our Kings should feel very good about this hard fought win at home
Too busy eating crow. ..
HIGHLY needed - indeed - pull them away from the early abyss of complacency.
I prefer Troll Embiid myself
More kudos to Fox. I didn't realize he was the one who kept Simmons from making a shot on their last possession. Damn...
Fox the Process
I think Temple guarded Simmons. Fox closed out on Redick.
I got respect for Vince, but aside from his play, Mali is whose minutes he has at this point..
29 assists is a great number. That’s how you win. 21 in the first half was unbelievable.
They showed the replay. You're right. Temple was on Simmons, who kicked over to Reddick who was smothered by Fox.
I like it when I'm in complete control of the conversation. WHAT A GAME!

Joel Embiid was absolutely shut-down by Willie Cauley-Stein tonight. No more evident than on that final play. Very encouraging for WCS
He's a suiter
edit: Kosta has to get big credit as well. His defense on Embiid as well as overall was great. Like I said earlier, that elbow from RW to Kostas' face seemed to light a fire. He didn't play another minute after that blow until tonight, and he showed some fire
To be fair, Kosta looks better shutting down elite big men than he does having to try to find his way against a variety of small balling teams.
Justin Jackson looked like a completely different player tonight
I think the biggest difference tonight was his shots were finally falling
Yep, which built his confidence and he started hitting some tough shots too.
And let us NOT forget the clutch 3 point play that put us in position to win in the first place. Love this kid
He could/should play some power forward minutes. Zbo going more center would make this work.
LOL. Buddy Hield was legitimately Donte-Greene-Watching-Reke's-Buzzer-Beater level excited at the end of the game
I was surprised to see how well Philadelphia played us all night. I, too, was surprised to find out that they are hovering at a respectable 6-5 record in a very weak Eastern Conference in which, if they can keep it up, they can become a top 4 or 5 seed in the playoffs.
The game, for the most part, was extremely fun to watch. If you eliminate all of the times we went to the line, and missed, then the game would have been slightly more than extremely fun to watch....
If the kids continue to show us what they have been showing us for most of the season so far, the kids will soon become adults (or..........are they already adults????????)
The Kings have themselves their own version of "The Process".
Trust the Process.
I don't like the Kings going small because our rebounding automatically becomes bad. Our guards don't have rebounding instincts. When we play small-ball, Koufos does a good job boxing his man out...but no one else bothers to, which leads to uncontested offensive rebounds. I think this is why some people think Koufos is a bad player. They associate him with being the culprit in allowing offensive rebounds because he's the only player in position to actually have a shot at it. Hield is our only good guard rebounder.
Mason-Hield-Richardson-Jackson-Sampson could be interesting.
Dude, everyone's been saying the Sixers are good this year. I'm not sure what narrative you're referring to (aside from maybe the Fultz shoulder debacle).
I recommend a little dash of tabasco to help it go down....
Clearly, I don't pay enough attention to the Eastern Conference. I thought they were struggling out of the gate this year. I stand corrected.
If I recall correctly, his shots were falling in Tuesday's game as well. Now if we can get Bog's going, which I know will happen, this could be a lot of fun the rest of the way..
There, I fixed it for ya
