When: Saturday, 6 p.m.
Never miss a local story.
TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
1. Solid perimeter defense: Chicago entered Friday shooting 31.7 percent from 3-point range. The Kings, who have struggled defending the 3-point shot, can’t allow the Bulls to get hot from the perimeter.
2. All about Butler: All-Star forward Jimmy Butler leads the Bulls at 24.8 points per game. Containing him is the priority, with Garrett Temple and Matt Barnes likely drawing the assignment.
3. Limit the giveaways: The Kings have hurt themselves lately with early turnovers. Considering how the Bulls can struggle on offense, Sacramento can’t help by giving up easy transition scores off mistakes.
