INJURY TO WATCH
Sacramento power forward Skal Labissiere (ankle) is doubtful to play tonight. Small forward Garrett Temple (ankle), power forward Zach Randolph (personal) and shooting guard Iman Shumpert (foot) are all out indefinitely. Power forward Harry Giles (knees) is out for the season. For the Spurs, small forward Kawhi Leonard (quadricep) is out indefinitely.
The Spurs play their best basketball at a slow pace, whille the Kings play at one of the slowest tempos in the NBA and are not a strong offensive team. Although the last six meetings between these two teams have gone over, I think the formula is in a good spot for this one to go under as San Antonio is in the thick of a playoff race and will be very focused on the defensive end.
