The Kings hosted the Grizzlies Sunday night, but it probably would be better if they hadn't.  The Kings came out with a lackluster effort, shooting terribly, missing layups, and showing a complete lack of effort.  Coach Michael Malone benched the starters, aside from Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, for most of the third quarter and all of the fourth quarter.  Clearly, the coach was trying to send a message.

And yes, you didn't read that wrong.  The Fresh Prince replaced John Salmons in the starting line-up.  But the real story with the small forwards was Travis Outlaw.  Outlaw was the best King on the floor, finishing with 18 points and six rebounds in just 17 minutes.  It was a great outing, and a reminder why some of us had high hopes when the Kings initially claimed Outlaw off amnesty waivers.

For the Grizzlies, Zach Randolph finished with 22 point and 10 rebounds.  Marc Gasol has 19 points and 9 rebounds, and Mike Conley had 19 points and nine assists.
