Fox off to an incredible start. Would love to get this kid a co-star to alleviate some of that pressure we've forced on his shoulders.

Refs testing the kings early with some really trash calls

3-3 with Gentry.

Team seems to be settling in now. Helps to be hitting our 3's. Too many turnovers, some from bs ref offensive fouls.

If we can get this one, Magic coming up. Could feel a whole lot better in town soon. Need to do well in the 4th. I can accept a loss tonight, but not another collapse.

So Gentry makes a change at halftime, Thompson up early in the second half. Wonder what he saw?

Len was largely unimpressive. 1-6 shooting and a -3 in the box score. I was far more satisfied with Thompsons effort.

Curious to see how the rotation plays out with barnes/harkless back. I think bagley/metu have earned roles.

I'd prefer

Bigs - Holmes, metu, Bagley
Wings - Barnes, Davis, buddy
Guards - Fox, Hali, Mitchell

Then use harkless and Thompson situational when needed.

Thompson ended up pretty productive. Len did look a little off, so I think you are right.

I've been pleased with Bagley and Metu lately.

When Barnes comes back that's less available minutes, I don't really see much use for Harkless if they continue to play decently. Some deep depth in case someone gets hurt.

The platoon with Len & Thompson when needed is fine I guess.

Jones has been ok as well. If Bagley keeps playing this way, I'm going to have to wonder about Walton & him. Also was nice to see Gentry stick with Davis when he was hot. I don't think that happens with Walton.
