So maybe Luke Walton wasn’t all to blame? After a disappointing loss to the Hornets on Friday night, the Kings made it two straight in Cleveland when they were completely embarrassed by the Cavs. Here are 6 takeaways from the 117-103 shellacking. – 10:25 PM

The Heat will undergo a round of COVID testing tonight postgame and then another round Sunday before leaving for Cleveland to start their four-game trip. In addition to Martin and Adebayo, the expectation is that Morris and Butler also will not travel Sunday. – 10:25 PM

Even before tonight, Cavs’ starting lineup (Okoro version) had scored efficient 117 pp100p: nba.com/stats/team/161…
It’s amazing given that it has 1 guy who can dribble. But their p&r execution is darn near impeccable. Garland is fantastic, Allen does a lot more than catch lobs. – 9:39 PM

Joe Vardon @joevardon
I have lost count of how many lobs Darius Garland has thrown for dunks tonight, but the stats monitor tells me he has 12 assists, which ties a career high. There is 4:13 left in the third quarter. – 9:38 PM

As I suspected, the Cavs’ first half against Sacramento was historic. Their 81 points tied a franchise record for points in H1 (Nov. 23, 2016 against Portland), and were two shy of a franchise record for points in either half (83, against IND, Jan. 15, 1993) – 9:25 PM

A good way to lose a game: Garland went to the hole, got fouled from behind by Fox and flipped one in off the glass over Len, who was in position but hardly raised a hand to contest the shot. And-1. Three-point play. Kings down big in the second quarter. – 8:55 PM
