  • The Kings got down early, and stayed down against a Warrior squad that is practically laying waste to every team in the league right now. This was the not the outcome the Kings expected, as the team was coming off of a great win against another hated rival; the Lakers.

    But there was no win to be stolen from here, as the struggling Kings ran into a buzzsaw. Despite the Kings listless showing last night, there were some performances that stood out from the rest, and we award those performances in what we call the Three Kings. So let’s give them out, shall we?

    One King- Omri Casspi

    Omri Casspi showed signs of life against the Warriors, scoring 16 points and grabbing eight rebounds. It was nice to see Casspi play the game that he is capable of playing.

    Two Kings – Darren Collison

    Collison did the best he could do against the Warriors deep backcourt, scoring 17 points and dishing out five assist. But the four turnovers were a killer.

    Three Kings- DeMarcus Cousins

    And the Three Kings of the night goes to DeMarcus Cousins, who should really think about putting a house in this space. Cousins lead the Kings with 22 points and grabbed eight rebound, in addition to dishing out six assist. It was another all-around night for Cousins.

    Naughty King of the Night – Jason Thompson

    Thompson once again makes an appearance in this space. Thompson is too talented to get scoring just six points and grabbing four rebounds. The starting power forward spot would be great for Josh Smith. Speaking off….

    Kings’ Rumor Mill

    Josh Smith was released from the Pistons on Monday, and this could be the chance for the Kings, who heavily coveted the talented power forward. The starting power forward spot would be wide open for him, and he could provide substantial relief to Cousins on the inside. So let’s cross our fingers!
