Inconsistency is one of the main reasons the Sacramento Kings are going towards another season playoff-less.
Following their most recent victory over the Chicago Bulls, Sabonis revealed that Lyles has impacted the team's energy dramatically.
''He has been great for us since he joined,'' Sabonis said. ''He comes out and i feel like he's our x factor. He comes out and knocks down shots when he has to.
He also gets offensive rebounds, post on little guys, he does a little bit of everything. It's great to have him here.''

Since joining Sacramento last month, Lyles has played eight games and averaged 8.5 points 4.8 rebounds.
New father Sabonis is proving the game that made him an NBA All-Star in previous seasons.
The Lithuania national was traded from the Pacers to Sacramento last month in a deal that sent Tyrese Haliburton and Buddy Hield to Indiana.
This season, Sabonis is averaging 18.7 points per game while shooting 57% from the field. He is also posting 12.3 rebounds per game.
