THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Sleep Train Arena
  • When: Monday, 7 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140

THREE KEYS

  • 1. Turnovers: The Kings gave up 29 points off 22 turnovers in Saturday’s loss to Golden State. If they have 20-plus turnovers against the Spurs, the Kings will be lucky if the game is close.
  • 2. Team rebounding: Spurs small forward Kawhi Leonard has been an effective rebounder this season, so Sacramento’s perimeter players cannot ignore him and leave rebounding to the big men. Leonard can generate his own fast break if allowed to dominate on the glass.
  • 3. Hope for health: DeMarcus Cousins (strained right Achilles’) would love to play against the Spurs. The Kings need him back with Darren Collison (hamstring) out and Seth Curry (ankle) trying to get back on the floor.
