Joel Embiid took a day off against the Bulls so he could get ready for the Kings. Booker will be out (reportedly) along with Fultz and a couple of others. The Kings should be almost at full strength, with DeFox listed as a game time decision and Giles as the only other non--participant. I don't like the Sixers. I don't have the same deep abiding hatred for them as I do certain other teams that shall remain unnamed (DIE LAKER SCUM!), but I just don't like them. We've got this game on Tuesday and then a quick hop over to Brooklyn to play the Nets on Wednesday before heading home for a Christmas Eve Eve matchup against the Spurs. The Clippers (there), Cavaliers, Suns and Grizzlies finish out the 2017 year. There have been good times. There have been not-so-good times. All in all, we've done a lot better on the road than many would have expected. I think we can beat the Sixers. I'd like us to beat the Sixers. I'd like to see Fox, Mason, Bogs, WCS, and PapaG get some burn together with Buddy coming first off the bench. I'm not saying it would end well, but that's most likely our future and I'd like to see them together. If I had to hazard a guess, however, I'm thinking Joerger will stick with a more "traditional" starting five with at least three veterans in the mix. At the end of the day, I just want heart, hustle, energy and effort - and maybe a little BBIQ thrown in for good measure. I don't think that's too much to ask. It is a good time to be a Kings fan. GO KINGS!
