"Well, again there's a lovel we have to play at and we didn't do it long enough...I know it's been an up and down year, but we've got to figure it out. We've got to understand how hard it is to win games and how hard you have to compete throughout a game." - Sacramento Kings head coach Luke Walton following the loss.
Sacramento welcomed back big-man Marvin Bagley III, who returned to action after missing the previous eight games with a mid-foot sprain. Playing on a minutes restriction, he scored 18 points, on 8-of-17 shooting, collected six rebounds and had two blocks in his 23 minutes of action.
