1. Perimeter toughness: Toronto guards DeMar DeRozan, the NBA’s leading scorer with 35.8 points per game entering Saturday, and Kyle Lowry are aggressive and will test Sacramento. The Kings must not allow DeRozan and Lowry to penetrate at will.
2. Board work: The Raptors average 12.0 offensive rebounds, tied for third in the league. The Kings must keep that in check or risk being burned by second-chance points.
3. Force the jumper: Toronto ranks second to last in 3-point-shooting percentage in the NBA at 27.0. It’s even more reason for the Kings to seal off the lane and challenge the Raptors to win by scoring from the perimeter.
