This game was an utter mess from the beginning. The C's came out… well… like an older team on a back-to-back after a cross-country trip and losing an hour in the timezone switch.
Doc got tossed after a couple of techs… KG got tossed after a "dust up" with Channing Frye. The C's looked like crap until they cut the lead to single digits late in the 4th. But then Nate Robinson took a horribly ill-advised 3… Marcin Gortat ( career high 19 pts and 17 rebounds, including a 3 to end the 1st quarter) followed that up with a basket… KG flicked Frye in the nuts… and it was over. The 88-71 loss is the worst of the season for the C's.
As for the KG play: dumb. Just a dumb play. There's no defense for it.
It seems both the C's and the Lakers forgot they had games to play tonight before their big matchup on Sunday. The Lakeshow fell to the god-awful Kings… AT HOME… tonight.
My advice: Let this one go, and focus on Sunday.
