VS. KNICKS (29-42)
• Time: 7 p.m.
• Where: Sleep Train Arena
• TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
• 1. More McCallum?: Isaiah Thomas is questionable because of a right quadriceps contusion. This could be an opportunity to play rookie Ray McCallum more. He is averaging 19.0 minutes in his last 10 games.
• 2. Tough to cover: Carmelo Anthony is the primary scorer for the Knicks, who are making a push for the final Eastern Conference playoff berth. Anthony will be aggressive on offense, but Rudy Gay did a good job guarding the All-Star forward late in a Kings win at New York in February.
• 3. Attack the middle: The Kings will have a major advantage in the paint if they can get Tyson Chandler in foul trouble. Chandler is New York’s best option to slow down DeMarcus Cousins in the post.
– Jason Jones
