AT THUNDER (30-10)
• Time: 4 p.m.
• Where: Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City
• TV: CSNCA • Radio: KHTK (1140)
1. Help on the wing: Kevin Durant is the NBA’s leading scorer. Rudy Gay can’t be expected to slow down Durant by himself. It will take a team effort to deal with one of the league’s most talented shooters.
2. Keep it moving: If the game is close, the Kings have to execute on offense and not let the ball stick with one or two players. The ball has to move to find the best possible shot.
3. Back to 100: The Kings have scored fewer than 100 points in two of their last three games, losing both. A faster pace, coupled with a focus on defense, is their best chance.
