Kings vs. Warriors

THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Sleep Train Arena
  • When: Saturday, 7 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 680, 1140, 950

THREE KEYS

  • 1. Fast start: The Kings have been prone to slow starts this season, which could spell disaster against the Warriors’ potent offense.
  • 2. Big aggression: Kosta Koufos and Willie Cauley-Stein must have major impacts against the Warriors’ smaller frontcourt players. That means controlling the paint defensively and rebounding.
  • 3. Pacing: The Kings are trying to master George Karl’s up-tempo offense, while the Warriors have mastered playing at a fast pace. Whether the Kings can keep up will be key.
