KINGS (26-49) VS. JAZZ (34-42)
Where: Sleep Train Arena
Time: 6 p.m.
TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
1. Historical dominance: Is it too much to expect a third consecutive triple double from DeMarcus Cousins? Probably, but the All-Star center must continue his excellent play.
2. Fearless in the paint: Utah center Rudy Gobert has emerged as one of the league’s better shot blockers. The Kings cannot become timid and must attack Gobert, which could put him in foul trouble.
3. Defend early: The Kings must start solid on defense to stop the Jazz from finding its rhythm.
