WASHINGTON - The Kings finished their six-game road trip 1-5. Hardly a record to brag about, there was a lot learned on the trip.
A few of them were:
1. The Kings can score - After scoring 100 or more points five times all season, the Kings topped 100 points four of six games. Two of those games were against two good defensive teams - Chicago and Miami ... but ....
2. The Kings have a lot of work to do on defense - Five of six opponents scored 100 points or more on the Kings.
3. A new leader - Isaiah Thomas might not be the "best" player on the Kings but he's clearly as important as any player. He's a leader, savvy and has an understanding of what coach Keith Smart wants done on the court.
4. Evans can thrive with Thomas - When the Kings are playing well it doesn't matter if Evans is a point guard, shooting guard or small forward. Thomas has taken over a lot of point guard duties and Evans is adjusting to getting out on the wing and creating for himself and others better.
There's more I could get into, but my flight to Orlando is about to start boarding. I'll catch up later today.
