The Kings suffered their fifth consecutive loss, 99-90, to the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday at Sleep Train Arena.

After a two-game winning streak, the Kings have fallen to 2-8. The last time the Kings had a record that bad through 10 games was in the 1990-91 season.

The new starting lineup consisted of Aaron Brooks and Tyreke Evans at guard, John Salmons and Jason Thompson at forward, and DeMarcus Cousins at center.

It was the fourth different starting lineup the Kings have used this season, but the first time coach Keith Smart changed it because of performance instead of suspensions.

Brooks replaced Isaiah Thomas, and Salmons replaced James Johnson.
