VS. LAKERS (8-18)
▪ Where: Sleep Train Arena
▪ Time: 3 p.m.
▪ TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
▪ 1. Turnovers: It’s been a constant in nearly every loss. The Kings have not shown they can overcome their own mistakes and win, so they must eliminate errors that lead to easy points for the opposition.
▪ 2. Bench production: The Lakers rely on reserves like Carlos Boozer and Jeremy Lin for offense. The Kings need their bench to be a plus, led by Carl Landry.
▪ 3. Perimeter defense: Opposing guards and wing players have had success against the Kings lately. Sacramento cannot afford to let the Lakers become comfortable and dominate from the outside.
