Kings (19-28) at 76ers (17-29)
Where: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia
When: Monday, 3 p.m.
TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
1. The Process: Philadelphia center Joel Embiid’s duel with DeMarcus Cousins last month in Sacramento was one of the more entertaining of the season. Like Cousins, Embiid can play anywhere on the court, and the Kings must defend him at all times.
2. Don’t force it: The Kings are 15-10 when committing 15 or fewer turnovers. Sacramento had just nine in Saturday’s win at Charlotte.
3. Matchup games: Philadelphia can play with a big lineup, so the Kings must be ready to get the most out of big men Cousins, Kosta Koufos and Willie Cauley-Stein, all of whom have played well lately. Anthony Tolliver will play a big role when the 76ers play small.
