That game? Hang stills up in Luke Waltons office. Run it on repeat on his phone, computer, whatever. That was the template of the style of attack the middle basketball that will give this team a real shot to be something this year.
I don't off work until 10 pm, so I haven't seen the game, but I'm starting to think having four starter quality guards going forward isn't a bad idea. I wanted to see how we could improve the front court by trading a package including Buddy (who's always been a favorite of mine); but now I say "let's just dominate the back court 48 minutes a game". If I was the opponent, I'd be pretty worried seeing Buddy and Davion playing against my backups.
I mean... yeaaaah buddy (the literal Buddy and all the buddies on the Kings and Kings fans honestly).
This game was yahtzee for everybody. TD hit some much needed big shots to spark the early lead and offense. Fox with the 21 points on 15 shots with 7-7 from FTA and 9 assists to 2 TO. Amazing how we drop 140 when he's himself. Holmes sent Plumlee into the shadow realm. Davion is finding a consistent offensive game developing into a great playmaker/scorer off the bench all while being the best defender on the team. Sweet. Buddy launching 17 3's is incredible... especially if he wants to hit it at a 46% clip.
This shows the offensive upside of this team when everyone decides they all want to be awesome in the same game. Pretty dang cool.
Oh and Harkless deserves props for his quick early 7 to help us jump to an early lead. Him becoming a consistent spacer and chipping in 7-10 points regularly drastically changes the trajectory of this team.
I literally almost lost my voice tonight. Gladly!!! My first live NBA game since before the pandemic hit. Wow, what a night i chose to come to with my father. VF21 is likely somewhere special cheering us on with so much joy. I LOVE THIS TEAM!!!
I can’t wait to watch on tv next. I’m not sure if this was during a timeout or not, but the crowd definitely began chanting “BUDDY BUCKETS” and i had chills Lol! What a love fest tonight was. These guys really really love playing together and rooting each other on and you can tell. You can’t fake this chemistry and the fans can sense it!
I know we didn’t have a good chance of getting Ben simmons for buddy or Barnes + bagley and picks, and thought monte was saving face when he said he wanted to see what we had in the team he built. But after being over 0.500 after this strength of schedule and seeing buddy and HB balling, I gotta admit, there’s a reason he’s the GM and I really need to stop questioning him.
