AT WARRIORS (22-3)
Where: Oracle Arena, Oakland
Time: 7:30 p.m.
TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
1. Defend the three: Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are proficient three-point shooters. The Kings must limit their open looks and make them take contested shots.
2. Inside advantage: The Warriors don’t have a player who can slow down DeMarcus Cousins one-on-one. Their best option, Andrew Bogut, is out with a knee injury. Playing through Cousins will create open shots for other players.
3. Transition game: The Kings want to score more off fast breaks and early offense. The Warriors might be the best team in the NBA in those situations. The Kings must stay aggressive while being disciplined on defense and not giving up easy points on breaks.
