Kings at Warriors

THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Oracle Arena
  • When: Saturday, 7:30 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 680, 1140
  • Records: Kings 6-11; Warriors 17-0

THREE KEYS

  • 1. Find the shooters: It’s not easy considering the way the Warriors pass the ball, but the Kings must try to limit open jump shots.
  • 2. Play keep away: The Warriors excel at converting turnovers into offense, and the Kings habitually play loose with the ball. The Kings must control their possessions to stay in the game.
  • 3. Get easy points: The Warriors rarely make mistakes, but when they do, the Kings must capitalize on turnovers and defensive miscues by Golden State.
