Kings’ game plan vs. Spurs

Spurs at Kings

THE PARTICULARS

▪ Where: Golden 1 Center

▪ When: Today, 7:30 p.m.

▪ TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140

THREE KEYS

▪ 1. Discipline on defense: San Antonio is an efficient offensive team. If the Kings aren’t sound in their fundamentals, they will be exploited.

▪ 2. Strong in the paint: The Kings cannot allow Pau Gasol and LaMarcus Aldridge to dominate the glass. It might require Sacramento to play two bigs more than usual.

▪ 3. Worrying about Kawhi: Kawhi Leonard can impact the game on offense and defense. The Kings have to make the game as tough as possible on him, which means they need a big game from Rudy Gay to force Leonard to work on defense.
