Pregame notes: Kings need to start fast against Orlando

Starting well tonight is a primary focus for the Kings.

They’ve allowed 30-plus points in the first quarter of their last three games. Curbing that trend would serve the Kings well tonight against the Orlando Magic.

The Magic are 2-19 when trailing at halftime this season. The Kings have a big advantage tonight, with DeMarcus Cousins at center, especially with Nikola Vucevic out tonight. If Cousins gets going early, the Kings should have no problem with the Magic.

Prediction time: Kings 107, Magic 101

My record: 17-16
