Louis King played 34 minutes Friday night, finishing with 27 points (10-16 FG, 2-5 3PT, 5-5 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, three steals, and two blocks, all of which are career highs.
If you were crazy enough to actually start King on Friday, well you were more than rewarded. His 34 minutes is more than his combined minute totals from the rest of the season. It seems as if the Kings are just testing out different players before the season ends with G Justin James and now King, but King played too well to not warrant minutes in the season finale on Sunday. He's a risky start with upside if he gets hot again.
