Sacramento allowed a season-high 124 points to Atlanta on Wednesday and yielded 122 to Miami on Friday, forcing the team to realize that applying coach Michael Malone's consistent message could do them well. "He preaches it over and over (that) we're a defensive team," center DeMarcus Cousins told the Sacramento Bee. "Once we get that in our heads, we'll be a better team."

Gay discounted his own performance, telling the Sacramento Bee, "I'm just happy we got the win. First win as a King."
