Starting well tonight is a primary focus for the Kings.
They’ve allowed 30-plus points in the first quarter of their last three games. Curbing that trend would serve the Kings well tonight against the Orlando Magic.
The Magic are 2-19 when trailing at halftime this season. The Kings have a big advantage tonight, with DeMarcus Cousins at center, especially with Nikola Vucevic out tonight. If Cousins gets going early, the Kings should have no problem with the Magic.
Prediction time: Kings 107, Magic 101
