What a frustrating first quarter that was. 15pts from fox on perfect shooting. His team gives up 40 piece to the **** Houston rockets, while scoring 16pts shooting 7/18. So trash

Davis back to getting minutes is a welcome sight. Second best player on the team at getting his own basket

Davis and fox doing everything they can to keep the kings in it. Mitchell and buddy doing everything they can to keep us behind.

I have been thinking what the hell has Davis done to get him minutes cut. He was tearing it up and then went out, and since couldn't get minutes.
He is one of those shooters that you need to just trust. He will miss some that you'll be frustrated with, but he can catch fire quickly.

Anyway, good continuation of Fox/Hali. I still need Hali to call his own number more often and Fox to continue to waive off screens. He's not as good in the P&R as he is 1v1.
I have also noticed a few minor changes to the D recently and finally they aren't switching on every on ball. There has been some confusion because of this, but moving forward it will put them in a better position. We don't have the personnel to do it and not many of the good defensive teams do it.

I was looking at Buddy and knowing he was having an absolute stinker of a shooting night and he hits one and he was on 15. I was shocked. I will say he continues to try on D. He isn't great on D, but he is trying, it's a shame really.
Mitchell's D was amazing though. I know your thoughts on him, but he was exceptional. If he could get a call his confidence would grow, and perhaps so would his game. The shooting is a worry, but let's put it down to rookie wall.
I reckon he is out at least 10 charge calls this season. At least Jalen Green got a couple of rookie calls in this one too to even things out. I wonder how many he has also missed out on as the refs just look to be really telling these young guys this is how it is and adapt to us.
What I would like to know from everyone is how many rookie defenders have come into the NBA nearly as good as Davion is and have had these types of calls? I don't see any defenders in the NBA currently that are as good as him, to be honest, but he just doesn't get the calls, which would make the offensive player even more hesitant to drive on him.
