Kings game plan vs. Golden State Warriors

KINGS (17-29) VS.

WARRIORS (37-8)

THE PARTICULARS

Where: Sleep Train Arena

Time: 7 p.m.

TV/radio: CSNCA, 680, 950, 1140

THREE KEYS

1. Slow down: The Kings must slow the tempo and go to center DeMarcus Cousins to help control the game in the paint.

2. Monitor the arc: The Warriors thrive on three-point shots, so the Kings must contest them, and the defense has to play together because Golden State is one of the best passing teams in the league.

3. Nothing easy: The Kings cannot afford to give Golden State easy looks in transition off turnovers. The Warriors excel in the open court because they can get to the rim or pull up for threes.
