Brrrrrr. Looks like Minneapolis was pretty darn cold when the Kings got there early Sunday morning.
It's been an interesting road trip and the Kings can add an exclamation point by handing the Timberwolves another loss. Both Karl Anthony Towns and Robert Covington are listed as game-time decisions, KAT with a concussion and Covington wih an ankle problem. The Kings, on the other hand, are healthy and ready to go with the possible exception of Corey Brewer, who is on the latest injury report as a "game time decision" with an eye issue.
Heart, hustle, energy and effort. We're seeing it more and more with each passing game. It is truly a joy to be a Kings fan right now, but it is not easy. When you really care if your team wins, you become a lot more invested. Every play, every missed shot, every errant pass is a dagger to the heart. A missed free throw causes palpitations. We do have one thing going for us, however. We aren't the only ones sitting up and taking notice of our Kings. We're no longer the laughing stock of the NBA - we're the talk of more than one town, and in a good way.
I love this game.
I love this team!
