Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Sacramento Kings: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis

It figures to be a baptism by fire for Sacramento Kings interim coach Tyrone Corbin. In his first test since replacing the fired Michael Malone, Corbin’s club will face the red-hot, healthy Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday (10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN).

The Kings (11-13) are still playing without DeMarcus Cousins (viral meningitis) and still without a solution to compensate for his absence. Sacramento is 9-6 with Cousins in the lineup this season and only 2-7 without the 20-point, 10-rebound machine manning the middle.

The Thunder know the Kings’ pain all too well, but Oklahoma City is fortunately not feeling it any longer. Perennial All-Stars Russell Westbrook (broken hand) and Kevin Durant (broken foot) both missed significant time this season, but each has made it back within the past few weeks. The Thunder (11-13) have won eight of their last nine and six in a row, while putting up an even 110 points a night over their last four outings.

These clubs might own identical records for now, but they appear to be heading in opposite directions.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Sacramento Kings general manager Pete D’Alessandro stepped to the microphone and talked about how a franchise that was in disarray a little more than 18 months ago when owner Vivek Ranadive bought the team has been stabilized with new leadership, a change in culture and the start of a new arena.

George Karl a candidate to coach Sacramento Kings?

With the Sacramento Kings parting ways with Michael Malone it seems that the city of Sacramento has fully committed to recruiting George Karl.
In a Tweet Karl posted earlier this morning…

My phone battery went from 100% to 50% from all these Twitter notifications…..
— George Karl (@CoachKarl22) December 15, 2014

 
100% – 50% is quite impressive, but a timetable was never given. My grandfather often leaves his phone on for extended periods of time and wonders, “how in the world the phone died so quickly.” It’s called a phone charger, George.
After George Karl won 2013 Coach of the Year, the Nuggets were quick to fire him. Currently Karl is an on-air analyst for ESPN, and by his Twitter Avatar Karl appears to take things seriously.
The biggest improvement the Kings could make, besides trading Rudy Gay, is to hire George Karl to coach their club.
Vinny Del Negro has also appeared as a candidate for the head-coaching job. I’m not sure that hire makes much sense considering t…

Report: Sacramento Kings Lastest Candidates For Head Coaching Position

Shockingly the Kings fired former Head Coach Mike Malone last night for reasons Malone didn’t meet win-loss expectations of ownership. Assistant Coach Tyrone Corbin has been sworn in as interim head coach for the time being, however, the ownership are leaning towards pursuing George Carl or Vinny Del Negro. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reports via Twitter:

Natural candidate for Sacramento will be George Karl, whom D’Alessandro worked with in Denver. Still, Kings insist he isn’t on deck now.
— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) December 15, 2014

Another long-term candidate to monitor for the Sacramento Kings coaching job, league sources tell Yahoo Sports: Vinny Del Negro.
— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) December 15, 2014

 
Realistically, my chips are on Karl at this point after building a relationship with the Kings current general manager Pete D’Alessandro while in Denver. D’Alessandro comfortable and familiar with Karl and has gone on record stating his fondn…

Report: Sacramento Kings fire head coach Mike Malone

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Sacramento Kings have fired head coach Mike Malone. The decision was apparently made after the team dropped a five-point decision to the lowly Detroit Pistons at home on Saturday night.
Wojnarowski’s report goes on to tell us a story of an ownership group in Sacramento that failed to create cohesion between the coaching staff and front office.

There has been significant tension between management and Malone on several fronts over the past year, and the firing ultimately turned out to be another cautionary tale in what happens when ownership doesn’t put together management and coaching staffs that have similar philosophies and a shared partnership.

Sacramento started the season incredibly strong, going 9-6 before dropping seven of its last nine games. And in a Western Conference full of contenders, a streak like that could doom a team’s season.
The decision to fire Malone was met with widespread criticism from those around the Association, fan
