The Kings return home to face the sizzling hot Warriors. OK.
The Kings have now lost five straight games, each by double digits. The average margin of defeat over those five games is 13 points. This is so awesome.
But at least the Kings are at home, where they last ... lost by 25. OK.
But at least the Kings are playing the Warriors, who are ... uh, really very hot, actually, having gone 8-2 in their last 10, most of those coming on the road, where they are 10-5 overall.
Welp, OK, here we go.
Marcus Thornton is expected to be back after spending time with his sick mother. (Continued prayers to the Thornton family.) One would hope Thornton's return would help, but given Keith Smart's trouble sussing out appropriate minutes for the guards even when he's down his two best, I would advise you not to hold your breath. Tyreke Evans' availability remains a big ol' question mark.
The game is scheduled for 7 p.m. Pacific on Comcast SportsNet California and 1140 AM. We'll have a game thread then, recap after, fan predictions soon and a super fun trade piece today.
