Kings vs. Jazz

THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Sleep Train Arena
  • When: Sunday, 3 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
  • Records: Kings 25-39, Jazz 30-35

THREE KEYS

  • 1. Backcourt advantage: Utah’s backcourt has been hit hard by injuries all season. The Kings must attack the Jazz from the perimeter and stay aggressive.
  • 2. Glass work: The Kings have been outrebounded in four of their last five games. Sacramento needs a better collective effort on missed shots instead of relying on DeMarcus Cousins.
  • 3. Find the offense: The Kings shot 39.8 percent in Friday’s loss to Orlando. They aren’t built to win games when they aren’t making shots.
