1. Flood the paint: Utah center Rudy Gobert is one of the NBA’s best shot blockers, but the Kings still need to attack the paint. That means attacking off the dribble and going to DeMarcus Cousins.
2. Wing advantage: With Utah forward Gordon Hayward dealing with a finger injury, the Kings should have a big advantage at small forward with Rudy Gay. Finding Gay early in the game could lead to a big night for him.
3. Keep passing: Utah is one of the NBA’s better defensive teams, so the Kings must be patient and move the ball to find open shots.
