1. One-and-done: The Kings gave up 23 second-chance points in Thursday’s loss at Orlando. That was too much to overcome against the Magic. Sacramento can’t afford to continue the trend in Milwaukee.
2. Shut down the middle: One major part of the Kings’ defense is protecting the paint, and Sacramento hasn’t been doing a very good job of that lately. Penetration has disrupted the defense and led to some of the second-chance opportunities.
3. More urgency: More than one player has noted the Kings have been slow getting into their offensive sets, leading to bad offense. The Kings must play with better pace to promote fluid offense.
