Sacramento Kings Notes, Quotes 2009-12-12

Sacramento Kings Notes, Quotes 2009-12-12--The Kings' 8-of-15 free throw showing against San Antonio Wednesday was the continuation of an unforgivable trend during their four-game losing streak. They hit just nine of 19 free throws in Tuesday's loss at New Orleans, 20 of 32 against Miami Sunday, 20 of 29 against Phoenix Saturday. Overall, they are 57 of 95 in that stretch (60 percent).

--San Antonio broke its three-game losing streak with Wednesday's win over the Kings. It was the second three-game losing streak of the season for the Spurs, who had just one all of last season.

--The Kings have lost seven straight games against the Spurs overall and seven straight in San Antonio as well.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "So far, I have to say that these players have bought in. I see the improvement every day. If we try to emphasize one thing, and pretty soon you see the improvement on it. And once it all ferments, I think it's going to be a nice little picture." -- Kings coach Paul Westphal, on his team's play this season.
