Kings Look For Road Win In Charlotte: Game Preview


The Sacramento Kings have a lot of work ahead of them tonight after looking helpless against a powerful Grizzlies team. The Kings prepare to take on the Charlotte Bobcats in the second game of their back to back. The Kings will need to establish themselves early, and play tough nosed defense against a Bobcats team that is more talented than their record suggests.

The Kings had only nine assists, and never managed to move the ball against Memphis, and will need to play much better team basketball tonight in Charlotte.

DeMarcus Cousins has maintained his composure as he has been a major factor in the Kings recent success. But the teams success has been limited by its inability to find each other, and pass the ball. The Kings havent been able to maintain their success when they win games, and have struggled to win games away from home. The first thing they will need to win on the road is trust in one another.

Probable Starters:

Sacramento Kings

5 John Salmons Forward
34 Jason Thompson Forward
15 DeMarcus Cousins Center
32 Tyreke Evans Guard
22 Isaiah Thomas Guard

Charlotte Bobcats

14 Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Forward
21 Hakim Warrick Forward
0 Bismack Biyombo Center

15 Kemba Walker Guard
