1. Get in the paint: Denver’s defense is weak, and the Kings could capitalize if they get to the rim. Willie Cauley-Stein had a career-high 29 points Feb. 23 against the Nuggets.
2. Find the offense: Sacramento has struggled to find a consistent scorer. Darren Collison, their leading scorer among healthy players, could fill that role.
3. Running game: Fast-break points are important for the Kings, who can’t rely on a dominant player in their halfcourt offense. But transition scoring depends on solid defense, and Denver is one of the league’s highest-scoring teams.
