The Morning After: Rebounding remains a big concern for Kings

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Rebounding was a concern of the Kings before the season and it still is.

The Kings were down 95-93 with 2:50 to play when they were unable to secure a rebound off a missed free throw.

Jason Maxiell grabbed the rebound and made one of his two free throws to make the score 96-93.

It wasn't the play that ultimately decided the game, but it's the kind of play that causes a team to lose a close game when possessions are at a premium.

The Kings entered the game being outrebounded by an average of 3.71 rebounds per game, the third biggest deficit in the league.

The Kings were outrebouned 44-37 by the Pistons. DeMarcus Cousins was the only King with double figures in rebounding with a game-high 14. No other King has more than six.

The Kings have been outrebounded 21 times in 31 games. Sacramento is 5-16 when losing the rebounding battle.
