Sacramento Kings Notes, Quotes 2008-11-04
-- After the Kings' latest loss, there was much talk inside their locker room about a lack of aggression.

The stats serve as proof that they are playing on their heels, especially as it pertains to the free-throw line. In four games, they have attempted just 87 free throws to their opponents' 120. From Minnesota to Miami, Orlando, and Philadelphia, their opponents have been the aggressors while the Kings have often waited for the whistle rather than playing in attack mode.

--The Kings helped make history of an unwelcome kind on Monday night, when eight Philadelphia players scored in double figures for the first time since April 1, 1990. This time, it was currents Sixers Thaddeus Young, Lou Williams, Willie Green, Elton Brand, Andre Miller, Donyell Marshall, Andre Iguodala and Kareem Rush doing the deed. Eighteen years ago, it was Charles Barkley, Mike Gminski, Hersey Hawkins, Rick Mahorn, Johnny Dawkins, Ron Anderson, Scott Brooks and Derek Smith.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "It's just hard right now. There's a lot of soul searching. We need to go back home, and it's time to look at ourselves in the mirror. It starts with me. I don't know why I came on this trip because I didn't do anything to help this team." -- Shooting guard Kevin Martin.
