A look at tonight's Kings game in Chicago; including: game information, three keys to the game and probable starters.

TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (0-0) at Bulls (0-0)

• Time: 5 p.m.

Where: United Center, Chicago

TV: CSNCA

Radio: KHTK (1140)

THREE KEYS

Ball pressure: All of the talk of improved defense begins with harassing ballhandlers. Isaiah Thomas and Aaron Brooks have to make sure the Bulls can't initiate their offense without working hard.

Neutralize Noah: DeMarcus Cousins will have to use his diverse offensive game to keep Bulls center Joakim Noah off balance. If Noah is in foul trouble, Cousins should have a big game.

Maximum effort: With coach Keith Smart likely to use 10 or 11 players, the Kings have no reason not to go all out, especially on defense. It's how they have to play in order to win.
