Kings vs. Trail Blazers

THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Sleep Train Arena
  • When: Tuesday, 7 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
  • Records: Kings 31-46, Trail Blazers 41-37

THREE KEYS

  • 1. Ball control: Turnovers have been a problem most of the season, but on Saturday the Kings committed a season-low seven in a win over the Denver Nuggets.
  • 2. Sharing is winning: Every King who played Saturday had an assist. The Kings need to build on that kind of team play.
  • 3. Balanced attack: When the Kings get contributions on offense from multiple players, they are more fun to watch. They must learn from Saturday’s win and not revert to passing the ball to DeMarcus Cousins and watching him.
