According to James Ham, recently added players are active tonight? I’m hoping so. I’m also hoping Kyle Guy continues to get minutes.

I like guy, but I don't see it. I was in favor of playing him over Joseph, but with Fox, Hali, Davis, Wright, I just don't see where Guy fits in.

The team is playing noticeably slower, especially the 2nd unit. The new bench unit is bringing a much better defensive effort than we’ve seen from the previous iterations. Davis was missing shots, but his defensive activity and ball handling were very welcome. Delon Wright looked fine. Harkless looked like he hasn’t played basketball much lately.

Hopefully we see a better 2nd half overall.

Love Metu, so excited for this bench to get acclimated. Going to be a huge improvement.

Ya but it's to be expected. Honestly we ran a lineup of Hali, Wright, Davis, Harkless, Metu. Our rookie, 3 New guys, and 1 guy who missed awhile.

If Walton had half a brain he would keep 1 of fox or Barnes out there with the bench to stabilize the unit.

I'm not going to fully judge until these guys have had time to get acclimated

Refs aren't calling anything.

Walton cannot coach to save his life.

What a shot by Barnes. Could not have happened to a better guy. That was awesome. Some real Laettner vibes.

Fox is special. Barnes is cool. Tonight they made it happen in the crunch!

Bench was discombobulated

Like Metu over whiteside

Not impressed with Davis

Harkless should be a tenth man at this point who hardly plays

Return to Sacramento Kings
