YouTube of the day: Kings improving on defense

Last night's Sacramento Kings/Dallas Mavericks matchup was an unmitigated classic, one of several close games on the docket, and we'll get into all of them as the morning drags on.

Until then, let's take a look at some improved Kings defense, courtesy of The X's and O's of Basketball.

From the (great) site:

"Though you wouldn't think it from their record (15-21) and their 101.8 ppg they allow, but the Kings are developing into a very aggressive defensive team under Theus. They play hard M2M defense both in transition and in the half-court, they trap the post and the wing, they jump passes to the wing, it's a very aggressive, gambling style defense."

Once again, the clip offers no audio. So, because it's been in our head all morning long, we offer this as a soundtrack.�
