Wonder how long before Malone goes back to Vasquez with Cousins. They were clicking in the third quarter.

Kings lead 80-75, 8:10 to play.

McLemore and 4 reserves (Hayes, Patterson, Salmons, Thomas) in with game tied at 67. Hayward to shoot a FT
There's a "We Want Jimmer" cheer that some folks are trying to get going. It's unlikely they'll get him.
"We want Jimmer!" chants in Utah.
DMC has 13 points in the third quarter, Kings up 64-61, 4:03 left in the period. He has 18 points in the game.
The Kings are back ahead, 57-56.
Also about FB points. It's hard to run when you don't force turnovers and get stops on defense.
Cousins tried to prove my theory about bad things happening when the center leads the break wrong. It ended with a turnover.
Cousins has attacked quickly the last 2 times and scored both times.
The Kings plan to dump the ball into Cousins works best when he attacks quickly. Things bog down when 4 guys watch him back his man down.
The Kings have only 3 fastbreak points. McLemore, Thornton, Thomas would all benefit from a faster pace.

Cousins is back in after playing 1 minute in the first quarter because of 2 quick fouls.
Jazz 24, Kings 23 after 1Q. Thompson 6 pts, Thomas 5 pts. UTAH: Hayward 7 pts, Kanter 6 pts.
Travis Outlaw makes an appearance for the first time in a while.
That's foul No. 3 for Ndiaye on Biedrins.
Ndiaye with his second foul!!! Some of the few fans here are booing until Biedrins makes a FT.
Ndiaye is in the game to hack Andris Biedrins. It worked, he missed both FTs.
Kings have started the game shooting 7/23 and trail 21-18 with 2:05 left in the 1Q. Jazz shooting 9/18.
American Airlines playing music inside the plane...a piano version of "Radioactive" from Imagine Dragons. Weird
If you didn't know, these are the two worst teams in the West, record wise. So this should be competitive, right?
10:35 left in 1Q and Cousins already has 2 fouls. There goes that size advantage.
Pretty sure is only the second time Greivis Vasquez has posted up a smaller guard this season.
"Born in the bricks with the short end of the stick."
RIP to great Sacramento man Marvin "Buzz" Oates. A Tremendous person, leader, entrepreneur, and family man.
The Kings recalled Hamady Ndiaye from the Reno Bighorns. He'll be in Salt Lake City for tonight's game vs. the Jazz
Gotta love in flight WiFi. Epic.
Vacation to the Caribbean officially starts now....and, as luck would have it, 1st leg of trip - flight to Dallas tomorrow AM...cancelled :/
Ben McLemore's 20 points is a new career-high.
FINAL: Lakers 106, Kings 100. Pau Gasol and Jodie Meeks with 19 points each. McLemore and Cousins both score 20 for the Kings.
Brutal loss for the Kings. Lakers have to be thrilled to be at 10-9 with Kobe Bryant coming back Sunday vs. TOR
And another turnover. This one by Cousins.
The Kings haven't scored since Cousins' free throws made it 97-93 with 3:35 to play.
Nick Young's jumper should do it. 103-97 with 30.1 to go.
Nick Young comes back with a jumper to make it 103-97, 30.1 secs to play.
And another turnover. This time, McLemore.
Kings have given up 21 points off 15 turnovers.
Kings have been outscored 20-10 in the fourth quarter.
Lakers fans are going nuts. Lead the Kings 101-97 with 1:09 remaining.
Lakers are no on an 8-0 run, lead 101-97, 1:09 to play. Kings left Gasol open for a J, then Meeks hit a 3.
Two big shots by the Lakers (Gasol jumper at the free throw line, Meeks corner three) puts the Lakers up 101-97 w/ 109 to go.
Kings closing game with Vasquez, McLemore, Salmons, Williams and Cousins. 97-96 KIngs, 2:29 to go
