Thunder 2 For 2 In California Back-To-Back

A couple of streaks ended Tuesday night, as the Kings held Durant to just 23 points. Granted, he didn’t play one minute of the 4th, and seemed like he was happy the media focus was about to disperse back throughout the entire squad, instead of the brightest spotlight being squarely on him. Kevin Durant dunks as (from left) Ben McLemore, DeMarcus Cousins, Jason Thompson, and Travis...

WATCH: Deron Williams breaks Jason Thompson's ankles

The 2014 season has not been friendly overall to Nets star point guard Deron Williams. However, a season that has been consistently plagued by injuries and disappointment has turned around a bit for Williams, who has really come on since the all-star break. This is a case of deja vu, as Williams had a very similar showing just last season. With the new spring in his step, Williams...

The Kings are on a seven-game losing streak and sit in last place in the Western Conference, 11 and a half games out of the final playoff spot. Still, that’s not stopping them from seeking upgrades at the trade deadline, according to Chad Ford’s “Tank Rank” piece for ESPN Insider.

The Thunder Move To 10-0 Against The Kings In OKC

I’m not sure what exactly it is. I know we have one of those atmospheres that even jazzes up visiting teams from time to time. It’s been well documented that even opposing NBA players appreciate the passion that emanates from Chesapeake Energy Arena. I see how that could backfire, if our passion fired up the wrong team. I could very easily envision certain NBA players who would...

J.R. Smith for Jason Thompson? Makes Sense in My World

J.R. Smith for Jason Thompson On the surface you would say who the heck is going to ever trade for a guy like J.R. Smith? But we all know that there is a team out there that will make a trade to acquire the unpredictable Smith. If only the Knicks could trade to themselves, because we all know that the Knicks are usually on the other end of this deal; taking on bad contracts and...

Kings beat Miami Heat: Win in OT 108-103

This was, all things considered, a pretty important game for this team if you are hoping for better improved play over the long term. There were some positive signs, some negative things (too many turnovers) and the reality that Miami just wasn't very good last night.  All these things happen. But, something else happened last night that needs to be remembered: The Kings...

Assessing the Kings place after trading for Rudy Gay

There has been much talk about whether or not the Kings can afford Isaiah Thomas in the wake of the salary cap behemoth otherwise known as Rudy Gay's contract, how many shots Rudy Gay can take and still be effective, and, whether or not Jason Thompson is on the outs himself. Talk is cheap. Doing is important. That's the key single greatest takeaway I have from this trade...

Kings look to trade Jason Thompson

The Kings had a logjam in their backcourt with Isaiah Thomas, Greivous Vasquez, Ben McLemore, Marcus Thornton, and John Salmons. Then they traded Vasquez and Salmons Sunday in the Rudy Gay trade, but after acquiring Derrick Williams earlier this month, now they're looking at a logjam down low.
