    Well that actually went better than I had expected... Our kids played well but they were facing a well-oiled machine of seasoned vets coached by the best in the biz.

    Rough game for Mason and Hill didnt really do much as well. Hield was solid. WCS turned in a good effort.

    Kozemer looks like the freaking house elf from Hufflepuff!

    I have to agree. At least there is no sign of “give up” in them. But they have been abused on the boards and the bench gave them zilch.

    Skal is MIA ? DNP-CD ? Could have used the length. Didn’t expect to win this one. Spurs are a top 4/5 team in the West. Kings are very young. Their vets played ok.

    I look forward to Harry Giles playing.
    Kosta Dufus really gives you nothing. No rebounds, no defense, no offense. He sometimes sets a screen that isn’t called illegal. He is a decent passer. But we are very soft when he is in the middle.

    Have you ever met him in person? He was host at a couple of the House Party Live events where the KingsFans faithful were invited to attend, and he looks like an elf in real life even without the sweater and point hat. :p

    And Kayte is tall!!!!!

    Solid game from Hield. Should continue to start. Hopefully, This game is a view of things to come from Buddy. Not an Outlier. Bogdan also had a nice performance. WCS had a great offensive game. But, Forgot to play defense. Both Pau and Aldridge took him to school.

    Will be interesting to see if the Spurs can make a run in the playoffs. Figure they have to get Leonard healthy to have a chance against the top teams.

    I'm following online.....but anyway remember the Clipper game?....Hield has ability to go lights-out; I guess Joerger didn't think so. Maybe wasn't to be tonight. Its a bit disheartening that they couldn't pull it in to make it closer. This Spurs team imo is not really impressive these days anyway...several of guys are close to retiring - and they will be back into spin-cycle fairly soon I think. Leonards' injury ought to be troubling for the franchise.

    I agree ! They keep fighting. I like that a lot. I will keep watching no matter how far they are down as long as they are still fighting. They may go down, but the go down swinging!

    I dont think so - I just posted about that....most especially with Leonard's longevity in question

    Are you kidding? This is one of these times when following online doesn't tell you much of anything. The Spurs we faced may not have been the Tim Duncan Spurs but they're still capable of ripping your heart out.

    True. Looks like both Leonard and Green should be back for the first of the year. I'm betting Pops isn't gonna rush them along.

    Thanks.
    They ran into a better team that was playing very good. Kings have trouble with the Spurs length

    Liked what I saw out of Bogy and Buddy. WCS gave a solid effort too.

    Really they matched the spurs through 3 quarters. The second quarter when the Kings brought in the Richardson, Mason, Jackson, Bogs and koufas was when the spurs made their move.

    Coach: I'm not gonna overanalyze. They took us to school. They had 4 turnovers going into the 4th.

    He went on to say how much the Kings have improved over the past 4 weeks. He's in a good mood but not making excuses. He's telling it like it is. We're a work in progress and they're the freaking Spurs.

    Very complimentary about Mason, saying his next level is to learn not to get in so deep that he traps himself.

    From me: It's a GREAT night to be a Kings fan.

    He has a long, long ways to go, but wouldn't that be nice.

    LOL.

    Coach: "I'm not trying to over-explain. I'm just trying to give you the Full Monty." LOL

    (I'm thinking he may remember the movie but doesn't remember what the Full Monty actually was.)

    He took one more question and then said, "Shall we leave it at that? Merry Christmas you guys!"

    I like that. And I like him. And I like feeling good about the future of the Kings.

    I LOVE THIS TEAM!

    True, the bench lost Buddy’s firepower. Frank has looked tired. Hitting That rookie wall maybe ?

    If you saw the Spurs ball movement, I think you would change the not impressive comment.

    Koufas is fine for what he does. He just can't be the center piece for the second unit, which for this game he was.

    Joerger touched on Mason in the post-game. He said they've been working him hard. I think the next couple of days rest is gonna be good for them all. One thing about a young team is they recover pretty quickly.

    LOL! Post-game showing the snowball scene from ELF with Buddy Hield in the title role. Good work by the video crew.

    I agree ! I find myself loving this team, no matter what the outcomes of games. I see growth in most of the young players. Skal and Fox really need all the minutes they can get. Fox’s injury is very bad timing. Skal has regressed a bit. Malachi has not made many strides yet. But I have been encouraged by Buddy, Bogy, and even JJ has shown glimpses. More game time will help these guys improve.

    Not that impressive?! The Spurs.?! I am trying not to be insulting. But, Take a look at the lineup for the Spurs(Minus A Top 3 player in the NBA, Leonard)
    They are one of the best teams in the league. They know how to scout, draft, and are incredibly smart and efficient. SPurs are like the Patriots, Kings are like the Browns. Pop is an utter genius. They will always compete for a championship every single year.

    If Leonard was there tonite, KIngs would have been torched.

    The way the NBA is played today, a player like Kufos, unless he’s grabbing double digit rebounds and blocking shots or shooting 3’s, is sorta a liability. I think Harry Giles will get playing time and if he thrives, He will take minutes from Kufos
  27. VF21

    VF21 #KingsFansForever Staff Member Contributor

    Um, read the post he's quoting. It was kingdivac who said, "This Spurs team imo is not really impressive these days anyway". Your point is well made and is in agreement with what parker and I were saying about the Spurs.

    I think that's the hope/plan. That's why Koufos is still here IMHO. Once we see what Giles can do, KK may be off to another team.

    Kings are like the Niners... young and making strides... Browns are stagnant and never progress

    That comment is not so much for this game, which your right I didn't see, but more in general from memory of getting pasted and laying down against the Warriors last year once Leonard went down in the playoff. This is more or less the same team, and its one regular season game. This Spurs team probably will make the playoffs without Leonard, but they aren't going anywhere without 'em.....Ginobli will all but certainly retire..... Gasol likely, and maybe Parker depending on health. That's a big chunk of their experience.
