You’re gosh dang right I ordered the Code Fox.

Where: Pepsi Center, Denver, CO

TV: NBCSCA

Radio: KHTK Sports 1140 AM

For Your Consideration

The facts of the case are this: The Sacramento Kings are second in the NBA in points per game at 125.7 points tallied per contest. The Denver Nuggets are 22nd in the NBA at just 108.7 points per game. The Sacramento Kings are 26th in three pointers made, the Nuggets are 30th. Your Sacramento Kings lead the league in pace. The Denver Nuggets are 14th.

These are the facts of the case. And they are undisputed.

Now, Denver Stiffs is gonna try to pull off a little magic act, they’re gonna try a little misdirection. They’re going to astonish you with stories of win-loss records and dazzle you with official sounding terms like Defensive Rating. They might even cut into a few strength of schedule numbers for you. They’ll have no evidence, mind you, none. But it’s gonna be entertaining. When we get to the end, all the magic in the world will not have been able to divert your attention from the fact that the Kings make baskets like a college kid wasting their parents money. These are the facts of the case.

And they are undisputed.

Prediction

De’Aaron Fox shows the world how fast he is with the reduced air resistance at high altitudes. After the game Nikola Jokic tells reporters he’s going to model his game after Willie Cauley-Stein. Akis cries when the broadcast mentions Isaiah Thomas.

Kings: 135, Nuggets: 124
