TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
1. Charity game: The Kings beat the Lakers on Monday in part because of their advantage at the free-throw line; they made 28, 15 more than the Lakers attempted.
2. Depth advantage: The Kings were without five players because of injury, but the Lakers were without seven and Jordan Clarkson sprained his ankle. The Kings should have enough depth to outlast the Lakers if the game is close late.
3. Playing for Karl’s goal: When George Karl took over after the All-Star break, he made surpassing last season’s 28 victories a goal. Though the game has little meaning to the rest of the league, it gives the Kings something to play for at the end of another disappointing season.
