1. Prepare for the punch: The Clippers need to win to secure home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs against Utah. Look for Los Angeles to come out aggressively to try put the Kings away early.
2. Take care of the ball: Turnovers will only lead to easy scoring chances for one of the best offensive teams in the league. The Kings cannot feed the Clippers’ break with mistakes.
3. Skal vs. Blake: Skal Labissiere had a rough time last month against the Clippers and fouled out. Expect Blake Griffin to try to bully the rookie again and make it a long night.
