Wednesday’s Kings game vs. the Denver Nuggets

KINGS (3-1) VS.

NUGGETS (1-2)

THE PARTICULARS

▪ Where: Sleep Train Arena

▪ Time: 7 p.m.

▪ TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140

THREE KEYS

▪ 1. Line watch: The Kings have struggled shooting but have made up for it by drawing a lot of fouls and piling up free-throw attempts. The Kings made 40 of 47 attempts in Monday’s win at Denver.

▪ 2. Paint protection: The Nuggets scored 54 points in the paint Monday, so the Kings must keep Denver’s bigs under control. Center JaVale McGee had 16 points in just 13 minutes off the bench.

▪ 3. Turnovers: The Kings had 18 turnovers Monday, about five more than what should be acceptable most nights. The Nuggets have players who want to run, so the Kings cannot commit turnovers that lead to easy points.
