Kings looking to stop turnovers, start fast breaks in Orlando

Ty Lawson works to help the Kings find their offense

at Magic (1-3)

THE PARTICULARS

Where: Amway Center, Orlando, Fla.

When: Thursday, 4 p.m.

TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140

THREE KEYS

1. Find easy scores: The Kings had no fast-break points in the first half of Tuesday’s loss to the Miami Heat and just six for the game. They have to get out and run for easy baskets to take pressure off the halfcourt offense.

2. Ball security: The Kings are averaging 15.0 turnovers this season, and giveaways were especially costly in both losses to start this five-game trip.

3. Rested and ready: With a day off Wednesday, the Kings must be energized to start the game. The offense has not been consistent enough for them to rely on comebacks from double-digit deficits.
