"Look, I'm frustrated. We all should be frustrated," Walton said ... "I was frustrated tonight and I believe in our team and I know when our group is playing well, we are much better than what we showed tonight."

Clearly, Walton is hoping for a turnaround ... could a clipboard freakout be the catalyst his team needs?
Kings play next against the Pistons on Friday night ... stay tuned.
