1. Don’t make it easy: The Kings allowed 24 points off 18 turnovers in Wednesday’s loss at San Antonio. The Magic only average 95.3 points, so helping its offense with turnovers would put the Kings in a bad position.
2. Back on the break : After a season-high 29 fast-break points Tuesday at New York, the Kings had only 14 against the Spurs. Defending and running will keep the Kings’ shooting percentage higher. They shot 37.2 percent at San Antonio.
3. Trust the pass: If the ball stops moving, the Kings cannot generate good looks on offense. DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay are good at scoring in traffic, but it’s not the ideal plan for success.
