Kings at Wizards

  • Where: Verizon Center
  • When: Monday, 4 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
  • Records: Kings 11-16, Wizards, 11-14

THREE KEYS

  • 1. More defense: Sacramento continues to improve defensively after holding Toronto to 37.2 percent shooting. The Kings need that kind of effort for the entire game.
  • 2. A Wall against Wall: With the Wizards plagued by injuries, Sacramento’s focus will be containing All-Star guard John Wall. He’s averaging 19.9 points and nine assists.
  • 3. Bench production: If fatigue is an issue in the second of back-to-back games, the Kings could use offense from Darren Collsion and Marco Belinelli.
