With Crawford and Collison back our bench becomes viable again.

Now I hope these next three games are able to be used to tune up Redick's and Crawford's shooting. Much needed for the playoffs. And maybe even time for Big Baby to lose another 10 pounds (only 3% of his body weight - you can do it!).

Glad to hear JJ say that he has no effects from his bad back or knee and feels great. Just soreness from not being in game shape.

Maybe people want to watch it later at night, and couldn't post about it live.

Seemed like a  nice regular season game, especially in the 1st.

I DVR 90 percent of the games.  Or I would post more during games.

Should we have a game timeshifted thread? :)

As I mentioned in another thread, a few times if I really want to post while watching a game delayed, I'll make a "Late Game Thread", or just post at the end of the already-created thread, but at 11 pm or 1 am when no one else is there.

 

Corkscrew is another person who never watches live games, as he likes skipping commercials.

 

So I think over the past few years, people have embraced the convenience DVRing has provided, and the flexibility to do other things during some game times.

 

The playoffs might have a few low output live threads, especially for mid afternoon games.  Or of people are at the games.

 

Or, sometimes a TV isn't available for live viewing, because someone has to watch Hannah Montana.

 

Or, sometimes one may be watching with others elsewhere (bar / friend's place), and unable to post at the same time.

Did you ever read "A Wrinkle In Time"?

Remember when you were stuck watching cartoons, during a playoffs game, last year, in order to get his daughter to sleep!  I wish I could bump that post.  

 

Fortunately, you made it in time for live posting, at some point during the second half.

 

I like game thread posts such as that, which reveal what is going on in the poster's lives.  Whether it's what they're eating or drinking, or whether a TV is in use, or something funny like that, it makes it easier to connect to others, and experience what they're going through.

Yes, but not for 35+ years.  It was one of my first sci-fi/fantasy novels.

I am an avid Dr. Who warcher, however.

Yeah I had forgotten about that book until now but it was probably one of my first science fiction books. It was an exciting new reading experience in middle school. I also remember reading "The White Mountains" around that time in middle school. Not sure which I read first. Tripods!  That was cool.

Yeah, before making the post in this thread, I looked up that book again on wiki.  I see it's part of a quintet now.  I think I'll add that quintet to my reading list.  I'll get to it after I finish the last 3 Enders Series books (the 2012, 2013, and 2014 books).

I own the third but have not read it.  I did not even know there were more beyond that.  I suppose I might want to read the whole series now. Perhaps after I finish the newest Brandon Sanderson book.

Well, what does this say about Sacramento when a King's/Clippers game thread turns in to a discussion of young adult science fiction books? Coincidentally, I am reading a book called "The King". And it's definitely not for young adults. It's for mature people like me that can handle material with big dicks and pulsating orgasms. Wait, that didn't sound right. It's got knives and guns and shitkickers and teleportation.

It says more about the end of the regular season IMO.  And more about a nice weather day on Saturday.  And more about how a meaningful game is a week away (playoffs).

 

If this were in November, there would have been a better thread.

 

I did think this was a nice game, I would have added it to the wire to wire thread last year.

I give the Kings credit for making us earn the victory.  Few minutes for Dudley and Hedo, and no minutes for Bullock and Hollins except for waiting for the clock to run out at the end.

Speaking of young adult fiction, I highly recommend Brandon Sander's Steelheart novel.   It's a superhero book...but there are no heroes, just supervillians.  From the intro:

 

There are no heroes.

Every single person who manifested powers—we call them Epics—turned out to be evil.

Here, in the city once known as Chicago, an extraordinarily powerful Epic declared himself Emperor. Steelheart has the strength of ten men and can control the elements. It is said no bullet can harm him, no sword can split his skin, no explosion can burn him. He is invincible.

It has been ten years. We live our lives as best we can. Nobody fights back . . . nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans who spend their lives studying powerful Epics, finding their weaknesses, then assassinating them.

My name is David Charleston. I’m not one of the Reckoners, but I intend to join them. I have something they need. Something precious, something incredible. Not an object, but an experience. I know his secret.

I’ve seen Steelheart bleed.
