TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (2-4) at Lakers (2-4)

Time: 6:30 p.m.

Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles

TV: CSNCA

Radio: KHTK (1140)

THREE KEYS

1. Make the easy ones: The Kings' inability to finish in the paint is a big reason they are shooting 40.1 percent. If that continues, the Kings could be in a hole early.

2. Point guard positives: The Lakers' biggest vulnerability might be at point guard, where Steve Blake starts for the injured Steve Nash and is backed up by second-year man Darius Morris. The Kings need their point guards to win this matchup.

3. Inside games: The Kings are without rookie forward Thomas Robinson, who will serve the second game of his suspension. They can't afford to get in foul trouble with their bigs.
