Kings (25-33) vs. Hornets (24-33)
Where: Golden 1 Center
When: Saturday, 2 p.m.
TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
1. Bench production: The Kings’ bench contributed a season-high 72 points in Thursday’s win over Denver. That can’t be expected every game, but the second unit remains a key.
2. Pace: Sacramento must attack on offense before Charlotte sets its defense. That means rebounding and running to try to get fast-break points and attacking the rim.
3. Swarming Kemba: Charlotte relies on All-Star guard Kemba Walker to score and facilitate. The Kings must disrupt the Hornets’ offense by making it hard on him.
