KINGS (4-10) VS. WARRIORS (9-8)
Time: 3 p.m.
Where: Sleep Train Arena
TV: Ch. 10; Radio: 1140
1. Attack the middle: If the Kings want to try to hurt the Golden State defense, they need to be aggressive and try to get Warriors center Andrew Bogut in foul trouble. He anchors the middle and is the Warriors’ best option to slow down DeMarcus Cousins.
2. Limit turnovers: The Kings allowed 18 points off turnovers in their loss to the Clippers on Friday. Turnovers could lead to open 3-pointers for the Warriors and turn a close game into a blowout quickly.
3. Facilitating center: Cousins has 20 assists in his last three games. The Kings have lost their last three games, but that shouldn’t stop Cousins from finding his offense while setting up his teammates, too.
