    B2B in Denver... going to be a tough game. I foresee Zach Randolph not being as effective in Denver on a B2B. Nuggets have a much improved lineup.. on paper, and are one of my sleeper teams. They have a capable big and skilled front court. Their interior and pick and roll defense, is quite suspect if you can get Jokic/chandler/ having to defend pick and roll. A good defensive set of guards.

    Dearron Fox should be able to have a field day at the rim. Skal will have a tough time guarding Milsap. If we run pick and roll with Skal he should have at least 10pts easily.

    The Nuggets are the worst defensive team in the league (strange, considering their coach). Jokic is a brilliant passer but he makes Skal look like a rabid dog with his considerable lack of aggression.

    But it’s Denver on a B2B so I don’t know if we can pull it off.

    Nuggets are favored by 11 pts in betting spreads - O/U ~ 215pts so they're guessing a loss of approx 102-113. Seems a little steep but possible. That's a fairly nice cushion of points.

    Lets see how the young guys react on the 2 nd game of b2b.......and it's in the mile high city. Might we see mason? It will be an early test on the road against a good team

    James Ham says no Bogdan tonight. It stinks but no reason to play him hurt.

    I'm a fan of JJ. Plays his game, doesn't try to do too much.

    Mike Malone hasn't changed much but I certainly don't feel jealous any longer that Denver has him. :)

    Good to see the officials are in full form this early in the game.

    WCS needs to pressure Jokic more all his passes are too easy, Gary Harris will lockdown Buddy.

    Good grief. Early impression? Back-to-backs in Denver still wreak havoc.

    I know the altitude back2back stuff doesn't go well for anyone but..

    THIS STARTING LINEUP DOESN'T WORK DAVE.

    I know it'll be 3-5 more games until any changes are made but just on paper it doesn't work and it's showing in the game, too congested and out of sync

    These slow offensive starts are worrisome. 3 points in 6 minutes? wow
  19. VF21

    VF21 #KingsFansForever Staff Member Contributor

    Fox in early.

    I'm not a fan of the "stand around and throw it to nobody in particular" offense.

    6 Minutes isn't early by normal coaching standards. But yes, early for us.

    Fox, Hield, Temple, Skal and WCS in now for the Kings. I like the potential of this lineup.

    allrightythen Well-Known Member

    Well the guys were playing too slow. I'm certain that's one problem that Fox will always be able to fix,

    WCS shot looks good when it’s a set shot he should never shoot off the dribble

    I was about to say that the Kings should know how to attack a Mike Malone defense but then I realized no one who's currently on the Kings' roster played for him

    Okay, this offense is a lot easier on the eyes.

    If Skal can hit 3s consistently he will have a nice long career.

    Like how Vince goes out and greets the young players as they come off the court. And as I type that, I'm still freaking amazed to see VINCE CARTER in a Kings uniform.

    Skal always looks like he's going to miss the heck out of the shot and swishes more often than not. Becoming a believer in him.
