MATCHUP TO WATCH
Darren Collison and Ben McLemore vs Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan -- Toronto has one of the best backcourts in the NBA and the Kings guards must bring their A-game.
1) Turn the page –- Sacramento must play well early shedding the hangover of the current six game losing streak.
2) Guard play –- Toronto gets half of its points from Lowry, DeRozan and Lou Williams. Additionally, the Raptors are fourth in the league in turnovers, thus they value the ball and do not hurt themselves.
3) Rebound –- The Kings lead the NBA in rebound margin and controlling the glass is paramount versus the Raptors. Sacramento must rebound literally and figuratively in Toronto.
Kings -- F Carl Landry (right wrist sprain) is questionable and F Eric Moreland (left shoulder labral tear) is out.
Raptors -- None to report.
The Kings and Raptors meet for the second and final time this season on Wednesday after Sacramento fell 117-109 to Toronto at Sleep Train Arena on Dec. 2.
Sacramento and Toronto split last season’s series 1-1 as each squad won at home. The Kings lead the overall series 22-14.
Kings coach Tyrone Corbin on moving past Klay Thompson’s performance:
“We have to understand what gives us a chance. We have to first of all make sure we’re ready from jump ball and be ready to play from there on, and to understand what we need to take away from different guys and how it has to be a team effort in doing that.”
