1. Start fast: So often this season, the Kings have looked lethargic out of the gate. Their 65 second-half points Friday night weren’t enough to overcome a 17-point deficit after the first quarter. They can’t keep putting themselves in a position of having to claw back into games.
2. Turnovers: The Kings committed 21 turnovers Friday that led to 26 points for the Cavaliers. That won’t help against an Oklahoma City team that ranks third in the league in fast-break points per game.
3. Lone star: Russell Westbrook is in the midst of a potentially historic season, already with 19 triple-doubles. He’s the NBA’s leading scorer. But if the Kings can contain his supporting cast, they’ll have a shot at their second win against the Thunder.
