
Not sure why AR was removed from the rotation. That wont make DW happy.
Let's see us beat GSW (sans D-Lee) and then take out the Clippers. Win 3 in a row and come home for CHA. That'll get me going again.
This game was sloppy in the first quarter. I mean they came out very flat, but they made some adjustments and they worked.
The pick n roll was getting used, tho i saw Felton miss the pass to Turiaf and amar'e on a number of plays. Felton was playing better but still has to work on seeing the open man in the lane. It's clear he's not yet used to this style of play but he's getting there.
Tony D needs to understand his role without the ball as the SG a lot better for him to be effective.
Turiaf was a big reason we won this game, like Fields he does the intangibles that get us wins.
This sacramento team is better then you might think. Cousins is a big impact player and Evans is going to be a great player for years to come. Omri Caspi is going to move into a role position and give them a 3rd or 4th option on offense. I suspect that in a year or two this team will be fighting for a playoff spot in the west.
Feels good to be out of the losing streak. Hopefully they can do some more damage during this road trip.
Given how OBVIOUS it is that Turiaf is a difference-maker for this team, and how his energy-presence s almost impossible to make up for when he's not playing....
You would think the role he serves, rebounding and interior defense, would WAKE PEOPLE UP. So, instead of having Rautins, Mason, Williams on the team, wouldn't it be wise to get another BIG in here to supplant Turiaf at times, and fill-in when he's not playing.
E-Dampier anyone? He would mean more wins than Roger freaking Mason.
ABCD almost has himself a platinum thread....just a few more posts
Im not sure what Dampier has left in him. Hes gettin old and washed up, larry holmes
But it would be nice to have 2 part time centers that can split the 48 minutes and bring us some defense since Mozgov is not yet ready to contribute on a consistent basis.
I fell asleep on this game in the 3rd, but I just finished checking the box scores. I'm sure glad they calm down those 3 balls, it was the main thing killing this team. I see Gallo has wised up a bit and learned that he could take his shooting to the foul line instead of the parimeter, I don't know whats more funny thou, his drive to the hoop, or the fouls these other teams are willing to give him....at this point, I'll take em.
Fields and chandler is still consistant, Douggie's D is still strong, and Amare and Turiuf was dominating the paint. After smelling that familiar stench of yester years, I welcome the breath of fresh air. Over all our D still sucks, but if we can slack up on the 3's and play these guys to their strengths (more often) we can have some entertaining games. I'm still skiptical with this roster, mainly because of how its used...I see a bunch of players who are more skilled around the basket then away from it. I need to see more of this to determine if the coach and/or the players are a match for this city.
If he can continually take the ball to the hole, get teams in foul trouble (making teams go to their backup and third-string centers and power forwards), that opens up the offense a lot.
It's easy to hate Gallo. He hasn't been good and hasn't lived up to his promise and draft position. But it's nights like this where you realize, if this kid decides to actually attack the hoop he can be a deadly weapon.
We need to be smarter with the 3 ball, realize that the outside shot will always be there. We need to attack the basket and look for better shots. This is middle school-level basketball, fundamental. Get to the hoop, take high percentage shots. When we do that it opens up Amare, unquestionably our #1...if teams are collapsing on Gallo driving it prevents centers and powerforwards from sticking to Amare like glue...
For the love of God, take the ball to the hoop. When we played well in the Denver game, we crawled back into it, it's because we went to the hoop. That said, sometimes it looks like we can't buy a layup. Hate on Mike D, but we had plenty of open layups that we missed in the Houston games. This is 3rd grade basketball - hit your layups if you want to win. Mike D isn't out there missing open layups like we did over and over in the Houston game.
You take attacks like you take dick to your mouth, naturally and by design; don't get it twisted. It's not a compliment. Your sexuality and subservience takes care of the one. The attacks come because your weak, yet like to attack others and then play the victim only to, of course, get victimized (Rape 101).
The only homoeroticism is that which emanates from your rank posts; an embarrassing smell of gay and ill-formed, blind hate. It's not anyone else's fault that when you get corrected, the stench still has to be there.
A joke like you is just dead ass wrong, yet still can't help but spew baseless faggotry even when the supreme court of reality smacks you in the face.
People can be wrong and still be quality; but you can't even take your lumps like a journeyman fighter.
You've spewed how Gallo would never change and couldn't; how little his prospects are, and attacked like a Jack Russel Terrier anyone who disagreed. Even then you were amoeba status and couldn't support yourself like legit thinkers or ppl with cred who've questioned Gallo.
Three pointers? When you got dentures did your memory and reading comp get sacrificed? I've never said **** about heaving up more and more 3s. And have said the opposite about Gallo.
All season been saying how Gallo has been percolating and showing off his unique skills to then start putting them all together. It's been a process since last year.
Your lame ass staked the little rep you ever had on Gallo being a loser who's skills, if he even has them, are a detriment to the team. What'd you say "they're difficult for a team to even use". Smh.
Gallo took 17 freethrows. The Kings constantly fouled a guy that shoots 37%, i.e., someone who can't hit a shot to save his life. I mean, how dumb can you be? HAHAHA.
I wanted to be encouraged by this "win," but it was more about the Kings losing than the Knicks winning.
Gallo looked like Paul Pierce last night..
My first-time rap-style haiku. Trillion inspired.
But only for you, he who bleeds what he thinks is orange and blue.
You to busy ****ing the mad hatter's prick
To realize the noise you be making on KO is just that,
**** n dick --
Ya you bleed, but it ain't orange n blue
Like the first time you got ****ed,
It's more of a vaginal hue --
So take that color,
It's your scarlet letter, punk
Rosy and red just like your heart before I snatched it up wit a dunk --
Ya you like balls, it's in your blood stained pic,
To bad for us it ain't basket ones,
Jus the type you like to gargle,
A lick,lick,lick --
Damn you a teabagger now,
And my rhymes starting to fly like a plane,
You're all woozy eyed below like a 2bit dame --
I start warning you now,
Unglue that dick from your head and try grab a gun --
Still can't **** wit me I'm like a relentless Dane,
You just my son,son,son --
Think its all for now,
I need some real chow,
Tired of chewing on amoeba spine --
O' that right.
Took that too when i snatched your soul and made it all mine --
So jus remember to you my scarlet lettered bitch,
I'm a supernova of brick wit no respect for you n' yo,
You hear that sound?
The pounding's almost over.
Ya, right, its tight like my flow,
It'll rhyme like me beating you,
Not a ****ing hitch --
Left hook uppercut.
Smacked you like an air Jordan to pavement, bitch
