Where: Golden 1 Center
When: Friday, 7:30 p.m.
TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
1. Enjoy the game: Kings guard Darren Collison said that for as much effort as the team puts into playing, “we’re not having fun out there.” The veteran reminds that this is, after all, a game.
2. Home sweet home: After winning three games during a season-high eight-game trip in 12 days, the Kings are home for six contests and have nine at Golden 1 Center this month. Sacramento is 8-13 at home.
3. Maximize Malachi: Kings coach Dave Joerger said more minutes for rookie Malachi Richardson isn’t a “zero to 60” catching-up-to-speed issue. Richardson has seen more minutes lately and has the confidence of his teammates to attack.
