    I think it is only fair we sit out Monroe now. I mean the Kings can’t let us lose too many more games than them now can they SMH

      don’t get overconfident about sactown.  they have a lot of young guys who can hoop and if they play their game – thornton, evans, thompson, thomas, even fredette – they can still put a thumping on the pistons.
      i’m kind of curious as to who is going to stop thornton.  
      he could easily go off for 30 points.  biggest problem for him sometimes is just getting on the floor, cause there are lots of other options.  but if he gets hot, the pistons better have a game plan.

        Probably Stuckey since he currently is our best defensive guard… Knight will have his hands full if he is put on Evans though (two former Calipari guards again.. hopefully he doesn’t get torched again)

      He’s been great over his last three.

      Although, about tonight, it certainly didn’t hurt that the Kings inexplicably tried to defend him with the 5-foot-7 Isaiah Thomas for parts of this game. Stuckey did well against Thornton/Salmons too, but I have no clue why Sac was trying to put Thomas on him.

        Come on now, are you trolling?

        He’s had five game stretches better than this one in each year he’s been in the league, save for his rookie year. I’ll be ready to say he’s part of the backcourt of the future if he plays this well for an entire season.

        Oh, and the Kings might have the worst defensive backcourt in basketball, so Stuckey/Knight played well, but the lack of D certainly didn’t hurt their stats either.

    As talented as they are… Mateen made a great point at half. The Kings do NOT want to play any defense. At all. 

    It has been fun watching Ben vs. Demarcus these last couple possessions.

    Tayshaun can be gross sometimes. At least we didn’t sign him to a multi year deal.

    I bet the Kings will look great with Davis next year.
