THE PARTICULARS

Where: Golden 1 Center

When: Today, 7:30 p.m.

TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140

THREE KEYS

1. Take care of the ball: The Kings gave up 23 points off 16 turnovers in Thursday’s loss to San Antonio. They don’t want to give Minnesota easy transition looks off their mistakes.

2. Keep moving: It’s easy to get stuck watching DeMarcus Cousins work on offense, but when he has the ball, the Kings have to continue moving without the ball so the offense does not become stagnant.

3. Protect the paint: Minnesota has plenty of players who thrive when attacking the rim. The Kings have to make sure they cut down the driving lanes and make the bigs have to be there to help perimeter players.
