Kings vs. Magic
- Where: Sleep Train Arena
- When: Friday, 7 p.m.
- TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
- Records: Kings 25-38, Magic 27-36
- 1. Pound the boards: The Kings will be without one of the NBA’s best rebounders after center DeMarcus Cousins was suspended for one game. It will take a team effort to compensate for his 11.5 rebounds per game.
- 2. Find the points: And what about Cousins’ 27.4 points? Forward Rudy Gay is a likely option, but the Kings need others to chip in, and points from unexpected players could help the Kings end a three-game losing streak.
- 3. Close off the points: The Kings will be in trouble if they allow Orlando’s point guards to get in the lane consistently.
