After the ugly 0-5 start, the Kings have given us two nice wins to provide some hope. I liked that the victories were total contrasts of each other. A gritty nail biter down to the wire against the Jazz, and a runaway blowout vs. the Knicks. This team can win in several ways. They just need to realize that nothing will be handed to them.
Perhaps the poor start was the wakeup call they needed. The team seems to be playing for each other again. Unselfish passing, and lots of communication on defense has been clear over the past few games.
The competition steps up in a big way on Wednesday in Toronto. Even if they don’t get the win, I want to see this same level of intensity for 48 minutes.
