Kings at Thunder

THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Chesapeake Arena
  • When: Sunday, 4 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
  • Records: Kings 7-14, Thunder 11-8

THREE KEYS

  • 1. Find Durant: Kevin Durant can score on anyone, but the Kings have to at least challenge him and not give up open looks, especially in transition.
  • 2. Westbrook watch: Russell Westbrook can be a one-man fast break when he gets a rebound. The Kings must stay on him at all times.
  • 3. Second push: The Thunder gets big production from its bench with Enes Kanter and Dion Waiters. Sacramento needs its bench to be productive, too.
