Kings at Spurs

THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: AT&T Center
  • When: Saturday, 5:30 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
  • Records: Kings 25-35, Spurs 52-9

THREE KEYS

  • 1. Keep up the point: The Kings had one of their better defensive efforts against a point guard in Thursday’s win at Dallas. It will be tougher against Tony Parker.
  • 2. Moving Cousins: If the Kings post up DeMarcus Cousins too often, they will be easy to defend. Cousins must move the ball while his teammates attack San Antonio’s defense.
  • 3. San Antonio Marco: Kings guard Marco Belinelli has scored 16 points in back-to-back games, looking more like the player he was with San Antonio. That’s who the Kings need to show up to have a chance to upset the Spurs.
