AT CAVALIERS (18-33)
• Time: 4 p.m.
• Where: Quicken Loans
• TV/radio: CSNCA, NBA 1140, 950
• 1. Ball security: The Kings are 8-20 when committing 15 or more turnovers. They allowed 26 points off 18 turnovers in Sunday’s loss at Washington. Sacramento can’t allow the Cavaliers to score too many points in transition.
• 2. Ball movement: The Kings, who have failed to score more than 90 points in back-to-back games, need to get back to multiple passes on offense. The first available shot isn’t always best.
• 3. Ball containment: The Cavaliers’ Kyrie Irving and Jarrett Jack can hurt opponents with penetration, so the Kings’ perimeter defense must be solid, and shots near the rim need to be contested.
