Kings (14-19) at Nuggets (14-19)
Where: Pepsi Center, Denver
When: Tuesday, 6 p.m.
TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
1. The pressure to win: It’s only January, but the Kings are aware of teams they must overcome to make the playoffs. Last week in a similar situation, Sacramento lost at Portland.
2. Take away the comfort zone: The Kings have dropped two straight games, allowing their opponents to settle in on offense too easily. Sacramento must be aggressive defensively from the start and avoid depending on the bench.
3. Fresh legs: Sacramento has not played since Saturday afternoon. Denver played at Golden State on Monday night. The Kings should come out with fire.
