- 1. Cousins in control: DeMarcus Cousins has scored at least 30 points in five of his past eight games against Portland. That could happen again with one of Portland’s big men, Meyers Leonard, out because of a shoulder injury.
- 2. Check for McCollum: C.J. McCollum is averaging 26.5 points in two games against the Kings this season. He’s been Portland’s leading scorer in both wins.
- 3. Bench production: The Kings might need more from the second unit in the second of back-to-back games. Portland could look to reserve guard Allen Crabbe for bench scoring. He’s averaging 11.5 points against the Kings this season.
