A statistical look at the Kings’ 112-106 loss to the Miami Heat on Friday:

0: Minutes played by Kings star center DeMarcus Cousins because of a manadatory one-game suspension he incurred for his 16th technical foul of the season with 6.7 seconds to play in Wednesday’s win over Washington.

0: Three-pointers made by four of the Kings’ starters, with Seth Curry being the exception.

2: Consecutive seasons Miami has swept its series with the Kings.

4: Three-pointers out of six attempts made by Curry.

6: More games left in the season for the Kings, who appear to be leaning toward dismissing coach George Karl.

9: Free throws made in nine attempts by Kings guard Darren Collison.

11: Losses against two victories for the Kings when they are without Cousins this season.

13: Rebounds by Miami center Hassan Whiteside, a former Kings draft pick who has been a surprise for the Heat this season.

24: Miami’s largest lead of the game.

26: Points by Collison, game high for the Kings.

30: Career high in points for Miami’s Gerald Green.

43: Losses against 13 victories for the Kings overall when Cousins doesn’t play.

54.5: Percentage of three-pointers made by the Heat (12 of 22).

245: Blocked shot this season after Friday’s game by Whiteside, who leads the NBA.

6.5 million: Dollars the Kings will owe Karl should they let him go.
