There are a myriad of reasons why the Kings have lost four consecutive games.

*The defense hasn't been stellar. They've allowed 117.8 points per game.

*In the last four games the Kings haven't outscored an opponent in the paint. In their 13 wins, only one has come when they've been outscored in the paint.

DeMarcus Cousins said the Kings have lost their identity of late and the lack of paint points is a sign. When the Kings were playing well, they were scoring a lot in the paint with Cousins leading the way.

*The Kings have had 33 shots blocked in the last four games.

*The team just has looked off over the last week. Whether it was fatigue (Brooklyn), a better teams (Memphis, Miami) or stagnant offense and poor rebounding (Dallas) the Kings don't look like the team that had played so well before returned home hoping to use this five-game homestand to build momentum.

"We've got to get the chemistry back on our team," said Kings coach Keith Smart.

Smart knew the chemistry would be disrupted adding Tyreke Evans and Marcus Thornton back into the lineup after injuries.
