Kings vs. Denver Nuggets preview

Kings (25-39) vs. Nuggets (30-35)

THE PARTICULARS

Where: Golden 1 Center

When: Saturday, 7:30 p.m.

TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140

THREE KEYS

1. Find Wilson: The Kings lost at Denver on Monday night largely because of Wilson Chandler’s career-high 36 points. Sacramento must prevent Chandler from getting comfortable early. He had 16 points in the first quarter Monday.

2. More wing help: The Kings have little size on the perimeter, making it tough to defend Danilo Gallinari. He had 18 points against Sacramento on Monday. Having Garrett Temple available should help the Kings.

3. Keep the pressure on: The Nuggets struggle defensively, so the Kings must attack relentlessly and get into the paint.
