Kings coach Michael Malone said if things do not improve, there will be changes to the lineup and players that have not gotten a chance to play will see time.
But that won't happen tonight. The Kings will stick with the same starting lineup in hopes of ending their four-game losing streak.
Malone doesn't want to panic. The Kings have only played five games and no one began the season thinking this would be an easy turnaround.
Prediction time: I'd like to believe the Kings can muster some enthusiasm to pull off a win. But Portland is hot and the Kings haven't shown they can do that, even at home.
Blazers 105, Kings 94
My record: 4-1
