SACRAMENTO, CA - Following Saturday's home loss to the Phoenix Suns, the Sacramento Kings took part in a physical, final practice before embarking on a six game road trip over the next nine days - their longest of the season.
When asked how much practice time the team will have during the trip, Kings head coach Keith Smart replied, "none".
Sunday's practice was nothing short of fast paced as players took advantage of the precious time to build more cohesion within the team.
Center DeMarcus Cousins sat out most of the practice tending to a sore right thigh. Smart said that Cousins got kneed on Saturday night and also stepped on the heel of one of his teammates. Smart expects him to be ready for the first game of the trip.
The next time the Kings play at Power Balance Pavilion will take place following the NBA's All-Star break when they host the Utah Jazz on Tuesday, Feb. 28.
