Kings at Heat
- Where: AmericanAirlines Arena
- When: Thursday, 4:30 p.m.
- TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
- Records: Kings 4-8; Heat 6-4
- 1. Swat watch: Heat center Hassan Whiteside, a former King, has become one of the league’s premier shot blockers. The Kings must be aware of him around the rim when attacking the paint.
- 2. Besting Bosh: All-Star forward Chris Bosh is off to a good start and is a threat inside and out. Dwyane Wade is still the face of the team, but Bosh might be the most important player.
- 3. Pacesetters: Playing up-tempo can be tough in the second of back-to-back games. The Kings must maintain a good pace because they are not at their best in a slow game.
