My favorite non Hawk player and my favorite west coast team comes calling tonight.  I hope Tyrese Haliburton has a great game in a losing cause tonight.  (Unless he stays here after the game.)

:sun:

LW3 - Great writeup, as usual!!

They then let Fox’s former backup, Cory Joseph, carve them up with nine assists to close out the homestand last Wednesday with a loss to Detroit, blowing an 11 point lead with under six minutes remaining (don’t laugh, Washington). Now the Kings (18-31, 3-6 on back ends of back-to-backs), in a sour mood, are seeking to scratch out their first road win since December 1.

Oddly, until last night’s 128-75 washout loss in Boston (Fox was withheld from the game, Gentry saving up his lead scorer’s sore ankle for today), the Kings have played more competitively in defeat under Gentry. From the start of their November funk through the end of December, Sacramento suffered through 14 double-digit defeats in 23 games. Last night’s Beantown beatdown was just their third loss by 10 or more points in this month (3-9 in January).

...

Kings are definitely gonna be hungry after their 53-point loss and will be looking to take it out on us (even if Fox is still held out). Hawks have not fared well this season after 2 days of rest so we've gotta wake up and take control early!

Hope Bogi's probable status gets upgraded so he gets to play and light up his former employer! GO HAWKS!!!

Do I even need to mention who much we must win this F-ing game?  Do I?

 

Anything worse than 3-0 this week would be a disappointment.   2-1 would be a minor disappointment I can live with.  1-2 or worse and I start cutting myself like a depressed teenage girl.

I don't understand why we keep recalling Sharife and JJ. They know they ain't playing. We know they ain't playing, the other team knows they ain't playing. Lol

I sadly agree! There are possible minutes up for grabs with Hunter and TLC currently questionable, but the sailing between 2 ships has really hurts their development. Especially Cooper:

Here's to a blowout and some valuable playing time for these 2 tonight! GO HAWKS!!!

There'll be no Metu Movement tonight.

Fox remains a gametime decision. Our ol' pal Damian Jones also was questionable with a sore ankle ahead of yesterday's game in Boston, but played 18 minutes and is off the injury list for today.

Practice body.  Hawks had 2 days off for a real practice and with guys limited need bodies...CP doesn't play again until Friday.

As of the 6:30 Boo-Boo Report, TLC has been upgraded to Available. The better news? So has Bogi and De'Andre.

~lw3

So we have an ALL AVAILABLE squad...no one on the injury report.  Is it the 1st time this season?
