Kings at Magic

THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Amway Center
  • When: Saturday, 2 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
  • Records: Kings 4-9; Magic 6-6

THREE KEYS

  • 1. Keep Casspi ready: Rudy Gay is questionable with a left shoulder strain suffered during Thursday’s loss at Miami. The Kings will need Omri Casspi to be ready to start if Gay is out and to continue his solid play this season.
  • 2. Get Boogie going: Coming off his one-game suspension by the NBA, DeMarcus Cousins will be eager to get back on the court. That could lead to a big night.
  • 3. Contain the perimeter: Orlando’s trio of Elfrid Payton, Victor Oladipo and Evan Fournier could hurt the Kings. Defensive assignments must be executed precisely.
