1. Inside presence: The Kings have to punish the Warriors when they use smaller lineups by going to DeMarcus Cousins in the post and dominating the glass. That’s the area where the Kings have their biggest advantage.
2. Second option: Darren Collison has to remain aggressive on offense. The offense relies on Collison more due to injuries, and he has to be a threat to keep Golden State’s defense from focusing on Cousins.
3. Stand strong early: Golden State will come out focused coming off a loss to Denver. The Kings have to be ready for Golden State to come out fast and withstand that to keep the game competitive.
