Sacramento Kings

Kings vs. Cleveland Cavaliers at a glance

Kings vs. Cavaliers

THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Quicken Loans Arena
  • When: Monday, 4 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
  • Records: Kings 21-30, Cavaliers 36-14

THREE KEYS

  • 1. First six minutes: The Kings can’t afford to allow a quick 20 points again. The Kings have given up 30 or more in the first quarter in their last seven games, including a season-high 46 Sunday.
  • 2. Find your man: Tracking down open shooters is a must. Opponents are getting too many easy looks.
  • 3. Keep it simple: Too many fancy passes can lead to turnovers , accelerate Cleveland’s transition game and increase the chance of a blowout.
