KINGS (9-8) VS. RAPTORS (13-4)
▪ Where: Sleep Train Arena
▪ Time: 7 p.m.
▪ TV/radio: CSNCA, NBA, 1140
▪ 1. Guards on deck: Even without injured All-Star DeMar DeRozan, Toronto has plenty of guards to throw at the Kings. Starters Kyle Lowry and Greivis Vasquez and reserve Lou Williams could present problems.
▪ 2. Health watch: Center DeMarcus Cousins (virus) is questionable. The Kings have gone 0-13 without Cousins this season and last.
▪ 3. Ball watch: The Raptors average 8.2 steals, and the Kings have been prone to turnovers during their three-game losing streak. Sacramento cannot continue making mistakes that lead to easy scoring chances for opponents.
