The Kings have been off since their shocking upset of the Lakers on Tuesday, meaning they’re probably still riding high from knocking off the top team in the Western Conference and, ending their eight-game losing streak.
In that game, the Kings were successful at drawing the Lakers post players away from the basket, clearing out the lane, then letting their slashers attack the rim.
Could the same formula work again?
Or will the Lakers be able to make the adjustment defensively?
Having a game, and a full practice on Thursday certainly helped in that regard. We’ll find out shortly.
