1. Rim protector: Former King Hassan Whiteside has become one of the NBA’s premier shot blockers. He has 10 blocks through three games and at least one in 32 consecutive games. Getting him in foul trouble would help the Kings.
2. Contain the point: Keeping Miami point guard Goran Dragic from controlling the game is a must. He’s averaging 18.3 points and 6.7 assists.
3. Get tough on ‘D’: Entering Monday, the Kings were allowing opponents to shoot 47.8 percent, second-highest in the league, and they can ill afford to let that develop into a trend.
