Postgame notes: Jimmer plays ahead of Thornton in win

Some quick notes from tonight's game:

*Marcus Thornton didn't play tonight. He's not injured and not being traded.

"I've given Marcus Thornton nine games to play and I wanted to give Jimmer a look tonight," said Kings coach Michael Malone.

Fredette had three points (1-of-5 shooting) with three assists in the Kings' 107-104 win over the Phoenix Suns.

*DeMarcus Cousins said his shoulder "slipped" out of socket during the second quarter.

"I've don it before," Cousins said. "I've done it a number of times. It just slipped out and slipped back in."

Cousins said he expects to play Wednesday in Phoenix.

*The Kings matched their season high with 107 points. They also scored a season-high 54 points in the paint.

*The Kings have 131 turnovers through 10 games, the fewest through 10 games in team history. The previous best was 136 to start the 2004-05 season.

*The Kings were outscored 25-2 in fastbreak points.

*Check back later for more. Time for me to pack for Phoenix.
