Do as Doug Christie says, not as he scores.

"He's going through a little bit of a thing right now," Kings assistant Pete Carril told the Sacramento Bee of the shooting guard. "He's always working hard, and he's been shooting well in practice. He's making shots in drills, and actually I'm surprised he has such a lack of confidence in himself. You've got to believe in yourself, and for him not to believe in himself, as hard as he has worked on his game and as much effort as he gives in other phases of the game, it's surprising."
