1. Spacing: The Kings must position themselves properly to create lanes for their point guards to drive. That might be difficult because many players are learning new roles.
2. Big showing: Kosta Koufos and Willie Cauley-Stein will have a tough defensive assignment against Minnesota center Karl-Anthony Towns. The Kings need both to try to contain one of the NBA’s top young big men.
3. Watch out for Wiggins: Because of injuries, the Kings lack the size at small forward to match up with 6-foot-8Andrew Wiggins, an explosive scorer. They must be prepared to get physical with Wiggins to prevent him from becoming comfortable.
