When: Friday, 4 p.m.
Never miss a local story.
TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
1. Second option: Darren Collison had 23 points in Wednesday’s overtime win at Cleveland. The Kings need Collison to continue scoring to reduce defensive pressure on DeMarcus Cousins.
2. Post facilitation: Cousins has averaged 7.5 assists in the past two games, both victories. Cousins’ ability to set up teammates from the post against double teams is important, especially when he limits his turnovers. He had only two turnovers Wednesday after six in Monday’s win at Detroit.
3. Young boost: Willie Cauley-Stein and Malachi Richardson have played well lately, adding youthful energy off the bench. Their improved play should benefit the Kings this season and beyond.
