    Rudy Gay came to the locker room to retrieve his belongings in a walking boot and on crutches.

    First and foremost, thoughts and prayers for Rudy for a speedy and complete recovery. #GetWellRudy

    Now, about the game...

    The Kings are dropping like flies. Looks like the rookies will get some minutes purely through attrition.

    Boogie made an interesting comment in the locker room after the Pacers game. He mentioned "finish the season for Rudy." Not sure how to say this, but if that can motivate the team it could be interesting.

    Sean Cunningham ‏@SeanCunningham 27s28 seconds ago
    DeMarcus Cousins said losing Rudy Gay to injury could bring Kings team closer together than before.

    Why is it that every time Rudy is out, Omri is also suffering from some condition? :mad:
    I wonder if he'll try to speed up his return, to help out Cuz and the team.
    (Risky, if he does)

    A true case of bipolar disorder...

    We lost 8 of our last 10 in this last depressed period,
    after winning 6 of 8 in the previous, manic, phase...

    The good news? We're going on the road,
    to play back-to-back,
    against hungry Grizzlies and a raging Bulls,
    With our 2nd best player out indefinitely,
    (And the replacament in his position out for a week or two)

    Think you know how it's gonna end?

    Time for the Kings pull it together on the road. Rudy will be missed but the next man must step up. The team is passing better and is fairly deep with good role players. Those two things are interconnected because the best way for those role players to get open shots is to pass the ball.

    GO KINGS!!!!! BEAT THE GRIZZ!!!!!

    How many stupid turnovers will we see over 20?

    Stop it. Is it a coaching or concentration issue? Seems lack of effort at times

    Hrm...according to Jim Kozimor on the pre-game show, Parsons will play. Guess we'll see who steps out on the court.

    Edit: Koz just corrected himself. Said they've been told Grizzlies tweeted out that Parsons won't be playing. :p:p:p

    Isn't Vince Carter like 70 years old or so?

    Lawson makes things happen with his aggressive drives into the paint. I really like his fade-away-hop-step jumper too.

    Kings only 1 turnover in the quarter, nice job taking care of the ball.

    Vince Carter would be our second best offensive player

    Not boxing out again...just standing around watching. This is how they #fightforrudy.

    So far, this unit has been outscored 11-3, with a free throw to go. And it looks like Joerger has waited too long to sub Barnes back out.

    I'm more worried that we go through 6-8 minute stretches where we can't play any defense.

    How about playing Malachi? Can't possibly do worse than Barnes.

    I think some youth and hunger from a player would do some good, even if only in limited minutes. Not just in this game but moving forward.
