KINGS (26-48) VS PELICANS (40-34)
Where: Sleep Train Arena
Time: 7 p.m.
TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
1. Clean it up: The Kings committed 21 turnovers in Wednesday’s loss in Houston, including five each by DeMarcus Cousins and Omri Casspi. The Kings cannot give away possessions that would spark New Orleans’ offense.
2. Keep the flow: The Kings need to use the pass to help create better shots, especially with Rudy Gay out. The Kings had 30 assists Wednesday and shot 50 percent.
3. Contain Tyreke: Tyreke Evans had 25 points and 10 assists when the Pelicans beat the Kings in New Orleans last week. The Kings need to disrupt him and not allow him to find his rhythm.
