vs. Nets (4-11)
Where: Barclays Center
When: 3 p.m., Sunday
TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
1. Start well: Sound familiar? The Kings have often been doomed by sluggish starts. They trailed Houston 38-19 after the first quarter Friday at Golden 1 Center and by 29 in the first half of a 117-104 loss.
2. Guard the 3-ball: The Kings had their modest two-game winning streak snapped when Houston launched an NBA-record 50 3-point attempts, making 21.
3. Seize the chance: Brooklyn has lost six consecutive games, often struggling to score in stretches. Good road teams win this sort of contest.
