Kings iron out kinks before busy weekend

SACRAMENTO, CA - Head coach Paul Westphal used another free day to jam in another much needed practice day before the team hosts two home games to end 2011 and welcome the new year.

After suffering two straight losses since their opening their season on a high note following Monday's victory over the Los Angeles Lakers, the Kings have developed some bad habits that have plagued them in each loss.

The familiar themes: poor transition defense, lack of efficient ball movement, and probably the biggest flaw of all - free throws.

With a New Year's Eve game on Saturday against the run-and-gun New York Knicks and New Year's Day against the New Orleans Hornets, Westphal used Friday afternoon to emphasize and work on those troublesome themes.

Westphal called "a spirited practice" and remained confident that his team will work out their recent deficiencies.

Kings swat Hornets without Cousins

SACRAMENTO, CA - 2012 got off to an unusual start on Sunday for the Sacramento Kings, who had to discipline a player, address trade demands, and host the New Orleans Hornets.

Luckily for the Kings, they managed to roll the New Orleans Hornets 96-80 without second-year center DeMarcus Cousins, thanks to 27 points from Tyreke Evans and a 25 point performance from Marcus Thornton.

After losing three straight games coming into Sunday, Sacramento looked to right the ship and instead ran into more drama.

Around 3:30 p.m. the team released a statement from head coach Paul Westphal that said Cousins had demanded a trade and it was Westphal's request, with the approval of team management, that he was to remain home and not report to the arena.

Knicks hand 'lost' Kings third straight defeat

SACRAMENTO, CA - The Sacramento Kings have a lot to figure out after losing their third straight game and closing out 2011 with a few of concerns and many questions.

Tyreke Evans at his locker in disbelief following Saturday's 114-92  dismantling loss to the New York Knicks, who had six players in double-figures, playing without star power forward Amar'e Stoudemire due to a left ankle sprain.

"From the beginning of the game until the end, we just looked lost," Evans said. "We just play off out natural talent and that's how we get out points. It's terrible right now and we've just got to figure something out."

Evans finished with 13 points while Marcus Thornton netted 14 points for the Kings, who have lost three straight since opening the season with a win over the Lakers.

How to get a free ride home on New Year's Eve

SACRAMENTO - As part of their dedication to keeping the roads a safe place for all motorists, the Automobile Club will once again be offering their "Tipsy Tow" program on New Years Eve.

As the name implies, if you've had a few too many while celebrating the coming year, you can call 1-800-222-4357 (AAA-HELP), tell the operator, "I need a Tipsy Tow," and the truck will come to collect you and your vehicle.

The offer is good to both AAA members and non-members. The service offers a free, one-way tow up to 10 miles for the driver and additional passengers if there is space in the tow truck.

Local law enforcement agencies vowed to crackdown on drinking and driving this New Years Eve, so why risk the physical, emotional and financial toll associated with drunk driving? Rather than get behind the wheel if you've been drinking, call AAA and get yourself, your friends and your vehicle home safely.
