This is the true measuring stick for a team on the road. Both teams are rested and healthy... and we lay an egg. Both players and coaching decisions were terrible. It feels like every big road win we get comes with an asterisk... best player is out or team is playing a back-to-back after 2 OT
Tonight was just a rare off night for the Kings. I agree that they didn't play like a team that wants to make the playoffs. Hopefully they will get a severe ass chewing in the locker room, and that this loss will make us stronger for the rest of the season. The game started off so promising too with the huge lead we had.
Kidding aside, I think he did see a unit that he might be able to go to with Brewer and Barnes out there. I'm sure he continues to bang his head on the "go big" brick wall like usual even though he did say the small lineup was what he was going with from here on (heard that before! haha) but playing small clearly looks like the best possible unit on both ends most of the time.
