Tuesday practice notes and quotes

Kings coach Keith Smart said Tuesday's practice was lighter than Monday, which came after a day off.

He worked on some offensive principles (moving the ball...again), prepared for the Toronto Raptors.

Here are some other things Smart touched on after practice.

On some the mistakes the Kings make during games and if sitting that player would change things:

"It's not so much this person or that person. When we're tight in a game like that. You think you have your best players on the floor but they've got to grow to where they're semi-mistake free. That's almost impossible but you can't have everyone making mistakes."

"With this group all of them have had their share in doing that. It's a growth thing for our entire team."

On whether the youth excuse is valid for the mistakes

"We keep saying they're not young but they are young. Although you've got a couple years in the league you're still young. You still make a lot of the little mistakes that you shouldn't be making."

"You're not a veteran yet, you're still trying to figure out the game. You're still trying to figure out is it more against my teammate for who is going to be the leading scorer. Those things you're still trying to figure out. "
