    Nunn and TA still out.

    Apparently, just reading that Nunn might be out for awhile.

    Hoping Trevor is back in December.

    We suck donkey balls. We need triple doubles from Bron and Russ playing nearly 50 minutes and a triple overtime to even have a chance against a mediocre team missing 3 main players. Awful.

    We rebound like a wnba team.

    Too many fruit cakes on this team.

    Still not even close to a playoff team.
    For all the experience this team has, they play a very dumb brand of basketball. They don’t play to their strengths. They rely on jacking too many threes.
    There is no offensive system.
    They don’t box out and thus, are a terrible rebounding team.
    Frank is going to get canned, but it’s not going to help.
    I sure hope LeGM doesn’t get to pick the team again this summer.

    You had 4 Hall of Famers play 40+ mins and still could not beat these Kings. Pretty close to sticking a fork in this group

    We just won a Championship a little over a calendar year ago with LeBron and AD. The Kings have never come close to even the Finals.

    That's irrelevant. This season we are not much better than them as this game and respective records indicate. Oh, and we had the 5th easiest schedule. They had one of the toughest, I think 6th.

    I didn’t watch the two extra overtimes. But I watched the end of regulation and the first overtime. What on earth is it with us settling for threes to finish the game. You have Lebron and Westbrook who can attack the basket damn it!

    Lebron did it tonight and it pisses me off. Attack the basket, score or get some free throws and ice the game.

    He most certainly didn't, save for the second OT. He shot like 2 for 10 or something... on 3s.

    Lebron drove to the basket a little bit more in the 2nd OT and just ran out of gas in the 3rd.

    But it shouldn't have even gotten to overtime, our boys had a 13 point lead in the 4th Q and choked it. SMDH

    It’s just so frustrating, I’ve seen 3-4 games now where we have the last possession and it’s Westbrook or Lebron hoisting up a three. They aren’t Lillard to be doing that crap.

    Like you said Rock, we shouldn’t be going to overtimes.

    This and our habit of coasting when we feel the game is under control - examples tonight and twice against OKC. The effort is clearly not good enough.

    I have to also call out AD and Lebron. I thought Melo, Monk & Westbrook all brought it tonight. Meanwhile AD and Lebron went 2/18 from three. That’s just resting on outside shots because they don’t want to expel energy during the regular season.

    Russ actually has been nothing short of spectacular the last several games, IMO. Played controlled, hustled for rebounds, didn't settle.

    The rest of them, excluding AD on defense, should f*** off.

    this team isn't going anywhere
