2008 Kings versus Mavs

Jack and I went to the Sacramento Kings versus Dallas Mavericks NBA basketball game. This is the worst Kings game that I have seen in almost three years [Pacers 108, Kings 83 - 01/08/2006] and probably the second worst game that I have seen the Kings play at home since the early 1990's. The Kings were outscored 30 to 19 in the third quarter and lost by a score of 101 to 78.

Jack and I went home with about 5 minutes left in the fourth quarter. Other than saying that the Kings looked horrible, I do not have a single observation about the game. [The Kings were 0 for 15 from three point range!?!]

With the season almost 1/4 gone, the Kings are on pace to have 22 wins and 60 losses. This would be the worst record that they have had since they came to Sacramento. The low point of the Sacramento era is 1989-1990; the Kings had 23 wins and 59 losses. I saw a lot of those games; Larkin and I shared season tickets that year. I would almost rather watch that team which included Wayman Tisdale, Rodney McCray, Danny Ainge, Vinny Del Negro, Kenny Smith and Harold Pressley than this team.

At some point, the Kings need to forget about the current season and look to the future. The team needs to play Hawes and Thompson more.
