Kings game plan vs. Boston Celtics

KINGS (18-34)

VS. CELTICS (20-31)

THE PARTICULARS

Where: Sleep Train Arena

Time: 7 p.m.

TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140

THREE KEYS

1. Better passing: The Kings need to make better decisions to increase their assists and cut down on turnovers.

2. Energy and enthusiasm: If the Kings know anything about new coach George Karl, it’s that he will require them to play with plenty of effort, something lacking too often the past two months.

3. Prepare for everything: With a new coach, there’s really no way to know who will play when and how they will be used, so every player needs to be engaged and ready to contribute.
