A few Feb 2 Kings notes
1. First half malaise: It's as if the Kings don't take the first half seriously. In the three losses on this road trip, they've been dominated in either the first or second quarter and trailed by 15-plus points. The Kings aren't good enough to turn on the intensity when they're down.
2. Defense, please: Denver and Boston both shot better than 60 percent in the first half of their wins. Philadelphia flirted with 60 percent most of the first half.
3. Offensive efficiency: Sacramento is shooting 38.5 percent in its last two games (59 of 153).
