- 1. Get Gobert out: The Kings would be wise to attack the rim and make Utah center Rudy Gobert work. If the Kings can get him in early foul trouble or wear him down, it will make life easier as Gobert is an elite defender.
- 2. Watch the three: The Kings have a habit of allowing opponents to make a lot of three-pointers. There needs to be more focus on finding shooters and forcing tougher shots.
- 3. Control the tempo: A faster-paced game benefits the Kings. Sacramento needs to get out in transition and find easy baskets.
