Lakers-Kings Preview

(AP) -- The return of DeMarcus Cousins wasn't enough to lift the Sacramento Kings out of their slump, which now consists of a season-high five consecutive defeats.

That slide began when Kobe Bryant pushed the Los Angeles Lakers past a Cousins-less Kings team earlier this month, and the superstar will be seeking to bounce back from one of the worst offensive performances of his career in Sunday night's rematch.

Cousins had a team-leading 27 points on 8-of-12 shooting with 11 rebounds and five assists in 33 minutes Thursday, returning from a 10-game absence due to viral meningitis. However, he missed a jumper at the buzzer as the Kings fell 108-107 to Milwaukee for their 10th loss in 12 games.
