1. Size matchup: The Bucks are big in the paint with 6-foot-11 All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and 7-1 center Thon Maker. With the Kings playing their youngsters, this should be another challenge for Willie Cauley-Stein, Skal Labissiere and George Papagiannis.
2. Buddy yield: Buddy Hield matched his Kings high with 18 points last game on 8-of-14 shooting. The rookie has reached double digits in 11 of 13 games with the Kings.
3. Challenge extended: Milwaukee does a lot of its scoring in the paint and has the second-highest field-goal percentage in the NBA. The Kings will have to deny their guards easy access to the lane and challenge some of those close shots.
