This game wasn’t lost because of schemes. It was lost on desire, effort, and hardwork, which the Kings noticeably lacked in losing 110-105 to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night at Sleep Train Arena.
The loss left (coach George) Karl wondering if he had the players with the grit to play tough when it matters and consistently or does he have too many players who care only about offense.
“My feeling is we have too many offensive players and not enough defensive players,” Karl said. “We don’t have enough guts to make stops.”
