Kings vs. Clippers Preview: Showdown at High Noon

New, comments

The Kings play the Clippers at noon today and I really need to know why.

If you’re reading this, you’re too late. No, I mean it. If you’re reading this, I’d bet money that the game has either started or ended already. I don’t know why the basketball gods did this, I don’t know how they thought it was a good idea, but those crazy bastards did it. Two west coast teams duking it out at the same time as most are still finish brunch.

Let’s talk Kings basketball.

When: Saturday, February 22nd, 12:30 PST

Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA

TV: NBCSCA

Radio: KHTK Sports 1140 AM

For Your Consideration

Net in the Engine: We’re going to make this one quick for you because well... if this were a regular preview it wouldn’t be getting done until middle of the first quarter. The Kings, for having what might be their most disappointing season in their fifteen year haitus from relevancy, are playing decent basketball. They’re still giving up on easily won games in favor of last minute dramatics. They’re still missing the star that management hitched their wagon to because he’s felt a mysterious soreness lingering in his foot. They’re still nowhere near sniffing the playoffs. But, given the circumstances, the basketball they’re playing is watchable. And, yes, yes I know BIG ENDORSEMENT there. But that is all I have today.

Kawhi should be fun. Paul George should be fun. [Note to Editor: Greg, Akis, feel free to cross out which ever one isn’t playing due to the pragmatism of resting your stars for the playoffs when playing crap teams.]

Prediction

Clippers rest no one because they fear the dark, chaotic energy of the Kings. The still get bushwhacked.

Kings: 122, Clippers: 114
