Could Cousins' struggles be his ticket out of Sacramento?

This is certainly not the year three that DeMarcus Cousins had in mind going into the season. His scoring and rebounding numbers are down from last year and he just looks miserable out there. Of course, that could also be because he plays for the 5-12 Sacramento Kings. It’s one of those situations where you wonder if a talented player would thrive in a different situation. If...

Thomas blows up the grind

The Magic suspected scoring would be a problem entering the season. There was no great one-on-one player that demanded the defense's attention at all points of the game. That made it clear Orlando would have to manufacture points with strong half-court execution and transition baskets. Defense would not hurt. And even when Orlando was not scoring on this night, much like...

Smart finds right combination as Kings shoot past Magic

SACRAMENTO -- Kings coach Keith Smart found out 30 minutes before Friday night's game against the Orlando Magic that swingman Tyreke Evans left knee would keep him out of the contest. So Smart began the game with veteran Francisco Garcia playing for Evans and never stopped making moves until he found the right combination. Most of the fourth quarter that combination consisted...

To keep their win streak going, the Kings will have to snap a lengthy skid in Dallas on Monday night and deny the Mavericks a season high-tying third straight victory. Sacramento (7-12) became...

Wesley Matthews, who has never missed an NBA game in his four years, said he heard his left hip flexor pop during the fourth quarter of Saturday’s 99-80 home loss to Sacramento. That came after the same hip was hobbled a quarter earlier when John Salmons kneed him. The Blazers next play Monday at home against Toronto.
