What has Sacramento done lately?
Which Kings player might be due for a big game?
Which team stat might determine the game?
Dallas dominated the first quarter against Golden State, as the Warriors got off to a slow shooting night. However, that didn't last long, and the Warriors wound up shooting 52.3% from the floor and 50% from deep. Dallas' defense must be better tonight, because regardless of the opponent, allowing that kind of efficiency doesn't bode well.
What do the Mavs need to do to be successful against the Kings?
They need to close out on shooters and crash the boards. I know, Dallas just isn't a great rebounding team, but minimizing second chances for Sacramento will be key in winning. It would be nice to see Monta return to his efficient ways, and for Chandler Parsons to continue shooting well (but, what's up with his free throw shooting as of late?), but mostly, it'd be nice if Dallas could get out to a lead and rest some guys.
This should be a win, but I don't really know what this team is anymore.
