The Kings have traveled their way across the country a find themselves in the Hoosier state: home of Jerry Reynolds, a billion or so things of corn, and the Eastern Conference’s sixth best team, the Indiana Pacers. Like the Kings, the Pacer’s got off to a slow start after playing their preseason in India, but have since come alive and rocketed up in the standings. The Pacers have maintained that heat and are winners in seven of their last nine contests and four in a row. Led by new coming point guard Malcolm Brogdon, newly extended big guy Domantas Sabonis and creepy object of Tim Maxwell’s desire T.J. Warren, the Pacers have accomplished all this without help from the MVP candidate level leader, Victor Oladipo, who is close to fully recovering from a injury that has taken the last season of his career. This game for the Kings might be playing without Bogdan Bogdanovic, who has been suffering from a variety of dings and can final find a bit more time to rest with DeAaron Fox back. Let’s talk Kings basketball.

For Your Consideration

To the Victor Goes the Spoils:

You know what, I’m not really all there today to talk about the Pacers. I like most of their players, I think the Kings match-up well for them but... I’d rather have your eyes on other places right now.

Here’s an independent site that cover’s the Pacers that Tim did a podcast with yesterday to discuss the gameplan for the Kings. Boy, independent media is just, so, refreshing don’t you think? http://the-fieldhouse.com/pacers/

Here’s our sister site in Indiana if your into that sort of thing: https://www.indycornrows.com/

Here’s the basketball reference page for this year’s Indiana Pacers. There’s lots of fascinating stuff in there. Probably could write about it too. https://www.basketball-reference.com/teams/IND/2020.html

There’s a game against the Grizzlies tomorrow and the Rockets come in hot on Monday, maybe I write about those games. Happy Friday, you hooligans.

Prediction

I, or someone else, writes about those games.

Kings: 105, Pacers, 101
