yeah, not doing this right now. Quite angry, and I have my high blood pressure to think about. Tonight I'm going to blow off some steam playing computer games. I'll post my thoughts on this debacle in the morning. Link to Boxscore Barnes ( C ) -- started off the game AGAIN refusing to stick to the three point shooters. Either bad career long habits, or bad scheme, but either way, Matt is a slow learner. Again got yelled at and more focused on that end, and a decent production game, but always felt sloppy. His coming back in in the mid 4th for Tolliver actually hurt us. As did a late T. Cousins ( D- ) -- We lost this game for many reasons, Cuz was only one of them. But this was an unacceptable distracted fail in a game in which he literally should have had a chance at 50. Of course the teammates weren't helping since I can throw a better entry pass. He wasn't happy with the refs. But generally he did not bring it, got grumpy and distracted, and his late return actually hurt us, not helped us. Featured Grade Koufos ( C- ) -- Trying to remember was he really in this game? Oh yeah he started and had a quick block. Then in the course of 3 stints on the court for a total of 15 min, did nothing in the 1st quarter, hit his famous hook shot in the 3rd and a put back in the 4th along with 4 reb and 2 ast. Only 1 TO was good again but generally upheld his "yawn" moniker. Unfortunately no real contributions to terrible first 3 quarters for Kings getting is poor grade. -- Cruz McLemore ( F ) -- ridiculously bad in the first quarter and never invited back to repeat the ridiculousness. Collison ( D ) -- handed his lunch by both Dragic and Tyler "Superstar" Johnson. Joined the Lawson idiocy by blowing an absolutely critical break in the final two minutes by being a selfish idiot rather than a PG, and forcing up his own layup, which was blocked, rather than dropping the ball behind him to a wide open Barnes runnign the lane. Killer play for no reason. ------------------------------------------------------------------- Featured Grade Tolliver ( B- ) -- Anthony was our the first player off the bench and was also part of the 5 man wrecking crew that dismantled our 19 point deficit. On defense Tolliver had trouble with J. Johnson, getting beat several times and leading to a foul on Cousins at one point when he tried to cover for him. He did have some decent sequences though including a good one on Luke Babbitt after we had taken the lead back. On offense he started out with a 3 midway into the first quarter, but only shot and missed one more from downtown in this one. Getting most of his points from half hooks and working hard in the paint, Anthony finished with 14 points and a +16 which lead the team. Only 3 rebounds but one of his 2 assists was a sweet behind the back bounce pass to a cutting Temple to start the 4th quarter and cut the lead to 4 points. -- Suicide King Cauley-Stein ( C+ ) -- actually I thought he looked better and more engaged in his 2nd quarter stint. there were a couple of minor events but nothing serious. He got a good hustle board on the o-glass. Hit an unlikely midrange jumper. He didn;t hurt us this time. Temple ( B ) -- of course as per usual was a big key in our shining moment of the game as we hustled and DEFENDED -- wow, unique concept -- our way back into the game in the late 3rd/early 4th. But maybe as his own part in the malaise, kept making dumb errors, especially by fouling people who did not need fouling. Afflalo ( B ) -- played the bench hero again in a great first half stint that helped us survive the teamwide malaise. But with Ben an utter fail, we turned to him to start the 3rd...and again he and Cuz did not work. They just do not work together. Never able to regain his first half magic, with or without Cuz, and hurt as much as helped after the break Lawson ( B ) -- some extra credit for coming back, with no mask even. And By far the more dynamic of our PGs. Part of the hustle crew again. But also got his butt kicked on defense by the Miami guards, and gave Collison unfortunate lessons on how not to run a break as he got selfish, got blocked instead of dumping the ball off, and triggered another Miami break.
