Kings vs. Hawks
- Where: Sleep Train Arena
- When: Thursday, 7 p.m.
- TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
- Records: Kings 17-23, Hawks 25-17
- 1. Feed off the crowd: Both teams will be in the second of back-to-back games. The Kings have had some duds at home, so Thursday would be a great time to feed off the home energy for a good start.
- 2. Contain Teague: Jeff Teague was an All-Star last season but was injured when the Kings lost at Atlanta in November. If he’s allowed to have a big game, the Kings will be in trouble.
- 3. Stay with shooters: The Kings cannot allow Kyle Korver and the Hawks to find their rhythm from three-point range. That means being aware of Korver at all times and contesting shots from beyond the arc.
