Game 36 Recap: Kings 102, Nuggets 100

One-Four Flat. That’s the key phrase from this win over the Nuggets. Flat could describe the Kings and their effort in the first half of this game. They came out and didn’t seem very interested in trying to bang with the Nuggets (aside from Jon Brockman of course) or keep them from scoring easily. One- Four could ... More

Game 35 Recap: Warriors 108, Kings 101

Editor's Note: Sorry for posting this so late. Coached last night and didn't get to the game until this morning. Then I couldn't find time to write the recap until right before tonight's game. Well, that was disappointing. The Sacramento had this game won. They were beating the Warriors by 18 in the third quarter. The ... More

Omri Casspi Proving To Be The Steal Of The Draft

This is a guest post by Sacramento Kings fan, David Ford. By the time the Sacramento Kings were making the 23rd pick in the 2009 draft, they already looked like one of the winners of the night getting a player like Tyreke Evans. He was NBA-ready and one of the best pure talents available. Then came the selection of ... More

Game 34 Recap: Suns 113, Kings 109

“This ‘close but no cigar’ is going to end. I don’t know when but it’s going to end.” That was Paul Westphal after another tough, close loss by the Sacramento Kings. It was another game in which their effort was good but never quite good enough. It was another game in which Tyreke Evans, Omri Casspi and company ... More

Vote Omri Casspi to the… All-Star Game?

I can't read a word of it or understand a single syllable they're saying but I'm assuming by the URL that this website is designed to get Omri Casspi to the All-Star Game as a starter in the West. Is Omri Casspi deserving of All-Star Game status as a rookie? Absolutely not. Has he had a better season than Tracy McGrady and ... More

Game 32 Recap: Lakers 109, Kings 108

Well, what can you do? Kings twice had 20-point leads. Spencer Hawes had 30 points (career-high). The Kings not only hung tough with the world champs but they did it without Tyreke Evans (who has been known to eat thunder, crap lightning, and father the future) and Kevin Martin. This team wouldn’t back down in the ... More
