Tonight's game will not be easy. As Yahoo reported:
If you look at recent stats, both teams have the same identical record for the past 10 games (5-5). Hope springs eternal, although every road trip to Dallas causes me flashbacks of the most disastrous road game in modern Kings history.The prospects of ending those droughts don't appear promising as they've lost 16 straight in Dallas during the regular season, the NBA's third-longest active road losing streak versus one opponent. Sacramento's most recent win there was part of its last playoff series victory in 2004.
What to watch for: TEAM PLAY. If the guys can continue to remember there's a reason their uniforms all look alike, we've got a chance.
What to avoid: Seagull syndrome (from a friend of mine who compared the attitude of Thornton in the last game to that of the seagulls in "Finding Nemo"). It cannot be "mine, mine, mine, mine, mine." If it is, the Kings lose.
