Kings 120, Mavs 89 (final). Losing by 31 at home to a lottery team is a new low for the Mavs, whose 4-17 record is the NBA's worst.

Dwight Powell, who the Mavs gave a four-year, $37 million deal this summer, will see his playing time increased significantly while Andrew Bogut recovers from a knee injury. Powell got off to a slow start this season but has averaged 16 points and 7.5 rebounds in the last two games. "He's progressing game to game, no question about it," coach Rick Carlisle said. "He's gaining experience, recognition of situation, teammates being on the same wavelength with him. Many, many positives."

Andrew Bogut said timetable he's been given for his recovery from a hyperextension and bone bruise in his left knee is 10 days to 3-4 weeks.

Rick Carlisle on Kings C DeMarcus Cousins: "He's as big of a matchup problem at the center position as I've seen in some time. Just because now he effectively shoots 3s, he's a beast on the inside, he can shoot midrange and he's a great passer and an unselfish player. ... There are many, many challenges. He's virtually impossible to guard one-on-one in the post, and I've never seen a center drive the ball like that." The Mavs face Cousins' Kings on Wednesday.

Rick Carlisle was displeased with the Mavs' effort after reviewing film of the Mavs' loss to the Hornets: "Why we fell into that, I'm not sure. Maybe we were resting on the laurels of our one-game winning streak."

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Dwight Powell has had his highest-scoring outings of the season in the Mavs' last two games: 17 in a win over the Bulls and 15 in a loss to the Hornets, going 7-of-11 from the floor both nights. Powell has had some spectacular lob finishes, benefiting from guards Deron Williams and Devin Harris returning from injuries. Powell will get plenty of opportunity as Andrew Bogut recovers from his knee injury.

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Rick Carlisle: Mavs getting outrebounded by 20 by Hornets "shouldn't happen. That points to effort, which I don't like to say about this team, but I've got to look at it. We'll see. That's not good." It didn't help that Andrew Bogut (6 rebounds in 11 minutes) got hurt late in the first quarter.
