Kings (19-30) vs. Warriors (43-7)
Where: Golden 1 Center
When: Saturday, 7:30 p.m.
TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
1. Defensive awareness: The Kings cannot relax on defense because the Warriors can hurt their opponents from anywhere on the court. If the Kings are caught slipping, the Warriors will make them pay.
2. Big advantage: Sacramento’s biggest edge is with DeMarcus Cousins. The Kings must exploit that with Cousins’ scoring and passing, especially in the post.
3. Transition defense: Golden State is lethal on the fast break, so the Kings must sprint back on defense. The Warriors have multiple players capable of initiating a fast break.
