Kings vs. Lakers
- Where: Sleep Train Arena
- When: Friday, 7 p.m.
- TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
- Ball control: The Kings had 18 turnovers in Wednesday’s season opener. Such sloppy play will keep the Lakers in a game the Kings should win.
- Early intensity: Sacramento, which started sluggishly Wednesday, must come out more focused so it doesn’t fall behind and have to play catch-up.
- More chatter: Some of the Kings’ defensive breakdowns Wednesday could be avoided with better communication, a focus of training camp that still must be stressed.
