VS. SUNS (16-14)
▪ Where: Sleep Train Arena
▪ Time: 7 p.m.
▪ TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
▪ 1. Focus on defense: The Kings are coming off their worst defensive showing of the season at Golden State. Communication and execution must be better or the Suns will score a lot, too.
▪ 2. I.T. prep: Former Kings guard Isaiah Thomas will look to have a big game his first time back in Sacramento as a Sun. There are enough of Thomas’ former teammates with the Kings to know what he does best.
▪ 3. Change in the middle: The Suns were slumping but are 4-0 since putting second-year center Alex Len in the starting lineup. The Kings have to test Len and see if they can get him into foul trouble.
