at Pistons (21-24)
Where: The Palace of Auburn Hills, Auburn Hills, Mich.
When: Monday, 4:30 p.m.
TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
1. Easy baskets: The Kings must generate more points in transition. Otherwise, they have to rely on DeMarcus Cousins in the halfcourt offense.
2. Turnovers: The Kings are 4-17 when committing 15 or more turnovers. They cannot afford to give up easy points off mistakes on the road.
3. Mental toughness: Sacramento is on a season-worst five-game losing streak, and the last loss was especially tough. The Kings must figure out how to break out of the skid. The blueprint might be how they played against Chicago – a lot of Cousins on offense and tough defense.
