07:31 AM ET 12.25 | So much for offering up a cup of cheer. Your nightly postgame notes and quotes after a pitiful fourth quarter that ended with a 113-100 loss by the Kings to the New Orleans Pelicans: Kings coach Michael Malone summed up the state of his team: "We're a bad basketball team. That's the bottom line. We're a bad basketball team right now." The Kings did plenty of things bad basketball teams do. Their lack of gameplan focus is amazing, the latest being going over screens on Tyreke Evans, rather than forcing him to shoot jump shots. ... "We come out of a timeout in the fourth quarter and we can't make an entry pass into the wing," Malone said. "Coming out of a timeout, our starting point guard (Isaiah Thomas) to our starting small forward (Rudy Gay)." That happened with 4:40 to play with the Kings down 97-92.

Probably bad coaching also. There were many times that the Kings were almost at the brink of becoming a very solid team. They were playing teams very tough to the end.
