TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (2-5) vs. Trail Blazers (2-5)

• Time: 7 p.m.

• Where: Sleep Train Arena

• TV: CSNCA

• Radio: KHTK (1140 AM)

THREE KEYS

• 1. Rookie watch: The Kings must contain Portland point guard Damian Lillard, one of the league's most exciting rookies, on pick-and-roll plays and penetration.

• 2. Shooting woes: The Kings aren't good enough on defense to win while shooting only 40.1 percent as a team. They must improve that figure.

• 3. Foul trouble: Kings forward Thomas Robinson returns from his two-game suspension tonight, but DeMarcus Cousins is still suspended for another game. So Sacramento's post players can't afford to get in foul trouble.
