1. Speed advantage: Indiana center Roy Hibbert is a defensive force, but he can’t match DeMarcus Cousins’ athleticism. Look for the Kings to exploit that by moving Cousins away from the rim to attack.
2. Second wind: It’s the third game in four nights for the Kings. If the bench can provide a lift, the starters will be fresher to close the game.
3. Defensive pressure: The Pacers average just 95.0 points, so the Kings must be aggressive and prevent Indiana from gaining confidence with easy looks.
