1. Close out: Even without injured J.R. Smith, the Cavaliers have plenty of 3-point threats in Kyrie Irving, Channing Frye and, now, Kyle Korver. The Kings will need to be active on the defensive end to contest those looks.
2. Turnovers: The Kings have committed 36 turnovers over their past two games. They’ll want to avoid another poor effort like they gave Sunday against the Warriors, who outscored them 28-3 on fast breaks.
3. Slow Kyrie: Irving averaged 31 points in two games against the Kings last season. He and the Cavaliers should be geared up for this game after two losses and with Golden State looming Monday.
