Kings Continue to Make the Wrong Kind of History

Monday's loss to the Clippers sent the Kings down to 4-15 on the season. That mark ties the team's previous worst 19-game starts in the Sacramento, set in 1987 and 1990. In each of those seasons, the Kings won Game No. 20 to move to 5-15 on the season. As such, if the Kings lose Wednesday to the Wizards, it will mark the worst start in the history of the Sacramento Kings.

The loss also knocked Paul Westphal to 29-72 (.287) at the head of the Kings. The loss last week to the Lakers pushed Westphal behind Dick Motta in winning percentage, giving Westphal the worst record among all Sacramento Kings head coaches with at least 100 games under their belt.

Westphal also fell behind Bill Russell to become the full-time head coach with the worst record period in Sacramento Kings history. Kenny Natt, who went 11-47 (.189), was an interim head coach after Reggie Theus was fired.
