Sacramento Kings

Kings game plan vs. L.A. Lakers

KINGS (11-10)

AT LAKERS (5-16)

THE PARTICULARS

Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles

Time: 7:30 p.m.

TV/radio: CSNCA, NBA, 1140

THREE KEYS

▪ 1. Perimeter defense: Wing players have been having their way of late against the Kings. Kobe Bryant and Nick Young could have big nights if the Kings don’t get that part of their defense in order.

▪ 2. Attack often: The Lakers have shown repeatedly their defense can be exploited. The Kings have to stay aggressive and find easy baskets.

▪ 3. Energetic effort: It’s the fourth game in five nights. The Kings need their starters to shake off their pattern of poor starts and the bench has to provide a spark.
