After another loss, Kings are downsizing

After a fourth consecutive loss, this time 121-115 to the Los Angeles Clippers, coach Dave Joerger is committing to making a change. At halftime on Friday, he had seen enough of his two-center lineup getting outplayed in part because of poor energy. Then, he went small. And that’s the way it’s going to be now, he says.

‘It was just a shootaround – Jiminy Christmas’

DeMarcus Cousins and Ty Lawson said the Kings needed more focused preparation, pointing out the team looked sloppy running 5-on-0 drills.
