Perfect opportunity in this one to play the youth more minutes since this game will most likely be over by halftime. Shumpert ties a career high in three pointers made.

Malachi, Willie, Skal and Big Papa should get all the Rudy, Ben and garbage minutes available!
IMO they should all be playing. Developing the team at this juncture should be priority one with that top ten protected pick hanging over the season. Not sure I trust management to play for that though

If you read the article Padrino posted about DeMarcus and the playoffs, I think it's pretty clear where the team's collective heads are at...and I agree with them. We've known from the day the schedule came out that January was going to be merciless; I want to see the whole team trying their best and staying in the hunt. It's not about trusting management to play to lose.

Cavaliers were upset in New Orleans last night, without Anthony Davis, so we're probably going to get hammered.
Yep, that did not help at all. At all. Given New Orleans is now a game ahead of us, a minor little disaster really. We get robbed in Chicago. They sit Davis and still beat the defending champs, who get pissed and take it out on us. Wonderful.

Damning the draft is the reason we are in this situation in the first place, never damn the draft...always welcome it to help you get out of this cellar that we are stuck in for a decade and more

You do it your way and I'll do it mine. We'll cancel each other out but we'll get a lot of interesting discussion in the meantime. ;)

'Bron usually checked by Rudy capable on occasion exploding big against Kings whoever on him. But Rudy did hold his on in some match ups with Cleveland. Not this time I fear with Cavs desperate to reek carnage on whatever prey in front of them. Hope it's competitive and interesting game. Go Kings!

One game at a time.

Kind of nice with minimal expectations, can just go back to enjoying basketball and not thinking/worrying much.
I agree with this sentiment so long as more youth plays and they grow and develop together. Watching all these expiring vets play? boring and unemotional.

I like aching most of our vets, expiring or not. I like seeing our kids play. But the game is basketball, a team sport, and the bject is to win. If it ever gets boring just give it up.

Hate these eastern time zone games, they are half over by the time I get home. Hoping to have a chance to sit and watch at least a half of basketball tonight. Looking for positive things from Malachi and Willie. If those two guys can start producing something positive I'll be thrilled.

Cavs are peed-off after losing to the Pels the other night. They are on a 2-game losing streak (and 2-5 in their last 7!!).

And we #Kangz are known for our streak-ending talents...
(It would really be interesting to count how many times we broke an opponent streak this season :cool:).
Will we help the Cavs end their's?

Whatever you predict will happen,Don't keep it to yourself!

But the vets aren't even better at this point. Malachi can outplay Afflalo, Skal might outplay Tolliver.. just tough watching

If I was Vivek responsible for signing paycheck to Affalo when I could have had Seth Curry for 1/4th price, I would want to know who was responsible for this decision and on what basis was this decision made and why should said individual continue to remain employed and trusted with regards to personnel decisions. Though not as egregious as letting Isaiah walking for nothing it is in the same ballpark related to swing and miss by two feet.
