Watching parts of the King's games on Saturday and Sunday night, I am starting to think that they might actually be a better without Martin. The Kings look more dangerous with Udrih and Evans in the backcourt than they did with Evans and Martin.
The Kings jumped five spots from last to 25th in Marc Stein's weekly power rankings of NBA teams, ahead of the Timberwolves, Warriors, Grizzlies, Nets and Knicks.

Never thought the Kings would move out of the No. 30 basement this quickly. Also never imagined they could follow up a home win over Memphis with Nocioni's arrest and Kevin Martin's injury . . . and then win in Utah.
