CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Another big offensive showing from Kings center DeMarcus Cousins wasn't enough to overcome an otherwise dismal offensive showing for the Kings.

Cousins had 30 points, 17 rebounds and six assists but the Kings shot just 37.5 percent in losing to the Charlotte Bobcats, 95-87, Tuesday at Time Warner Cable Arena.

The Kings' inability to defend guards was a problem again as Kemba Walker had 24 points and five assists for Charlotte (11-14). Gerald Henderson had 20 points and five assists and Ramon Sessions added 16 points and six assists off the bench.

Rudy Gay did not play the fourth quarter for the Kings (7-16) due to right knee stiffness.

The Kings play at Atlanta Wednesday.
