Tyreke Evans doesn't give the public a look at his frustrations very often.

Evans, for example, went out of his way to say plantar fasciitis in his left foot wasn't an issue earlier in the season when all could see he wasn't himself.

So when Evans dressed quickly and ducked out of the locker room following Monday's 107-104 loss to the Utah Jazz, there was no way of knowing why Evans passed on his usual postgame chat with the media.

Evans said he wasn't set off by anyone in particular, including coach Paul Westphal, who wasn't happy with the team's execution and turnovers.

"No," Evans said. "I just wanted to win."

That Evans was frustrated made sense. The Kings have lost three consecutive games, and Monday's loss came when the Kings had an eight-point lead with 9:55 to play.

Evans matched his season-high six turnovers in the loss.

It was also the 17th time the Kings blew a fourth-quarter lead to lose a game.

That's nearly half of the Kings' losses (36).

The Kings couldn't figure out what to do against Utah's zone.

Evans admitted he was guilty of not attacking the zone properly with the rest of his teammates.

It won't get any easier tonight when the Kings host the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavericks have won nine in a row and run the zone defense as well as any team in the NBA.
