The Kings scored 16 straight points in the third quarter and led by 28 points heading into the fourth. The three-game winning streak is Sacramento's first since December 2012. The 44-point margin was the largest this season for the Kings.

It's safe to say the Sacramento Kings are no longer that cute little team out West.
No, the Kings aren't winning much more this season (they're 12-22 entering Sunday's home game vs. Cleveland), but they are starting to figure things out a little.
Just like any team with a new coach, the Kings are in a constant search for the right starting lineup and a regular rotation...

DeMarcus Cousins is having his best year as a pro. He’s currently averaging 23.3 points and 11.5 rebounds per game.
If he were playing in the East, he would easily be voted in an All Star game participant. But unfortuanately for Cousins, he plays in the West. And his career numbers are only good enough for 11th place amongst frontcourt players.
So with Cousins’ chances to make...
DeMarcus Cousins is an unsung hero of sorts given the fact that he is stationed in Sacramento with the Kings. Even so, he does not fly to far under the radar to escape Standing O Sports’ NBA Play Of The Day.
Against the Orlando Magic, DeMarcus Cousins makes a smooth no-look pass to Derrick Williams for the beautiful slam.

The Sacramento Kings re-assigned Ray McCallum to the Reno Bighorns on Sunday, the team's NBA Development League affiliate. This is McCallum’s second assignment with the Bighorns. In his first stint, McCallum averaged 22.0 points (.455 FG%, .308 3pt%, .667 FT%), 5.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.33 steals and 38.0 minutes per game in three contests.

Last Sunday, the Kings held a players-only meeting. It’s the kind of meeting that’s praised if wins follow but mocked if losses continue.
Since the gathering, the Kings have won a season-best three consecutive games. So, of course, it was just what the team needed.

DeMarcus Cousins found himself in an unusual place Sunday night, sitting on the bench the entire fourth quarter. Sacramento's center liked the feeling of not being needed in a rare lopsided win by the Kings.
Isaiah Thomas scored 26 points to lead the Kings to their third straight win with this season's biggest rout, a 124-80 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
For one game at least, the Kings managed to meet expectations and actually took care of business at home against a bad, undermanned team.
DeMarcus Cousins continued his All-Star push with another spectacular effort, tallying 24 points, 14 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals and a block in the win. Rudy Gay was phenomenal as well, tallying 22 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists, and shooting...
The Sacramento Kings are young, athletic and exciting, yet incredibly inconsistent. Their lack of discipline and inability to string together quality games is why the Kings find themselves cellar dwelling in a loaded Western Conference – a position the franchise is all too familiar with.
A quick eye test reveals a bad team. At 13-22, Sacramento is settling into another season of...
