Kings (15-22) vs. Pistons (18-21)
Where: Golden 1 Center
When: Tuesday, 7:30 p.m.
TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
1. Transition defense: Golden State outscored Sacramento 28-3 in fast-break points Sunday. The Pistons aren’t nearly as explosive as the Warriors, but if the Kings slack off, they can make Detroit look just as good.
2. Space and patience: With Andre Drummond, the Pistons can match up physically with DeMarcus Cousins. The Kings must space the floor, and Cousins must avoid dribbling into crowds.
3. Complete game: The Kings must play a complete 48 minutes or risk falling to 0-4 on this seven-game homestand.
