This is probably the last time the Rockets will see Marc Davis before the trade deadline. I need him to miss one shooting foul on Eric Gordon, for old time’s sake. Just give me one – 10:50 PM

Matt George @Matt George SAC

Starting to wonder if Davion Mitchell is being told not to look to score on offense. He doesn’t attack. – 10:50 PM

Kings still haven’t completely shaken their β€œplaying to competition level” bad habit. – 10:46 PM

Silas going back to the 3 centers. I think he wants Sengun or Fernando on the floor when Sabonis is in the game and Garuba when it’s Metu – 10:43 PM

Silas goes Bruno over Garuba with Sengun picking up 2 fouls. I’d imagine it’s to match up with Sabonis – 10:26 PM

This Wolves 2-game road trip took them to Houston and Detroit β€” the two worst records in the league β€” and they fell down by 20+ points in both games.
Yes, they came back and beat Houston. But this is why this team is hard to believe in.
Final tonight: Wolves 118, Pistons 135 – 9:25 PM
