i think he was afraid of making a turnover and rather take responsibility shooting free throws, this, or a desire to overshadow vlad the saviour and king the mercy

I know a lot of you probably don't listen to metal bands, and won't like this stuff, but I find it quite fitting for this game. :mrgreen:

He tried but Greene had good position and bumped him - he almost lost the ball.

Great finish to another ugly warrior game. The FT shooting is embarrassing and has been the difference in far to many games this season.

It's not only free throw shooting. We were again out rebounded, and that's mostly because we're always late to pick up on rotation, and we have usually just one guy below the basket. Too many fouls, FFS Amundson fouled out in a less than 13 minutes. And I said before what we don't do on offense a lot, no tactics, just hand it to Monta style of play won't get us through.

And of course, Smart...why did we play with just 8 players? Carney, Gadz...even Bell could have came in a little bit, just to rest those 4 that never leave the game, if not for any other reason.

Yeah, I was wondering why Carney wasn't put into the game.

One more thing, I really like how Udoh is playing so far. He didn't score, but he gets a lot of rebounds, and is a great blocker. He could turn out to be a great pick in the end.

Real ugly game, but again in the 4th quater we played well. You can see a big difference when they are actually trying in the last quater from the rest of the game.
It is like they are saving the stregnth for the end in anticipation for playing a lot of minutes. The reason Carney and Gad didn't play was due to injury i believe. I know Gadz wasn't in uniform and Carney has had the foot problem. It realy hurts us to have the smaller Lou play against the bigger guys, I think Lou does best coming off the bench against the not so big 4's and 5's.
Ekpe was nice, hopefully he can start looking to assert him self in the offense early in the game. He is playing the high post which kind of clogs the lanes.

SACRAMENTO -- Lost in the Warriors' unreal comeback victory over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night was some ill-advised, late-game taunting from Kings rookie center DeMarcus Cousins.

It started when the Warriors' Reggie Williams missed the first of three free throws while trailing 98-93 with 19.3 seconds left. That prompted Cousins to step into the lane, grab his neck and send a "choke" signal Williams' way.

Williams made his second free throw, but missed his third attempt. The Warriors, though, got the rebound and Dorell Wright was sent to the free-throw line after getting fouled.

Wright also missed his first free throw and was reportedly treated to the same choking signs from Cousins.

As karma would have it, it was Cousins' failure to secure a rebound with two seconds left in regulation on an intentionally missed free throw that led to Vladimir Radmanovic's desperation, game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer.

The Warriors went on to secure a 117-109 overtime victory that ranks as perhaps their most thrilling win of the season.

Cousins, on the other hand, wound up scoring just seven points on 3-for-13 shooting with four costly turnovers and a big bowl of wrong for his post-game meal.

HAHA, Karma is a BITCH!

http://blogs.sacbee.com/sports/kings/archives/2010/12/cousins-benched.html#ixzz18tTDkj2S

Cousins benched, fined for .... what?

DeMarcus Cousins has his anger issues, but apparently, so does his coach. After Wednesday's practice - which I missed while monitoring a live chat for the Bee - Paul Westphal announced that his rookie center had been fined and removed from the starting lineup for making a right-handed choke sign during Wednesday's loss to Golden State. At the time, the Kings led 98-93, were 19.3 from a victory, with Warriors swingman Reggie Williams at the free throw line. Cousins, who was fined Nov. 12 after clashing with an assistant and team trainer, flashed a grin and placed his right hand around his throat. Williams missed two of his three attempts.

The punishment is reminiscent of Westphal's benching last year of Spencer Hawes. The former Kings center had publicly complained about the player rotations, and when he arrived for the next game, discovered he had been de-activated and his uniform removed from the locker room.

Westphal's latest disciplinary move seems even more extreme. It would have been different if Cousins had flipped somebody off or engaged in similarly offensive behavior. But this was nothing more than a silly, boyish display. A scolding would have sufficed. And in the scheme of issues ailing the Kings, this is a major overreaction.

Ailene Voshine is the worst sports writer in the world... Sacramento residents (whether fans of the Kings, Warriors, whoever) all agree that she is an awful sports writer.
