Kings vs. Pacers

THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Sleep Train Arena
  • When: Saturday, 7:30 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
  • Records: Kings 19-23, Pacers 23-19

THREE KEYS

  • 1. More from McLemore: The Kings need guard Ben McLemore to continue to be aggressive. He’s scored in double figures in two of his last three games.
  • 2. Power game: DeMarcus Cousins is averaging 30.9 points and 13.8 rebounds in January. With Indiana dealing with injuries at center, Cousins should have his way.
  • 3. Energy plays: Willie Cauley-Stein and Quincy Acy help the Kings even when they don’t score. Their energy will be needed if Rudy Gay (left heel contusion) sits for a second game.
