KFs Prediction Game 2018-19: Going to meet the boy who got away (Doncic). Prediction is ON for game #29 (DAL)

#1
Hi everyone. An exciting night!! Another season begins with a lot of hopes and dreams
(ready to be crushed onto the harsh #Kangz reality :rolleyes:)


It's the Kings' first game of the season!!

And it's a home game -
The big bad defensive Jazz come over...

We met them just a week ago in pre-season, and it wasn't pretty...

Think you know how it ends?

I hereby launch the 3rd year of the Kings game results prediction game!



Remember -
A fan has got to do what a fan ha
s got to do...

Game 2 - First one on the road

Where would you go after you've taken some Jazz lessons?

New Orleans would be a good choice, right?

So, here we go!

...And may the Brow have mercy on our timid hatchlings... :eek:

Think you know how it ends?

A fan's got to do what a fan's got to do...

Well, for a brief moment in the first period I thought I might get lucky... Not to be. Anyway, here is my prediction for the next game:
We 111 Them 117
It was difficult to predict an L for my team. I am not used to it.

Hopefully the Pelicans tired themselves out beating up the Rockets and we can catch them by surprise.

AD is a good, long defender as well but the rest of that roster really isn't so
KANGZ 116
Pels 109
