Kings vs. Nuggets
- Where: Pepsi Center, Denver
- When: Saturday, 6 p.m.
- TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
- 1. Rookie ball: DeMarcus Cousins will be given the night off, so there will be plenty of opportunities for Willie Cauley-Stein to play and contribute on both ends of the court.
- 2. Pace watch: Will the Kings try to outrun the Nuggets? Many teams struggle to do so in the second of back-to-back games in the altitude.
- 3. Limit Mudiay: Denver guard Emmanuel Mudiay leads all rookies at 5.5 assists per game. The Kings must force him to shoot jumpers, which are not his strength.
