Malone still searching for team effort as Kings falter again
Less than five minutes into the third quarter, the Kings had tested coach Michael Maloneís patience to the point that he benched most of his starting lineup.
Except for forward Luc Mbah a Moute, the starters were done for the night.
Malone said he wasnít trying to send a message. He was trying to win a game. But that didnít happen, with the Kings falling to the Memphis Grizzlies 97-86 today at Sleep Train Arena.
The Kings have lost seven of their last eight games and continue to confound their coach with lackluster effort.
