1. Walling off Wall: Containing Washington All-Star guard John Wall means keeping bodies in front of him when possible and not allowing him to drive to the rim in transition.
2. Early energy: The Kings must avoid falling behind big in the first half. In the second night of back-to-back games, they might not have the energy to rally late.
3. Be ready to run: Washington center Marcin Gortat likes to find his offense against the Kings by beating DeMarcus Cousins and the Kings down the court.
