The Cleveland Cavaliers will host the Sacramento Kings in their NBA campaign at the Quicken Loans Arena on Monday. Feb. 8, starting 7 PM local time.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are going at a constant pace and have taken their record to 36-14. But things are not looking so good for the Sacramento Kings who stand at 21-29. The one man who might face the brunt of the heat is the King’s boss George Karl.
According to the Yahoo Reports, Sacramento’s 128-119 loss at Brooklyn on Friday escalated speculations that Karl might be sacked before the All-Star break. He had previously observed a similar fate in his four-decade career with Cleveland, Golden State, Milwaukee and Denver.
“We’re in a losing mode,” Karl said. “We’re losing games, but our basketball has not been bad basketball. It’s been not good enough to win basketball, which happens in the NBA every night. Just because you lose doesn’t mean you don’t play good basketball.”
As per the official NBA reports, the numbers don’t back Karl. The site quoted, “Sacramento has allowed 111.3 points per 100 possessions during this 1-7 stretch, 6.4 more than it was giving up in its first 43 games.”
“Biggest thing, I guess we’ve got to find a better energy and effort as a team,” said DeMarcus Cousins. He also pointed out that the team had a bigger issue than just energy and effort but fell short mentioning a few.
The Cavs are only behind the Golden State Warriors and the San Antonio Spurs. Their recent victory came without Kevin Love. As for the Kings, Rudy Gay and Ben McLemore are doubtful due to their injuries.
Stay tuned for all the live action.
