Turnover Tuesdays: An unpredictable team

Turnover Tuesdays with Mr. Taylor As I predicted, the Kings went 2-2 last week bringing their record for the season to 7-12. 2-2 isn’t bad considering that they were without DeMarcus Cousins for all but one of the games, but it is disappointing considering their lackadaisical effort in a 10-point loss to Minnesota on ...

Sunday Musings: Is Rudy Gay a #2 option?

The Sacramento Kings are 18 games into the much anticipated 2015/16 season, and DeMarcus Cousins has already missed eight games. The Kings have managed to win one game without their star big man.

Kings earn first win without Cousins

The Kings were without their star DeMarcus Cousins Wednesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks. They would need an exceptional effort from Rudy Gay in his absence and the forward would respond the call, leading the team to a 129-118 win.

Turnover Tuesdays: A bumpy road trip thus far

Turnover Tuesdays with Mr. Taylor The road, man… Last week, I made the bold prediction that the Kings would win 3 of 4 last week to improve to 7-8 on the season. Sometimes I’m wrong. The Kings played sloppy most of the week, losing to Atlanta and Miami (sans Cousins) before picking up a much-needed win in Orlando ... More
