    MVP goes to Gentry for not giving the ball to Davis at all in the OT and making him practically non-existent against a 40 year old

    We won in OT. On the road. Grade? A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++. Anything short of that is considered blasphemy.

    Awesome game. Not perfect, some dumb moments from both young and old, but a great win nonetheless. VC and ZBo were huge for us, and FMIII continues to impress

    I have no idea how Gentry still has a job.

    Wow. What a game. The post-game comments by Zach Randolph were right on target. Giving props to the kids and not wanting to talk about his own accomplishments. The rooks are gonna learn good things from him and Vince Carter, things that will resonate for years to come.

    Pretty exciting game.
    I'm gonna say it for the millionth time, frank mason is my favorite player. That kid is GOOD!
    Only gripe I have, and I can't believe I'm gonna say this, I wish I could have seen more of papa. I liked what I saw from him. He looks like Reno is doing him really good.

    I know it's Dell Demps, don't know how long he's been there but I think he was the one to hand out the Asik contract, so he's been there a little while at least.

    Dell Demps, and I don't know. Since the Chris Paul trade, at least, I think.

    Kayte touched on it before the game that she discussed this with Peja and they're really making good use of the D-League, and using it as it was originally intended to be. DEVELOPMENT. I think a lot of teams are gonna be attempting to copy what the Kings are doing.

    did he hire Byron Scott?

    Z-bo though?!

    Love that most of the kids contributed.

    We might actually **** our lotto position with the way things have been trending lately, but if that means our young players are balling out and developing properly under Joerger, I can't complain.

    Buddy, Mason, Bogs, and WCS have all been looking good lately. Fox and Skal still have those crazy upsides. Giles is going to join in the fun in a month.

    It'll be interesting to see what we're looking like in another month, especially if Fox gets it together and a rehabbed Giles is as advertised.

    Loved Doug's post-game comment where he says it should have been Fox and Mason instead of Fox and Hill. I think we're gonna see a lot more of the kids and a lot less of Hill and Temple. And that's okay with me. :)

    Hill/Temple need to do more on that starting unit. I’ll assume Hill will be traded but Garrett needs to pick up his play

    He did good considering DMC and Davis where out there with him.

    Most of these games I'm pretty philosophical about whether this team wins or not, but for some strange reason in this game I wanted the win badly. I'm glad they pulled pulled it out, and if you just look at lineups you have to wonder how the heck they did it. The first half made me wish WCS was around, as there was no shot blocking presence whatsoever and Pels were walking in for layups. I don't even know how the Kings defended as well as they did in the paint; they were darned scrappy, that's for sure. Hats off to Joerger in how he rotated his lineups and for having this team battle the Bucks and lose, battle the Cavs and lose, and finally battle and win against the Pels. It looks like we're seeing not just this team playing better basketball, but also some character formation before our eyes.

    Zach Randolph is what Vlade had in mind when he signed vets to bring this team along. He's everything we could have hoped for and more. I'm paraphrasing now, but in the post-game when Fox was asked about him he said that he hasn't disappointed this whole season. Indeed.

    I'll tell you what that little dust up between Randolph and Cousins reminded me of....even though it did not come close to escalating to the same level...when Dale Davis took that cheap shot on Bobby Hurley and Michael Smith stepped in to stand up for Bobby and all hell broke loose. Buddy is one of the nicest guys in the NBA and I freaking love it that Randolph stepped in and had his back.

    There was a moment towards the end of the game when the camera zoomed in on Gentry. He sat with a pensive look on his face. I'm sure he was thinking, "if we lose this game I could get fired."

    I'd like to see Bogi switch with Temple in the starting lineup. That unit needs more playmaking and Bogi is as good a defender as Temple.
