After losing their first game in the regular season, the San Antonio Spurs (4-1) will look to bounce back on the winning track as they visit the Sacramento Kings (2-3). The Spurs are coming off a 106-84 loss to the Clippers mostly due to 20 turnovers and allowing the Clippers to shoot 55% for the game.  As for the Kings, they are coming off a narrow 105-103 win over Detroit and have won two games in a row after starting the season 0-3. But as the two teams get ready to tangle in Sacramento, here are five things to watch for during tonight's contest: • The Kings are 2-0 when leading at halftime and are 2-0 when they outrebound their opponent this season. • After five games, the Kings are holding opposing teams to 41% shooting which makes them tied for fifth in the NBA. • In his first five starts for the Kings, Isaiah Thomas averaged 19.2 points, shooting 50% from the field, 44% from the three-point line, 94% from the free-throw line, 3.8 rebounds, 6.8 assists in 35.4 minutes per game. Not bad for the last pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. • Manu Ginobili needs 28 more minutes to pass Bruce Bowen on the Spurs' all-time minutes list for eighth place. • Spurs are 4-0 when they outshoot their opponent this season.
