6-6. I'll take it.


We could have been looking at maybe only 1 or 2 loses if we had a legitimate back up center to begin the season with.

The exciting thing is that we are putting up points but the offense doesn't look like its clicking yet. The ball dies a lot. We are a top 10 team in offense and there is still a lot of room for improvement.

Just imagine what would happen to the flow if our PGs can hit their open shots.

Hart is far and away our best young player....he needs to start. I’m a huge Lonzo Stan but sometimes I feel as if I care more about his success then he does.

Chandler, Hart, McGee, lance and Lebron all looked good tonight....everybody else was meh.

This was a very ugly game. Thanks for the win but come on now.

We shot 41% from the free trow line. Smh. What's up with those guys.

3 point shooting was salvaged by Lebron otherwise it would be a macabre stat line.

Kuzma shooting is very overrated in my opinion. His mid range game is non existent. He is all about slashing and dunking otherwise don't rely on his inconsistent 3 point shot.

Ingram is honestly becoming the player he is on 2k. Good eye test rating and then average (if that much) stats.

Lonzo.. Well... Trade him. Enough with him. Some people here might accuse the coaching for his atrocious shot. It's always someone else fault right? There is a reason why he plays 20 minutes a game and this is it. His shot is garbage.

Chandler was excellent and i'll give him the MVP once again. He played stellar defense in a bunch of occasions that allowed us to make runs and distance ourselves.

Our defense improved a lot today. But i am not sure how much of it is because the Kings are bad. I'll take the effort anyway.

The Kings are utter garbage. Except for Fox who is better than everyone on our squad not named Lebron.

Just imagine how further would we be if we had drafted Fox instead of Ball. Magic doesn't turn everything into gold. He also screws up big time like every other human.


You seem unsatisfied..

#ChandlerEffect

Chandler really put some serious backbone into that 2nd unit
and into the 1st unit too, considering how much time he's played with them too

Chandler has made a big difference for the defense He's been outstanding

No doubt! Tyson has energized the entire team with his solid veteran play & leadership; particularly on the defensive end.

I forgot to add in that his work on the Offensive glass has been pretty incredible too.
He's even got Javale imitating the patented "TC Tapout" too

I am happy for the win and the defense among other things. But Ingram and Lonzo, as well as our shooting is concerning.

Am i wrong?

Imagine being defended by Brandon with Mcgee or Tyson anchoring the backline. That is tough for any offensive wing player (see Buddy Heild). I am really excited at the potential of this team.

Compared to the Cleveland vets from last year, our vets are a breathe of fresh air, I think Rondo still has another level he can get to with this team.

Both JaVale & Tyson are really exceeding expectations.

Amazing how Lebron gets 25-30 points game after game while playing at half speed most of his minutes.

This entire team has another level or two that they have to reach in order to be a legit contender but the pieces are there for us to make a nice run into the playoffs.

I think he does care. He's just a bit fragile mentally and goes into a shell when things start going wrong for him.

Not sure who did that and still put up amazing stats? Maybe only Michael Jordan and Tim Duncan if I had to guess.

yet we still won by 15. It's not a big deal as long as we bring today's defense to every game. FT shooting only matters if it's a close game.

Man I thought Lebron was going to put some shades on and grab himself a drink with a umbrella in it standing out by the the 3 point line.

That shooting...yikes!

But I will take a win against that team in Sac, giving up only 86 points. That’s significant for this team.

Most impressed with the wins @blazers and @Sac. The Kings have been bludgeoning some teams. Their attack is no joke.

Lakers finally played well defensively. Hopefully we can build on this and continue to improve as the season progresses.

21 pts and 22 boards from our centers. Balanced 23 minutes each for McGee and Chandler as well. Our obvious weakness has suddenly become a strength!
