The game plan on this three-game back-breaker in three nights was for Jason Kidd to sit the middle game in Sacramento.

"That was the plan, but when we lost in Phoenix, we decided to go ahead and play in Sac,'' Kidd said after Saturday's 111-87 loss at Golden State.

Kidd said that there are no plans to turn this into a weeklong sit-down.

"Taking this one off, plus we got two more days off, that gives me a nice three-day break before we play again,'' he said.
